Table D - Dalyell Stream

The Dalyell stream offers high-achieving students opportunities to gain greater breadth and depth of learning in their degree. Students who participate in the Dalyell stream are known as Dalyell Scholars.

Read more about the Dalyell stream.

Dalyell stream units

Students must be enrolled in the Dalyell stream to take Dalyell stream units.

Dalyell Scholars must take 12 credit points of Dalyell stream units in addition to their degree requirements.

Dalyell stream units emphasise the development of vision, depth of understanding, adaptability, breadth of perspective, societal contribution and a high level of capability in operating across disciplinary and cultural boundaries. Dalyell Scholars may take Dalyell stream units offered by any faculty.

Accelerated Enrolment and Enrichment units

Dalyell Scholars may also accelerate their enrolment within their core, program, major(s) or minor(s), and / or take enrichment units from outside of their discipline, in order to enhance the depth and breadth of their study.

Accelerated enrolment means you take units of study at a higher level earlier in your degrees. Accelerated units must come from within your core, program, major(s) or minors(s) and will act as substitutions for that degree component’s usual requirements. Students interested in accelerating their enrolment should contact their Dalyell Faculty Lead to discuss the opportunities available.

Enrichment units are a group of units of study that a Dalyell Scholar can take as an elective, either from within their own faculty or from a range of faculties across the University.

Enrichment units are available from:

  • Architecture, Design and Planning
  • Arts and Social Sciences
  • Business School
  • Engineering
  • Medicine and Health; and
  • Science.

Dalyell Scholars can enrol in enrichment units through the special permission process, and can take units at their own year level, or up to two years higher than their year level.

For example, a Dalyell Scholar in the first year of their degree can enrol in 2000 and 3000-level enrichment units.

A Dalyell Scholar in the second year of their degree can enrol in 2000, 3000 and 4000-level enrichment units. Pre-requisites for these units are waived for Dalyell Scholars.
