2018 Enrolment Program Structure

For students who commence their study in this program from 1 January 2016 onwards, please note that some courses listed in this structure will have their course marks count toward your program's weighted average mark. Your weighted average mark will determine the honours level of your award once you have completed the program. If a course counts toward your weighted average mark, that fact will be stated in its course guide. In Enrolment Online, after you completed your course enrolment, you will be notified which of the enrolled courses will count toward the weighted average mark.

To graduate you must complete the following:

 

Work experience:

In addition to completing the courses in the program, you are expected to obtain a minimum of 12 weeks work experience during your program. This is usually undertaken in vacation periods of the program.

 

Students articulating from RMIT's School of Vocational Engineering, Health and Sciences with an Advanced Diploma in Surveying or Advanced Diploma in Spatial Information Services:

Students who have completed the Advanced Diploma in Surveying or Advanced Diploma in Spatial Information Services will be eligible for Credit Transfer in accordance with the articulation agreement between the programs.

You are strongly advised to apply for credit transfer during your first week in the program via the RMIT Connect Portal (https://rmit.service-now.com/connect/?id=rmit_index)

 

Students transferring from BH116 - Bachelor of Applied Science (Surveying)(Honours):

Students who have completed at least the first year of BH116 will be accepted into BH117. Students will not be required to complete MATH2211, but will be required to enrol into an additional program elective in its place. 

Students will receive credits for all courses common between BH116 and BH117. These common courses will be included in the calculation of program Grade Point Average.

 

Students transferring or entering from other Higher Education programs:

Students who have partially or fully completed another higher education program may be eligible for some Credit Transfer/Recognition of Prior Learning.

 

Program Transition Plan

Please note that this program has a program transition plan that outlines key changes to the BH117 program effective 2017. This information can be found here. Students must refer to this information for their 2018 enrolments.
