Flexible Double Degrees

  • If both components of your Flexible Double Degree are within the College of Business and Economics (for example Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Finance), you may have courses which are required in both programs (for example both Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Finance require BUSN1001).
  • If this occurs within your CBE FDD, you are required to do the course only once and replace the double up of the course with a University wide elective or any course from CBE List 1
  • Please note that you cannot exceed 8 out of college electives
  • You cannot exceed the maximum of 10 courses of 1000 level.
  • If you are in a flexible double degree with another college, you cannot have out of college electives as part of your CBE Degree. You must have 16 CBE courses to count towards the CBE component of your flexible double degree.

It is the student's responsibility to select electives in such a way that:

  • they satisfy prerequisites for the corresponding course/s.
  • they conform to the rules set out in Programs and Courses or if unsure seek advice from the CBE office.

 It is the student's responsibility to select the courses appropriate for their program.

Prerequisite Waivers

A prerequisite course is a course that the student must complete before enrolling in a more advanced course. Prerequisite courses provide the foundation knowledge and understanding on which the more advance course is based.

In certain circumstances you may apply to have the requirement to have completed the prerequisite course waived.

You will need to show that you have the required knowledge equivalent to the prerequisite course if the waiver is to be approved.

Please note that prerequiste waivers are not available

  • for any FINM & STAT courses offered by The Research School of Finance, Actuarial Studies and Statistics

The Reserach School of Economics (ECON, EMET & ECHI courses) require students to complete a Pre-requisite waiver form which needs to be signed by the lecturer and then submitted to the Research School of Economics Admin counter to collect a permission code.

The Reserach School of Managment (MGMT, MKTG, BUSI, INFS courses as well as BUSN7024 & BUSN8062) require students to contact the lecturers directly on enquiries.rsm@anu.edu.au. RSM do not require students to complete the prerequiste waiver form.

Prior to submitting an application to overload via the manage my degree section on ISIS please ensure you have enroled in 24 units (4 courses) on ISIS, have checked programs and courses to ensure the course fits within your program and you have satisied any required prerequisties.

Deadline to apply to overload is the ISIS deadline. After this date you will need supporting documentaion from the lecturer acknowleding that you will be exceeding 24 units that semester and approving your late enrolment into their course.
