If you fail to meet the pre-requisites ...

Below is the official school response:

We have recently changed the pre-requisites for a number of postgraduate courses. While we encourage students to plan ahead, students must also be prepared for changes to course offerings and prerequisites during their studies.

The prerequisite for COMP6714 was previously COMP9024, while it is now COMP9020 and COMP9021. This change was made at the beginning of the year. As the course is strongly based on knowledge gained in COMP9020 and students had time to adjust their S1, 2017 enrolment, we will not be allowing students to enrol in COMP6714 based on completion of the old pre-requisite COMP9024.

What this means for you is that you should take COMP9020 in the coming Semester 2, 2017 and aim to take COMP6714 in a later semester.

Should you wish to apply for advanced standing of COMP9020, please note that we are currently modifying our policy on advanced standing applications. As we are in a transition period, we are collecting all advanced standing applications for now until we can confirm our policies. Please find the form online here: https://www.engineering.unsw.edu.au/computer-science-engineering/sites/cse/files/MIT_Exemption_Application.pdf.

You will be notified of the outcome of your application as soon as possible. Though please be aware, this may take a couple of weeks to finalise.
