Inherent requirement domains

To provide clarity and consistency, the inherent requirement statements are grouped under several domains. Courses may contain some or all of these domains.


Reasonable adjustments

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA)1992 provides legal protection for everyone in Australia against discrimination based on disability.

The DDA through the Disability Standards for Education 2005, requires institutions to make reasonable adjustments to enable the student with a disability to participate in education on the same basis as a student without a disability.

Reasonable adjustments are modifications made to the

  • learning environment,
  • teaching delivery, or
  • assessment method

used to help students with a disability or chronic health condition to access and participate in education on the same basis as those without a disability. Reasonable adjustments facilitate students meeting the inherent requirements of their course of study.
