Program Structure Changes

In 2017, the program structure for the Bachelor of Criminology and Psychology program will be updated. All students will be enrolled in the updated program structure effective Semester 1, 2017.

If you are a returning student who commenced prior to 2017 you will be provided with a study plan and a transition map detailing the changes. All courses successfully completed in the old structure will be recognised in the new structure.

If you are undertaking a reduced load or have not satisfactorily completed some of your courses, are on Leave of Absence (LOA), or have deferred studies, you will not be disadvantaged by the change of program structure. You will not incur any extra costs or be required to complete extra credit points as a result of this change in program structure, as long as you follow your individual transition plan.

All students are welcome to individual academic advisement and confirmation of your requirements for completion of the program. Please contact the Program Manager or jladmin@rmit.edu.au to arrange this.
