The programme of study for each candidate must be approved by the Head of the School of Māori and Indigenous Studies, and the Dean of Arts.
2.
Structure of the Certificate

To qualify for the Te Poutahi: Certificate in Arts (Māori and Indigenous Studies), a candidate must complete courses totalling at least 75 points (maximum total of 90 points) in courses listed in the Schedule to this certificate.

3.
Prerequisites

Prerequisites for all courses apply as listed in the Schedule to the Bachelor of Arts. However, prerequisites may be waived where this is appropriate to account for prior learning or experience. No credit is given towards the certificate for such prior learning.

4.
Part-time Enrolment

The certificate may be studied full or part-time. Other than in exceptional circumstances approved by the Dean of Arts, the maximum elapsed time from first enrolment will be four years, including the years in which any courses were completed for which transfer of credit is sought (see Regulation 6, below).

5.
Repeating of Courses

Courses which have been failed may be repeated.

6.
Transfer of Earlier Credit

With the approval of the Dean of Arts, courses passed within the previous five years and listed in the Schedule to the Bachelor of Arts, or courses deemed to be equivalent which have not already been credited to another qualification, may be credited to the certificate, provided that they satisfy the other regulations of the certificate. Such courses will not then be available to the Bachelor of Arts degree at a later date (except as permitted under Regulation 7, below). Up to 15 points from courses from another New Zealand university may be credited to the certificate, provided that the credit satisfies the other regulations of this certificate.

7.
Transfer of Credit to the Bachelor of Arts

With the approval of the Dean of Arts:

(a)
Any courses passed towards the certificate, less than the completed qualification (note that the certificate is considered completed when the student graduates with the certificate) may be credited towards a Bachelor of Arts degree provided that enrolment in the certificate then lapses;
(b)
No credit is available for cross-crediting to the Bachelor of Arts from a completed certificate (note that the certificate is considered completed when the student graduates with the certificate). Courses passed toward the certificate may be used for the purposes of prerequisites and majoring requirements in a subsequent Bachelor of Arts degree;
(c)
Transfer of credits from an incomplete certificate to another degree of the University will be subject to the regulations of that degree;
(d)
Transfer of credits from a completed certificate to another degree of the University will be subject to the determination of the appropriate Dean.
