In supporting a module or course change which occurs after the first three weeks of semester 1 and the first  two weeks of semester 2   the School is confirming that a learning agreement is in place, identifying who is responsible for each activity and indicating the timeframe by which these should happen. A template will be provided.

In signing the learning agreement both the School representative and the student will confirm that they will undertake the actions assigned to them.
