Important information about planning your enrolment

  • A valid criminal history record check (also known as police check) document must be submitted, in order to re-enrol after the first term of enrolment. If student placement is undertaken within three years of submission of a police check, students will not be required to submit another check for placement purposes.  Information on how to obtain a National Criminal History Record Check can be accessed here. For any questions regarding the purpose of the check and what may prevent students from re-enrolling, please check the Frequently Asked Questions or contact the School of Counselling at postgrad@acap.edu.au.
  • Units generally do not have to be completed in a set order within each year (except for the foundational first year units and/or where prerequisites are set, as indicated).
  • A pre-requisite unit is a unit that lays the foundation for another, and must therefore be completed prior.
  • Not all units are offered every trimester. Please refer to the Yearly Planner and the current timetable page when planning your enrolment for the academic year.
  • Students are strongly encouraged to plan their enrolment for the year ahead of time, including enrolment in electives during the academic year.
