3AS University begins on February 1, 2009.
To be in the running for the two major prizes you need to enrol and pass all 5 core subjects (English, Maths, Science, History, Geography). A pass entails completing and submitting the subject's task/assignment on time.
Extra credit points can be gained by enrolling in electives ( Economics, Business, Graphics and Computer Technology, Literature, Art, Psychology, LOTE (Language Other Than English), Home Ec, Phys Ed and Dance)
To be in running for the minor prizes you do not have to complete all core subjects.Each subject on offer will be run by a professor (AKA DT member) who will set a specific task or assignment for you to complete. For each completed subject you earn credit points towards graduation.
Extra credit assignments will also be on offer for each core subject and some electives. Each professor will assign bonus points to the top 10 students in each subject. Credits will be recorded in the student's profile which will be updated weekly.
The competition is open to all 3AS members. If you are not a member yet, joining is easy.Tuition is free. No HECS fees here!
