Enrolment

Most requests to alter your study plan require completion of the appropriate student form and the correct supporting documentation. Student forms can be found in Quicklinks from the MAFC student website.

Enrolment is to be completed on-line via iManage. You can enter the iManage site via Essential Services in the MAFC student website mafcstudents.mq.edu.au. Enrolment is available for units offered in the current calendar year only. For Important Dates click here.

This is very important. If you wish to discontinue a unit once the census date has passed please complete a ‘Change of Unit’ form and submit to studentsupport@mafc.mq.edu.au (refer Section 2.5 ‘Discontinuance’). All changes to a student’s study plan will be confirmed in the main Macquarie University student management system (AMIS) and can be viewed by a student by logging into eStudent. Please note that it can take a few days for the data to be confirmed.

Further information regarding enrolment dates, pre- requisites, unit note collection and other general enrolment information can be found at mafcstudents.mq.edu.au

2.1.1 ENROLMENT IN UNITS FOR WHICH THERE ARE PRE-REQUISITES

You may enrol only in units for which you have satisfied the pre-requisites (eg: successful completion of a specified core unit). In general, pre-requisites will not be waived, other than in exceptional circumstances. Any request to enrol in a unit for which a pre-requisite has not been met requires the completion of an ‘Application for Special Approval’ (waiver) form. Waiver forms must be submitted no later than five (5) working days prior to the commencement of classes and can be found in Quicklinks on the MAFC student website
mafcstudents.mq.edu.au.

Late forms will not be accepted.

The expectation is that all students enrolled in the Masters will complete the majority of their core units prior to studying electives.

2.1.2 ENROLMENTS IN UNITS FOR WHICH THERE ARE CO-REQUISITES

Enrolment in a unit for which there is a co-requisite requires a student to have either completed the corequisite unit or be enrolled concurrently in this unit.

2.1.3 ENROLMENT IN UNITS FOR WHICH THERE ARE BOTH DAY AND EVENING CLASSES

If classes in a unit are available in the day as well as in the evening, you are expected to enrol in the day class if you are a full-time student or in the evening class if you are a part-time student. Classes are timetabled on this expectation. We therefore reserve the right to move you from an evening class to a day class if you are a full- time student or from a day class to an evening class if you are a
part-time student. We will advise you of any such move.

When developing timetables we endeavour to accommodate your date preferences as much as possible. This is offset by room constraints and trying to get the right balance and group dynamics.

Please note there is a cap (maximum numbers) on all classes, once enrolled MAFC is unable to transfer students to another class.

If there are special reasons why you wish to select a day class if you are a part-time student or an evening class if you are a full-time student, you may make a request to the Program Director to continue your enrolment and/or to remain in your selected class. You should make this request by sending an email to studentsupport@mafc.mq.edu.au as soon as you become aware of those reasons and no later than four (4) working days before classes commence. In that email, you should explain your special reasons in detail and provide documentation to support your request.
