Step 2: Plan your study before you enrol


Important note: These instructions are for International Tertiary Preparation Pathway (TPP), Undergraduate (Diploma, Associate Degree and Bachelor) program and Postgraduate coursework students only.

If you have been offered a place in one of the below programs select your type to go to your next Getting started step:

  • Study Abroad or Exchange
  • Higher Degree by Research (HDR), Honours or Cross-Institutional
  • Plan your study

    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.

    1. To help choose your courses go to your program page and refer to the 'What will I study?' tab. This is where your program requirements are listed. You must follow these requirements in order to successfully complete your study program. This includes any majors and/or minors and if you have any post-admission requirements (undergraduate programs only).
    2. Next, find your study plan to view which courses you need to enrol in (core courses), when they are offered and which choices you have for any elective courses:
      • Undergraduate and Postgraduate students, from your program page, select the 'Plan your study' tab to view your study plan.
      • TPP students should 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.
    3. Choose your courses from your study plan (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. Student visa holders must complete the requirements of their program by the end date listed on their Confirmation of Enrolment.
    4. View the Academic calendar to check the cut-off dates to add, swap or drop classes for each study period.
    5. Map out your enrolment for your whole program on the Study planner (PDF 228KB) * to use as a guide for each time you enrol in future semesters. You can tick completed courses off as you go and track your progress to completing your program requirements.

    * For PDF documents you must have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded from the Adobe Download page.
