Inherent Requirements for Flinders University Undergraduate Psychology Courses
Flinders University and the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work (CEPSW) strongly support the right of all people to pursue an undergraduate psychology course.
Inherent requirements are the essential components of a course or unit that demonstrate the abilities, knowledge and skills to achieve the core learning outcomes of the course or unit, while preserving the academic integrity of the University's learning, assessment and accreditation processes. The inherent requirements are the abilities, knowledge and skills needed to complete the course that must be met by all students.
Students with a disability or chronic health condition may be able to have reasonable adjustments made to enable them to meet these requirements.
The College is committed to making reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, practicums and other activities to enable students to participate in their course. Reasonable adjustments must not fundamentally change the nature of the inherent requirement.
To support potential and current students' decision making, a series of inherent requirement statements have been developed. These statements specify the course requirements of undergraduate psychology courses for student admission and progression.
The inherent requirement statements are clustered under eight domains:
Each inherent requirement is made up of the following five levels:
Note: The examples provided are not intended as an exhaustive list.
The inherent requirements outlined below provide a guide to inform decision making for students and staff. They should be read in conjunction with the course rule for a given undergraduate psychology course, the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council Rules and Standards, and the Graduate Attributes of the Australia Undergraduate Psychology Program.
If you are intending to enrol in an undergraduate psychology course in the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work (CEPSW), you should review these inherent requirement statements and think about whether you may experience challenges meeting them for any reason, including a disability or chronic health condition. If so, you should discuss your concerns with the CEPSW staff, such as the College Disability Academic Advisor (CDAA), Course Coordinator, or Teaching Program Director. These staff can work collaboratively with you to determine reasonable adjustments to assist you to meet the inherent requirements. In the case where it is determined that inherent requirements cannot be met with reasonable adjustments, the University staff can provide guidance regarding other study options.
