Dean's Scholars degrees are highly recognisable, giving students the edge in competitive employment. The degree offers a challenging and enriched educational experience for high-achieving students who want to perform above the level normally expected. Students are also encouraged to continue their studies through the completion of Honours and research programs.
Students complete the normal course requirements for the degree, but receive special privileges as they study such as accelerated learning, where possible, and academic mentoring. Dean’s Scholars are also encouraged to contribute to the scholarly life of the Faculty through events in the Faculty's postgraduate program.
Places are limited each year. Current students who have achieved a weighted average mark (WAM) of 80 at the end of one year of full-time study in a relevant degree may apply to transfer to the Dean’s Scholar degree.
Academic requirements and English requirements are available from the Course Finder.
Course Learning Outcomes
Students graduating from the Bachelor of Business Information Systems (Dean's Scholar) will be able to:
- Demonstrate theoretical and technical knowledge of business information systems and the ability to apply this knowledge in developing effective information systems.
- Perform analysis and design in developing computer applications within business contexts.
- Develop effective systems implementation within business contexts.
- Think creatively in identifying effective system solutions for business problems.
- Function effectively as part of a team to accomplish a set of common goals and objectives and communicate with project stake holders.
- Apply informed professional judgements regarding ethical and responsible decision making with consideration of related social responsibilities.
- Reflect upon work practices, tools and frameworks for ongoing professional development.
- Exercise critical thinking and judgement in the composition of a research-based project demonstrating understanding business information systems.
Course programs for the Dean's Scholars degrees are identical to the current non-Dean's Scholars degrees apart from the completion of CSIT395 Dean's Scholar Research Project.
Continuation in the Dean's Scholars degrees will normally be dependent on the student achieving a WAM of at least 80 in each year of study. Students who do not meet the required average will be transferred to the equivalent non-Dean's Scholars degree.
Please note that the Dean's Scholars Program is not offered to part-time students and is only available to International Students who are eligible to apply through UAC (for new students), or who have completed one year of full-time study at UOW (for current students). The program is not offered for double degrees and is not a scholarship.
