eStudent automatically checks requisite requirements for subjects and this may block your subject enrolment/s.

Requisites can be other study packages (usually subjects, sometimes courses) - referred to as ‘pre-requisites, anti-requisites, or co-requisites’, or other items (such as ‘First Aid Certificate’) - referred to as ‘other requisites’. Any combination of these can be recorded as a requisite for subjects and/or courses.

Pre-requisites, Co-requisites and Anti-requisites:

  • Pre-requisite - If subject A has subject B as a pre-requisite, subject B must be enrolled in the previous study period before subject A or completed prior to enrolling in subject A.

  • Concurrent means a subject can be taken in the same study period as its pre-requisite.

  • Co-requisite - If subject A is listed as a co-requisite for subject B, both subjects must be undertaken in the same Study Period.

  • Anti-requisite - If subject A is listed as an anti-requisite to subject B, you can only ever do one of these two subjects.

Details of requisite requirements are listed for each subject in Subject Search and will display when you try to enrol in eStudent. Details of course requisites and award requirements are available in the Course and Subject Handbook.

If you have failed to meet one or more of the requisites for the subject you will not be able to enrol in the subject until the full requisite requirement is met, or a waiver granted.

Enrolling in subjects with Pre-requisites via eStudent:

To enrol in a subject with a pre-requisite, you need to have completed or be enrolled in the pre-requisite subject. Enrol in the pre-requisite subject first, then enrol in the subject with the pre-requisite requirement. You will not be able to select both subjects at the same time to enrol.

Enrolling in Co-requisite subjects via eStudent:

You need to select both subjects to enrol at the same time.

Other Requisites:

Conditions that can be imposed on a subject or course that are not pre-, co-, or anti-requisites.

These include things such as: Blue Card, First Aid Certificate, Diving Certificate, Safety Training, Immunisation Certificate, Vacation Work with Report, and Prior Approval (a note usually accompanies this, explaining what is required).

You will need to provide documentation to your Faculty before you can enrol in subjects requiring “Other Requisites”.

What to do if you believe you have satisfied requisite requirements for a subject

Once you have investigated the requisite requirements for your subject, if you believe you meet the conditions you can submit a request for a requisite waiver via eStudent. You must detail reasons why you believe you have satisfied the conditions.

There are two areas in eStudent where you can apply for a requisite waiver:

  • In the My Study Plans tab click on Requisite Waiver, enter the code for the subject requiring a waiver and Search, click on Request a waiver for the selected study package, enter your reason for requesting a waiver in the box provided and submit your request.

  • Request Waiver Request link beside the subject on the Study Plan Details page. Enter your reason for requesting a waiver in the box provided and submit your request.

Once submitted, an email goes directly to your Faculty office. You should receive a response from your Faculty within five working days of submitting the requisite waiver request.

Students may be required to provide further documentation before a waiver can be granted.
