Eligibility and requirements
All students enrolling in Japanese for the first time are required to complete the online language questionnaire/placement test at http://arts.unimelb.edu.au/asiainstitute/students/placement-tests. This applies to all students, from total beginners through to formal study, such as VCE or equivalent, or informally through family or overseas travel.
Upon completion of the placement test, students will receive an email with the outcome and entry point. Within 5 working days of receiving the email, students' study plans will be updated and students will be able to self-enrol into the first subject of their entry point. The results of the test are binding and enrolment can only be changed with approval from the coordinator of the language major.
It is recommended that students undertake the language placement test at least two weeks prior to the commencement of semester.
Students who have successfully completed Japanese 3A are not eligible to enrol in this subject.
Core participation requirements
The University of Melbourne is committed to providing students with reasonable adjustments to assessment and participation under the Disability Standards for Education (2005), and the Assessment and Results Policy (MPF1326). Students are expected to meet the core participation requirements for their course. These can be viewed under Entry and Participation Requirements for the course outlines in the Handbook.
Further details on how to seek academic adjustments can be found on the Student Equity and Disability Support website: http://services.unimelb.edu.au/student-equity/home
