The Monash Law Malaysia Program Student Guide

The Monash Law Malaysia Program Student Guide (updated 27 June_V2) aims to help students settle quickly into the program and provides important information about the facilities of the campus as well as rules and procedures for both Monash and Partner students.

Attendance Hurdle
There is an attendance hurdle for students in the Monash Law Malaysia program. This means that students who fail to attend at least 80% of the classes (ie who miss 3 or more classes) will receive a result of 0 N for the unit. Students who are unable to meet this requirement due to illness or other exceptional circumstances must make an application for in-semester special consideration.

Assignment submission dates
Some units will have a final assignment which will need to be emailed to the relevant academic teaching the unit 4 weeks from the end of the unit.  You do not need to stay in Malaysia after the end of the unit as long as the assignment is submitted by the due date.

Take Home Examinations Units will have a take home examination instead of an invigilated exam.  Take-home examinations will be made available to students electronically, usually by uploading the examination to the unit webpage. In some units, hard copies of the examination may be made available in the last class or through the Academic Programs Coordinator.

Take-home examinations can be submitted electronically 10 days from the end of the unit. This means that you can leave Malaysia after your exams in other units (if any), and write your take-home exam anywhere you wish.

Deferred or supplementary exams

On request from a Monash student participating in the Monash Law Malaysia program, the convenor of the program will use his or her best endeavours to arrange for the student to sit an invigilated law exam at the Sunway campus for a deferred or supplementary exam relating to a unit taken in an earlier teaching period in Australia. The exam will be held at the time or as closely as possible to the time that is scheduled for students sitting the exam in Australia.
