1 Common Rules Courses leading to the Awarding of a Professional Doctorate (Research) Doctor of Version: 3.00 Approved: Council Date: 20 June 2008 Administered: Governance Next Review: June 2011 COMMON RULES - Courses leading to the Awarding of a Professional Doctorate - Doctor of. Council has made Common Rules which provide course structures and rules for Higher Education Awards. Initially, these were approved as a single document which covered the full range of Higher Education Award types, but for ease of use, they have now been dissected into separate documents, with each document having common Introduction, Definition and General Rules sections. 1. INTRODUCTION The processes involved in ensuring public accountability in terms of standards for the courses that CDU offers are quite distinct. For a higher education course CDU is self-accrediting hence the need for its own rules under which to operate. Within the VET sector CDU does not generally self-accredit and so must adhere to external national principles and rules. Even in cases of self accreditation these external rules are followed. Consequently Charles Darwin University has no general rules for VET courses as for these awards a framework for accreditation exists external to the University. Nationally endorsed training packages are progressively replacing many accredited vocational courses. Training Package qualifications provide nationally consistent qualifications based directly on competency standards. For further information visit These course rules apply to higher education diplomas, advanced diplomas, associate degrees, degrees of Bachelor, Honours Bachelor degrees, postgraduate certificates and diplomas, degrees of Master and doctorates; specific awards are listed in the By-Laws. For all these awards there are some General Rules; as described below. For each category of award there is a common set of rules applicable to all programs leading to an award in that category. In addition, each course may have associated with it Specific Rules that apply only to that course in addition to the Common Rules; Specific Rules are described elsewhere with course details. In this framework the same nomenclature is used in describing all courses, and courses in the same category have the same basic structure. The result is a simple and flexible arrangement that supports a wide variety of courses of study and a substantial degree of choice. 2. DEFINITIONS Council Faculty/ IAS Faculty/ IAS Board Dean/ Director the University means the Council of the Charles Darwin University. means the Faculty or the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) in which the candidate is enrolled for their course. means the primary academic body responsible for policy regarding academic affairs of the Faculty/ IAS. means the Dean of the Faculty or Director of the IAS (or delegate) in which the student is enrolled as a candidate. means the Charles Darwin University.

2 Award Course Specialisation Unit Independent study unit Specific Rules Standard Load Intensive Study Combined Degrees is a recognised certification of achievement or competence which may be granted to a student after completions of all the requirements of a course. is a program of study formally approved/accredited and which leads to an academic award of the University. is an approved combination of units from one identified disciplinary or multi-disciplinary sequence/strand which totals at least 60 credit points of which, at least 40 credit points must be 200 and 300 level units. is a set amount of academic work often characterised by a set of lectures, tutorials, workshops and other teaching and learning sessions, the basic building block of a course. A unit is normally studied over one semester. With each unit is associated a number of credit points which are intended to give a value to the unit, indicating its contribution to the requirements of a course and to the enrolment load of the student. It is also an indicator of the amount of work the unit might entail. Most units are 10 credit points; such a unit represents a quarter of a load for a semester, that is, about hours total study time for a week for an average student. A full coursework load for a semester is 40 points; a full load for the year is 80 credit points. Credit points are normally associated with units in multiples of 10 only. A unit is identified as level 100, 200, 300, 400, according to its academic level. Units making up a course are also classified as: core units which cover the fundamental principles and knowledge that are compulsory for study within the course; specialist electives which cover material that is desirable for study within the course or which are needed for specialisation in a particular area; electives covering material that may or may not be directly relevant to the field of study underlying the course, but which are relevant to undergraduate study generally. is a unit whose content and structure are agreed by a student and a staff member responsible for the course of which it is intended to be a part. are rules specific to a course and separate to the Common Course Rules, approved by Academic Board. is a real or notional program of studies, which a student would be required to undertaken in a full year of a particular course. The University has adopted 80 credit points as its standard load. is when the workload for a period is higher than would normally be expected for the period. For example, a one year course where units total 120 points of study is equivalent to one which would be studied over 18 months at normal pace. A number of courses are available in intensive mode. consists of two awards for which all course requirements have been met through an approved program of study. Such a degree generally requires a longer period of study than for the individual awards comprising it, but the total study period may be less than that required to meet the requirements of the awards individually.

3 Conjoint Awards and/or Conjoint Degrees 3. GENERAL RULES refer to situations where two institutions arrange to deliver an award or course and issue testamurs that contain both institutional logos. They should not be confused with combined degrees (such as Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws). A small number of rules apply to all courses; these are outlined below. In addition, unless otherwise stated in common or specific rules, all courses are subject to University policies including those dealing with admission, credit transfer, recognition of prior learning, assessment and exclusion. In particular, for courses at or beyond the level of the degree of Bachelor, credit for skills recognition of any form will not exceed two thirds of the total credit points; for all other courses, credit for skills recognition may be up to one hundred per cent of the total credit points for the course. The following rules apply to all courses: 3.1 Registration A candidate for an award shall be registered in one Faculty/ IAS for an award as specified in the Degrees and Other Awards By-laws but may study in more than one Faculty/ IAS. 3.2 Concurrent Studies Except with the prior approval of the Dean/ Director of the Faculty/ IAS in which the candidate is registered or, in the case of a candidate for a research degree, the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research, a candidate shall not be registered concurrently for any other award of the University or any other tertiary institution, except if undertaking a conjoint award. A candidate undertaking a combined degree shall enrol through a single Faculty/ IAS with the designated administrative responsibilities for the particular award. 3.3 Leave of Absence The Dean/ Director of the Faculty/ IAS in which a candidate is registered, or the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research, on the recommendation of the appropriate Dean/ Director in the case of a candidate for a research degree, may grant leave of absence from a course of study in special cases. The period of such leave shall not be counted as part of the period of candidature specified for the course. 3.4 Termination A candidate whose progress is unsatisfactory may be excluded or have candidature terminated from an award in accordance with the provisions of the Exclusion Rules. Candidature for research degrees and Professional Doctorates may be terminated by the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research, and relevant Faculty/ IAS Board respectively, pursuant to the Rules for these awards set out below. 3.5 Show Cause A candidate may be issued with a notice to show cause in an award in accordance with the provisions of the Exclusion Rules. Candidates for research degrees and Professional Doctorates may be issued with a notice to show cause by the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research, and relevant Faculty/ IAS Board respectively, pursuant to the Rules for these awards set out below. 4 COMMON RULES - COURSES LEADING TO THE AWARDING OF A PROFESSIONAL DOCTORATE (Research) Definitions the Panel means the Research Panel and/or the Chair of the Research Panel who is the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research Faculty/IAS Board means the Panel convened within the Faculty/IAS in which the student is enrolled as a candidate and which is responsible for assessing the examiners reports and making recommendations to the Research Panel Page 3 of 10
4 Dean/ Director Program Adviser Thesis Supervisor 4.1 Preamble means the Dean of the Faculty or Director of the IAS (or delegate) in which the student is enrolled as a candidate. means a full-time member of the University academic staff appointed by the Faculty/ IAS. means the presentation of results of the research component, whether by written or other means. means a full-time academic staff member of the University appointed by the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research, in accordance with the University Policy on PhD candidature. The University offers a degree of Doctor of Philosophy which emphasises original research. However, in education for professions other than academe there are many circumstances where a program of study of equivalent standing to, but different from, that for a Doctor of Philosophy is more appropriate. Such a program would: provide advanced study and reflection on practice in a professional field for people of standing in their profession by both drawing on their professional experience and expertise, and extending it; provide opportunity to bring together in a scholarly program of study and research professional work done over a period of time. Such a program, leading to the award of a Professional Doctorate, will be oriented to the informed and critical application of knowledge to problems and issues concerning the professions of professional practice and will include both a coursework component and a research component, the latter comprising at least two-thirds of the program. 4.2 Preliminary (1) These Rules may be cited as the Professional Doctorate (Research) Rules. (2) These Rules apply to courses of study leading to a degree of Doctor as listed in the Degrees and Other Awards By-laws. 4.3 Application A person seeking to study for a Professional Doctorate shall apply to the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research on the prescribed form to be admitted as a candidate. 4.4 Qualification for Admission (1) An applicant may on the recommendation of the Faculty/ IAS Board be admitted as a candidate for the degree if that person: (i) has qualified for admission in the University to the degree of Bachelor with first or second class Honours Division A; or (ii) holds qualifications from the University or another tertiary institution deemed by the Faculty/ IAS Board to be equivalent to those in (i) and approved as sufficient qualification; and has relevant professional experience, typically five years which may be reduced to a minimum of two years by the Faculty/ IAS Board. (2) A person may appeal against the determination of the Faculty/IAS Board not to admit to candidature for a degree of Professional Doctorate. Persons wishing to lodge an appeal should refer to the following processes, located on CDU s Governance website: Student Administrative Complaints and Appeals Process Student Academic Grievance, Complaints and Appeals Process 4.5 Credit for Previous Study Credit may be granted for previous study at an equivalent level in accordance with the Rules and Policies for Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning.
