Need help choosing papers?

The following provides an overview of what you should consider when selecting individual papers.

 

HOW MANY PAPERS AM I ABLE TO TAKE?

To ensure your course selection represents a reasonable workload there are limits to the number of papers students can take each semester.

Mode of Study

 

ARE THESE THE RIGHT PAPERS FOR MY PROGRAMME?

The basic rules for the degree or diploma are a very good place to start when choosing which papers to take, rather than finding out later that they do not fit the programme requirements and cannot be counted.

 

ARE THE PAPERS YOU WANT TO TAKE AVAILABLE?

See what papers are offered in Semester 1 and Semester 2.  The same selection of papers are available for both the Bachelor of Theology and the Graduate Diploma, full-time and part-time students.

If you intend to study by distance ensure that you check that the paper is available to both on-campus and/or distance students.

 

DO I HAVE TIMETABLE CLASHES?

Work out your timetable carefully before you enrol, taking into account all the classes shown on the weekly timetable and checking that there are no timetable clashes for your chosen papers.  The timetable will be available in early September 2017.

 

WHERE SHOULD I START?  STAGE 1 PAPERS OR AT A HIGHER LEVEL? 

100-level papers are the normal entry point to tertiary study.

A Bachelor of Theology has pre-requisites for each paper i.e. papers that must be completed before further study in the subject area of interest can be taken.  Becoming familiar with the code given to each paper will help you understand what papers have pre-requisites.

The Graduate Diploma recognises that previous study enables the student to begin with higher-level papers – without the need for prerequisites.  You can choose an combination of papers provided you include T7101 and complete 5 papers at stage 3.

 

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS FOR RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING?

Good Shepherd College recognises prior learning achieved for both completed and incomplete tertiary qualifications.  Credit may be applied for by providing official academic transcripts to the College.

 

WHAT ARE THE COSTS?  It is important to consider the costs involved in the study process. See the Fees page for more information.
