There are two types of changes that can be made to an existing unit:

  • minor modification
  • minor amendment.

A minor modification is the smallest change that can be made where there is no approval required as there are a limited number of fields available to edit (as seen below).

A minor amendment opens up a number of fields that require review/ approval from within the College and sign off at Vice-Chancellor level.

Any changes to title, code, credit points or Australian Standard Classification of Education (ASCED) coding will require a new code which will mean the unit will be classified as "new" (ASCED relates to the funding levels of a unit).

Minor modification

When you make a minor modification, the following unit field is available to edit:

  • Unit Convenor.
