The structure of a four year tertiary degree program generally comprises the study of thirty-two courses. The term course will be used to describe a unit or subject that is studied as a discrete element of theory within a semester. Students undertake the study of eight courses per year. The following discussion is concerned only with the 4 year program and does not consider the NSW/ACT TAFE system
graduates, nor the graduates from the USQ Associate Degree
in Spatial Science (2 year program) and Bachelor Spatial
Science Technology (3 year program) whereby competencies
will be diluted in accordance to the length of the program.
It also does not address core competencies that may be
achieved through graduates of post-graduate programs
(Masters/Graduate diplomas/Graduate certificates) such as
the USQ Spatial Science Technology suite of post-graduate
programs by distance.
