Other student resources


While the information provided in the Handbook was correct at the time of publication, Monash University reserves the right to alter procedures, fees and regulations should the need arise. Students should carefully read all official correspondence, other sources of information for students and the official University noticeboards to be aware of changes to the information in the Handbook. The inclusion in a publication of details of a course in no way creates an obligation on the part of the University to teach it in any given year, or to teach it in the manner described. The University reserves the right to discontinue or vary courses at any time without notice.

Students should always check with the relevant faculty officers when planning their courses. Some courses and units are described which may alter or may not be offered due to insufficient enrolments or changes to teaching personnel.

All information in the Handbook must be read in consultation with the relevant Handbook change register. The information in this Handbook is correct as at the date of viewing/printing.
