Can a student who is completing an Honours degree at the University of Auckland in 2016 transfer to the Master of Commerce?

A special arrangement has been made to enable students who complete the requirements for the 120–point Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) in Semester 2, 2016, to transfer to the Master of Commerce in 2017. They will graduate with a Master of Commerce instead of a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) following the successful completion of a 60 point dissertation.

Will there be two intakes for this new Master of Commerce?

It is currently proposed that there will only be one intake each year. Any variations will be considered on a case-by-case basis and will depend on the discipline and the availability of appropriate courses.
