Australian Catholic University and the Thomas More Law School (TMLS) strongly supports the right of all people to pursue a Graduate Diploma in Migration Law and Practice.
Inherent requirements are the essential components of a course or unit that demonstrate the abilities, knowledge and skills to achieve the core learning outcomes of the course or unit, while preserving the academic integrity of the University’s learning, assessment and accreditation processes. The inherent requirements are the abilities, knowledge and skills needed to complete the course that must be met by all students.
Students with a disability or chronic health condition may be able to have reasonable adjustments made to enable them to meet these requirements.
The School is committed to making reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, professional practice and other activities to enable students to participate in their course. Reasonable adjustments must not fundamentally change the nature of the inherent requirement.
Registration as a Migration Agent in Australia is governed by the Office of the Migration Registration Authority under the Migration Act (Cth) 1985. This requires the completion of a prescribed course that covers academic content and knowledge requirements that a student must acquire in order to pass each unit.
To support prospective and current students’ decision making, a series of inherent requirement statements have been developed. These statements specify the essential skills, knowledge and abilities required for the Graduate Diploma in Migration Law and Practice. Students should use this information to make informed decisions about their chosen course of study. The statements are clustered under five domains:
- Minimum Knowledge Skills
- Ethical behaviour
- Behavioural Stability
- written communication.
The inherent requirements outlined below provide a guide to inform decision making for students and staff.
