Academic Regulations

You are reading the 2022/23 Academic Calendar. The 2021/22 version remains in effect until 31 August 2022 and is available here

The minimum passing grade in each midwifery course is 65%. Clinical Placement courses are graded on a Pass/Fail basis. The student is required to have successfully completed a clinical placement course before being allowed to progress to the next course level in the program.

Although satisfactory academic performance is prerequisite to advancement, it is not the sole criterion in the consideration of the suitability of a student for promotion or graduation. The Faculty reserves the right to require a student to withdraw from the program if considered to be unsuitable to proceed with the study or practice of midwifery.

A student whose academic standing is unsatisfactory may be required either to withdraw from the program or to repeat all or part of the academic work of the year.

A student who fails two courses in one academic year may be required to withdraw from the program, or to repeat all or part of the academic work of that year. A student is only permitted to fail any clinical course twice. Upon a first fail, they are offered the opportunity for remediation prior to repeating the clinical course. Should they fail the same clinical course again, they will be required to withdraw from the program.
