Choosing a Course

The disciplines listed below are currently available to Study Abroad & Exchange students.

Study Abroad & Exchange students can study for one or two semesters, commencing in Semester 1 (February – July) or Semester 2 (July – November).

Whether students study for one semester or two semesters with us, it is a Student Visa requirement that they study full-time. A standard full-time workload per semester is considered to be:

  • 4 courses (12 units - 100% of a full-time semester load) OR
  • 3 courses (9 units - 75% of a full-time semester load)

Summer & Winter School students can choose to study one or two courses in an intensive mode:

  • 2 courses (6 units – 50% of a full-time semester load) OR
  • 1 course (3 units - 25% of a full-time semester load)

Note: 12 units = 30 ECTS = 15 US credits

If a discipline is not listed here, it means it is unavailable to Study Abroad and Exchange students. It is essential that students consult the
Unavailable and Restricted Courses information in conjunction with the
Course Outlines information.

  • Unavailable and Restricted Courses Defined

    Please ensure you read the relevant information for your discipline before choosing your course. Unavailable courses are not offered to Study Abroad and Exchange students. Restricted courses are those courses that have very limited availability and may have specific prerequisites.

    It is essential that students consult the Unavailable and Restricted Courses information in conjunction with the Course Outlines information.

    In many disciplines students will be expected to ensure they meet the entry requirements – in others a student’s background will be checked.

    The Faculty/School may not allow a student with insufficient background knowledge to enrol into certain courses. Information about prerequisites is available on the Course Outlines page.
