What is Articulation?

Articulation is an alternative pathway that you can attain indirect entry to the Masters of Information Technology (8543) degree via the Computing Graduate Certificate (7543) and Information Technology Graduate Diploma (5543). The same Course List is used for all three programs.

The entire duration will still be 2 years. Full transfer credit is granted when you complete the Computing Graduate Certificate (7543) (24uoc or 4 courses) and articulate to the Information Technology Graduate Diploma (5543) (48uoc or 8 courses) and then articulate to the Master of Information Technology (8543)(24uoc or 4 courses).

Conditions of Articulation

You must achieve a WAM of 65 or above, or not fail any courses. Students who articulate do not have the option to graduate in the program which they are articulating from.

It’s important for articulating students to note the Advanced Disciplinary Knowledge (ADK) requirement and the Core Course requirement in the Master of Information Technology (8543) and the Information Technology Graduate Diploma (5543). As students will need to start completing the required courses in the Computing Graduate Certificate (7543).

Current students wanting to articulate to the new Master of Information Technology (8543) program have to meet the requirements of the new program in their remaining four (4) courses. Students intending to do this should make their course selections based on the Master of Information Technology (8543) program structure to accommodate this.

How to Apply for Upwards Articulation

Once in the final semester of their current program, you can apply to articulate by completing the Engineering Online form.

The deadline to apply to articulate is the release of results of your final semester. After this date, articulation may not be possible as you may have been confirmed for graduation.

Once submitted, your request will be kept on file until after the release of results. You will then be notified of the outcome to your student email.

How to Apply for Downwards Articulation

You can apply to downgrade if you meet the requirements to graduate from an earlier program.

For example, a student who has completed 4 COMP/BINF courses in the Graduate Diploma in IT may apply to downgrade to the Graduate Certificate for the purposes of graduation.

You may submit a downgrade request by completing the Engineering Online form.
