Credit arrangements

Students who successfully complete ATS1901 and ATS1902 and subsequently gain a place in a Monash University degree that allows a Journalism Studies sequence will have the following options:
OPTION 1: Receiving credit
Students may elect to receive credit for the successful completion of these units and then enrol in subsequent units in Journalism Studies at second year level and subsequently third year level units.
OPTION 2: No credit but advanced placement
Students who wish to maximise the amount of Journalism Studies they can study in their degree may use their Monash Extension units as a prerequisite to allow them to enrol in subsequent units for which ATS1901 and ATS1902 are pre-requisites.
