The Australian School of Business has a number of computer laboratories located in the Quadrangle Building, all of which are equipped with Pentium machines. More detailed information is available in the 'Business IT Guide' on the Australian School of Business website.
In pursuit of the Business School's vision to be the leading business faculty in the Asian region, the Education Development Unit (EDU) provides support, development and leadership for both staff and students in the area of education quality and innovation. The EDU supports students within the Business School in the development and enhancement of their academic skills, by providing a range of strategies including:
Students visiting the EDU may wish to talk to staff about their learning, their language needs and improving their academic performance. Students can collect or borrow appropriate support materials, find out about workshops or make appointments for a one-hour consultation. For further information, visit the EDU website, or drop in at the EDU Learning Assistance Centre, Ground Floor, West Wing, Australian School of Business Building (Map E12) or phone: (02) 9385 5584.
The Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing, Tourism and Hospitality Management, Bachelor of Economics, Bachelor of Science in Information Systems, Bachelor of Science in Business Information Technology and all combined programs offered by the Australian School of Business assume students to have achieved a prescribed standard in Mathematics at the Higher School Certificate or equivalent. More details are available from the Admissions Office.
Undergraduate course timetables are available to students via the UNSW Class Timetable website
Enrolment information for undergraduate students of the Australian School of Business can be found at www.asb.unsw.edu.au/currentstudents/academicinformation/enrolmentinformation.
Additional information on examinations and assessment, rules and restrictions, is included at myUNSW.
For courses under the control of the various schools in the Faculty, the published grade will be determined on the basis of a composite mark which will include, on a weighted basis, the results of the final examination, other prescribed examinations, essays and assignments. The exact method of weighting the components of the composite mark may differ from course to course, but students are advised of the weighting at the commencement of each session.
Students may be required to sit for an oral and/or written supplementary examination, which will normally be held in the two weeks preceding the commencement of Session 2 or in December/January. In general, this opportunity will only be offered to a student who has been prevented from taking an end of session examination or who has been placed at a serious disadvantage during the examination and whose circumstances have improved considerably in the period since the examination was held.
The Australian School of Business advises all students to equip themselves with a portable electronic calculator, preferably one which possesses, in addition to the four basic arithmetic functions, those involving discounting and present value calculations.
These calculators should be a valuable study aid in expediting the routine aspects of assigned practical exercises throughout the year in many courses. Such calculators may also be permitted, subject to the discretion of individual examiners, in examinations for courses taught in the Australian School of Business.
