Assessment Scores

Based on your assessment scores, you will be placed into either Communications Foundations (COMM19997) or Essential Communication Skills (COMM19999).

Students who are placed into Communications Foundations will then need to complete Essential Communication Skills. The successful completion of Essential Communication Skills is a requirement of graduation; additional course fees will be incurred for students who do not take Essential Communication Skills in the first semester of their program.
