Choosing a course

Summer and Winter School

Study Abroad & Exchange students can choose to study one or two courses in intensive mode during Summer School or Winter School.

View the Summer and Winter School page for more information.

Semester length study

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)

Note: 12 units = 30 ECTS = 15 US credits

  • Undergraduate (UG) & postgraduate courses
