French Language and Culture (CU009)

Studying French language and culture will open your mind to the rich cultural diversity of one of the world's major international languages. Spoken on five continents and in main international organisations such as the UN, French is particularly relevant for Australia, given its strategic location in surrounding areas like the Pacific and Indian Ocean. This Undergraduate Certificate will give students functional levels of competency in French and excellent communicative and intercultural skills. It will enrich students with a knowledge of history, contemporary society, enable them to engage in real-world issues, and open up new ways of interacting in the world. Completion of this certificate gives students the equivalent of Level A2/B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL), the internationally recognised standard of language competence in European languages. Please note that due to unit availability this course can only be studied part-time, beginning in Semester One.

Title

1. These rules are the French Language and Culture Course Rules.

Terms Used

2. The Glossary provides an explanation of the terms used in these rules.

Applicability of the Student Rules, policies and procedures

3.(1) The Student Rules apply to students in this course.

(2) The policy, policy statements and guidance documents and student procedures apply, except as otherwise indicated in the rules for this course.

Academic Conduct Essentials, Communication and Research Skills And Indigenous Studies Essentials module

4.(1) Except as stated in (2), a student who enrols in an undergraduare degree course of the University for the first time irrespective of whether they have previously been enrolled in another course of the University, must undertake the Academic Conduct Essentials module (the ACE module), Communication and Research Skills (the CARS module) and Indigenous Studies Essentials (the ISE module) in the teaching period in which they are first enrolled.

(2) A student must successfully complete the ACE module within the first teaching period of their enrolment. Failure to complete the module within this timeframe will result in the student's unit results from this teaching period being withheld. These results will continue to be withheld until students avail themselves of a subsequent opportunity to achieve a passing grade in the ACE module. In the event that students complete units in subsequent teaching periods without completing the ACE module, these results will similarly be withheld. Students will not be permitted to submit late review or appeal applications regarding results which have been withheld for this reason and which they were unable to access in the normally permitted review period.

(3) A student who has previously achieved a result of Ungraded Pass (UP) for the CARS module or the ISE module is not required to repeat the relevant module.
