Monitoring Course Progress

The National Code requires that Holmesglen have an intervention strategy to identify and assist students at risk of not achieving course progress requirements.

Course Progress is monitored each study period. A study period at Holmesglen consists of no more than 24 weeks, within a semester or trimester. For courses of shorter duration than a semester or trimester, the study period is no more than 24 weeks.  

At the end of each study period, Holmesglen identifies students at risk of not making satisfactory course progress. These students are assessed as ‘not yet competent’ or ‘fail’ in 50% or more of their modules attempted in the study period.
 International students not making course progress, for the first time are identified as at risk. These students are provided with the Institutes Intervention Strategies, which consist of but are not limited to; Academic support, access to counselling, reduced study load if agreed by the faculty.  

Students not achieving satisfactory course progress in 2 consecutive study periods would receive a notice of Intent to Cancel Enrolment for breach of their student visa conditions. This notice will provide students with 20 working days to access Holmesglen’s Complaints and Appeals process.
For students who do not lodge an appeal or if an appeal is unsuccessful, Holmesglen must notify the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) via PRISMS that the student has not achieved satisfactory Course Progress.
