Preparing for your program
Do you know everything about your degree?
Information about your degree is available on Courses & Fees
Learn the structure of your degree including core subjects, specialisation subjects and elective subjects. Make yourself familiar with terms such as pre-requisite, co-requisite, credit transfer etc.
Have you studied at tertiary level before?
If you studied at tertiary level before, you may be exempted (credit transfer) from studying certain subjects. Discuss this with your Student Enrolment Advisor before you come to Australia.
If you are unable to do so, bring all the documents that may help you to get credit transfer. These documents include transcripts, completion certificates and subject descriptions for the subjects studied. All documents must be originals and have a copy to verify that they are originals. Ideally, you would have all your credits determined before you enroll in your first semester.
What is your full-time load of study?
Being on a student visa you will need to fulfill some conditions. One of those is full-time load of study. A full-time load is 3 or 4 subjects per semester, depending on your degree.
Usually, Undergraduate Business, Accounting and Information Technology students are expected to study 4 subjects per semester, while postgraduate students are expected to study 3 subjects per semester. However, the number of subjects will depend on the specific postgraduate program you are enrolled in.
How are the classes structured?
Each subject will have scheduled three or four hours of teaching in each week, for the duration of a semester. These are usually broken into 2-hour lectures and 1 or 2-hour tutorial. You will need to attend both the lectures and tutorial.
Do you need to enroll for subjects?
You will need to enroll in specific subjects. These are selected by you, with the help of your Course Coordinator/ Academic Advisor, during the orientation week. During this week you will enroll in your first session only. Therefore, you will need to repeat the enrolment process for each other session during the times proposed by your Course Coordinator.
Things to do prior to arriving to the University:
Attend your Orientation session
on the first day of your course. It is good to have a checklist of what to do.
