Draft selection and admission policy
The draft selection policy and procedure are now closed for comment.
The Academic Policy unit in the Academic Registrar’s Group is currently reviewing the Student selection and admission policy and its associated procedures. This is a key academic policy, and it has been given a high priority for review by Policy and Programs Committee.
The policy is fundamental to admission standards, reputation, student recruitment, profile management, access to education, and the experience of staff and students of the quality of learning and teaching at the University. The policy may become increasingly important for RMIT as we increase our global reach and pursue our strategic objectives in a sector characterised by contestability and uncapped student funding.
The policy review addresses difficulties encountered with the current policy to date, and aims to articulate clear principles to govern selection and admission at RMIT. The primary objective of the policy is to provide for effective management of selection and admission in a manner that accounts for the academic and business imperatives of this area of activity. The draft endeavours to provide for:
- the establishment of university entry requirements and program entry requirements to select applicants with the capacity to succeed in their program;
- consistent, fair and transparent selection decisions;
- documented program entry requirements and selection methodology; and
- defined roles and responsibilities for oversight and strategic management of student recruitment, selection and admission
- Draft selection and admission policy
- Draft selection and admission procedure
All staff are invited to comment on the policy. Please email your comments by COB, Monday 19 September 2011 to Ms Loredana Gibson, Senior Advisor, Policy and Process Improvement, on firstname.lastname@example.org
