Academic standing

Your academic performance is referred to as your Academic Standing.

This will be reviewed twice per year (late June–July and in November–December) and is determined by your Grade Point Average.

This process assists you to monitor your degree progress as well as enabling you to seek appropriate support for your studies where required.
