Abstract or Summary

This report reviews performance of International students enrolled in the GradDipIT, specifically changes to credit recognition for introductory modules. We found that making our introductory modules compulsory for all, regardless of previous qualifications, improved pass rates, as it eases students into New Zealand environments and students help each other.
