Inherent Requirements​

The Australian School of Applied Management (ASAM) strongly supports the rights of all people who wish to pursue a further study to achieve their potential and career objectives. ASAM is committed to fostering a learning environment that empowers and supports the personal and professional development of our students. As part of this, we embrace diversity and endeavour to accommodate all students. 

What are inherent requirements? 

Inherent requirements are the essential components of a course that demonstrate the abilities, knowledge and skills required to achieve the core learning outcomes. All students must be able to meet their course’s inherent requirements to successfully complete the course. 

Inherent requirements are concerned with abilities related to ethics, behaviour, legal compliance, communication, cognition, literacy, language, numeracy, sensory ability, reflective skills, relational skills, and sustainable performance. Details about each of these categories are provided below. 

Why are inherent requirements important? 

Inherent requirements ensure the academic integrity of a course is maintained and preserves ASAM’s learning, assessment and accreditation processes. 

Are inherent requirements the same as compulsory requirements? 

Inherent requirements refer to the learning and teaching activities specific to a particular course, such as the need for a student to behave in an ethical way, for example not cheating in assignments. 

Compulsory requirements include both compliance with ASAM policies, procedures and regulations which are applicable to all students, but also the mandatory obligations associated with a course of study e.g. completion of assignments and paying fees. 

How does this affect you? 

Starting a course of study is an important decision, and to help you decide whether a particular course is right for you we have developed a series of inherent requirement statements about each of our courses. The inherent requirements can be capabilities, knowledge or skills. Some of them you will already have when you start the course and doing the course helps refine or grow them, whereas others develop as you study. 

ASAM is committed to making reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, placement and other activities to enable students to participate in their course. Reasonable adjustments must not fundamentally change the nature of the inherent requirement. Students with a disability or chronic health condition may be able to have reasonable adjustments made to enable them to meet these requirements. Consideration is also given to students’ cultural and religious background and beliefs, which may impact on participation in their course. 

Please note; if you have a disability or chronic health condition that you are concerned may prevent you from meeting an inherent requirement, please contact the AccessAbility (Disability) Service to talk about the reasonable adjustments that may be put in place to support you during your studies as soon as possible. You may find that there is a solution that can reassure you and help you feel more confident in starting your studies. [insert phone number and/or email to AccessAbility] 

How to use the inherent requirement statements 

The inherent requirements listed for each qualification are a guide for students and staff when deciding whether you are able to comply comfortably with the learning and teaching needs of your course, and where reasonable adjustments may be available that allow you to successfully complete the course without compromising its academic integrity. 

Each inherent requirement is described in five brief sections explaining its background, definition, relevance, potential adjustments, and then some examples to help you understand how it is relevant to your proposed course of study. Your awareness of a course’s inherent requirement statements before enrolling will prepare you for any challenges or support needs during your future studies, and give you the opportunity to seek assistance to make informed decisions and plan ahead.

ASAM’s resources available for support and advice about meeting your inherent course requirements include: your Course Advisor, AccessAbility (Disability) Services and Student Learning Support.
