    Planning your enrolment is an important start to your university life. It is an exciting time where you explore your options and plan your courses for your upcoming study periods.

    Postgraduate and Undergraduate students

    To help choose your courses go to Courses and programs and select your degree and go to the 'What will I study?' tab (in the top menu). This is where your program structure and program requirements are listed. You must complete the courses and requirements listed in order to successfully complete your degree program. This includes any majors and/or minors and if you have any post-admission requirements.

    On the 'What will I study?' tab, select:

    • Study location
    • Starting semester
    • Year of commencement

    This will display your commencing program structure and the current recommended study sequence. You should follow your commencing program structure when enrolling.

    Scroll to the bottom of the page to view your program requirements and notes. You can download this page as a PDF using the button at the bottom of the page.

    TPP students

    Refer to the recommended TPP courses for USC programs and find the undergraduate program you wish to continue on to after TPP from the list to view the recommended courses to enrol in.

    Note for Postgraduate, Undergraduate and TPP students:
    If you have not received any course credit from previous study, enrol in your courses in the order shown in your recommended study sequence (3-4 courses is full-time, 1-2 courses is part-time). Keep in mind studying less than four courses per study period will extend the normal duration of your program.

    • If you have received course credit from previous studies, refer to the Planning your study page to identify your remaining courses. Use your recommended study sequence to guide the order in which you enrol into your remaining courses.

    View the Academic calendar to check the cut-off dates to add, swap or drop classes for each study period.

    To map out your future enrolment refer to the Planning your study web page. This will enable you to manage your progress throughout your degree to suit your needs.
