  • It is your responsibility to enrol in courses consistent with your program. The School will not guarantee credit for courses that have not been formally approved.
  • Students are not normally permitted to enrol in courses with timetable clashes, however some lecturers may approve a clash of no more than one hour.
  • A full-time load is four courses per semester, ie. 24 units of credit (UOC). International students are required to be enrolled in 24UOC and complete the degree in the minimum amount of time. Note that enrolment in 18UOC is also regarded as a full-time load for local students.
  • Students are expected to give priority to their University study commitments and any absence must clearly be for circumstances beyond your control. Work commitments are not normally considered a justification for being granted Special Consideration or withdrawal without failure after the deadline.
