Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Please note this unit is marked ungraded pass/fail.
In order to pass this unit, both assignments must be submitted and achieve a pass mark.
The Graduate Diploma and Master of Counselling have been designed to meet the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) accreditation requirements, which include 200 hours face to face learning. This translates to at least an 80% attendance in each unit. It is expected that students will attend all sessions unless prevented by illness or other unforeseen situations. In these circumstances students should notify the lecturer in advance where possible. In order to meet the required professional and educational standards students must discuss catchup work with the lecturer when two sessions have been missed.
Required IT skills
You must be able to word process assessments so that they are well presented, search the library data bases for relevant journal articles and access the UCLearn Web site for this unit. It is the individual student's responsibility to access appropriate help from the university IT services or the library if he or she does not have adequate skills.
