    • if you have completed HSC German Continuers (or equivalent), you should nominate ARTS2510 Intermediate German A below;
    • if you have completed HSC German Extension (or equivalent), or achieved outstanding marks in German Continuers, or completed German Continuers and have lived in a German-speaking country for more than 3 months, or completed German courses equivalent to B1 in the Common European Framework, you should nominate ARTS3510 Advanced German A below
  4. If you are unsure of where you fit in relation to these placement patterns, you should email Dr Robert Buch.
  5. If you have grounds for diverging from the standard placement patterns, for example because several years have elapsed since you learnt German, please outline the reasons below.
  6. In some cases, mid-year enrolment, i.e. in ARTS1511 Introductory German B, ARTS2511 Intermediate German B, or ARTS3511 Advanced German B in Semester 2, may be the most appropriate option.
