If i am doing a bachelor of global studies/science and do a diploma of languages on the side. How do i complete the diploma of languages? Is it concurrent? If so, do i overload? So 5 units instead of 4 per year?

If I was accepted into Science/Arts next year (first year), would I be able to transfer mid-year into Science Advanced - Research given that I have not done Methods? The transfer page says this:
Quote
The minimum eligibility requirements for a course transfer are:

being a current Monash student (you must maintain your enrolment)
meeting the prerequisites for the new course
performing at an appropriate level in your current course
successful completion of at least 12 credit points of a Monash University course.
BUT I've seen posts on here suggesting that a transfer from Science to Biomed is possible after 6 months/1 year without having done Methods. Would it be the same in my case?

If so, what effect, if any, would a transfer have on course progression?
If the Science Adv. - Research is my ultimate goal should I just begin with a single Science degree?

Typically, when transferring, I see two types of scenarios: (1) you can bypass the prereqs if you transfer or (2) you have to complete an equivalent unit or some sort of bridging course prior to transfer. I think you've got the latter case in this instance, but I'd probably contact Monash to confirm this.

If so, what effect, if any, would a transfer have on course progression?
Would just mean that you might have to do things a bit out of sync since the BSci (Research Adv.) degree follows most of the conventions as the normal BSci, meaning that you'd have to do two first year science sequences and a maths/stats unit sometime throughout the degree.

If the Science Adv. - Research is my ultimate goal should I just begin with a single Science degree?
It's really up to you. I'd suggest you research the differences between the two degrees.

Probably a dumb question, but itís possible to retake units, right? Iím pretty sure I failed the exam for one of my units which was required to pass the unit, and itís a core subject for one of my minors. I tried adding it on WES, but it says this if I try searching the unit code: ĎThis unit is already listed in your enrolment form or has already been completed and therefore cannot be selected more than once. Please submit your enrolment form or select another unit, or contact your faculty for further advice.í I tried searching by faculty and whatever as well but it didnít come up. I also tried putting in the unit code for a unit in a different faculty so itís probably a WES thing? I know people have retaken units before and I canít find any policy restricting it, but Iím not sure why itís not working. Anyone know? Iím guessing itís maybe because WES doesnít know yet whether Iíve failed or not and wonít let me enrol in the unit this early. If I find out on July 15th whether I passed the exam, and WES letís me enrol then, (the mid-semester took 2 weeks to get marks back but I donít know if theyíre taking longer for this one) I still have time to select my lecture/tutorial dates right?

When results day comes around, you should be able to add the unit in (as long as it's running again in the next semester) if you didn't pass it. WES still considers you to still be taking the unit, so you can't take it twice. The idea is you're meant to enrol in the coming semester on the assumption you pass all your units.

Allocate+ preferences close before results day, so if you change your units around after results day, you will be selecting classes during the adjustment period (opens 2nd July). The adjustment period is first come, first serve, so times you want may not be available.

Is there anyone who does/did Bachelor of Global Studies? I was wondering what's the difference between doing a language through the 'cultural competence' specialisation and through a diploma of languages? Thanks!

Hi Monash,
What is considered financial disadvantage for SEA's/ Monash guarantee?  Is there a specific income? Are family assets considered?

Hey!
Here's a direct quote for what Monash considers financial disadvantage:
Quote
Disadvantaged financial circumstances (low income) or excessive financial obligations, demonstrated by any of the following:

you or your family receive an income-tested Centrelink benefit (e.g. Youth Allowance, Abstudy, Health Care Card or Family Tax Benefit A)
you or your family are facing financial hardship or excessive financial obligation but do not receive a Centrelink benefit (e.g. living on a farm suffering from drought or floods).

You can find this info here :)

Hope this helps! ^-^

Hey guys,

My question is will you guys have any new courses starting in 2021 for 2020 graduates (mainly in the business faculty).

I know that there is already a variety of subjects in that faculty and this might seem selfish of myself but i'm hoping to do a double degree of "Bachelor of Commerce & Bachelor of Property and Real Estate" at Deakin Uni (mainly because it doesn't have Methods as a prereq) and then hopefully transferring over to Monash because its Monash lol. So i was wanting to know if Monash would have identical courses so that i am able to transfer over.

Cheers
