Plan your study - UG and PG

It is important that you plan your enrolment each year to make sure you choose the right courses (subjects) to study, at the right time, so you can graduate from your degree when you plan to.

If you are unsure of some of the terminology used, search Student Central FAQs for an explanation.

It is your responsibility to enrol correctly according to your course requisites, program rules and requirements, and to be aware of the academic calendar dates.

Choose your courses (subjects) for your first year
  1. View your program page, and scroll down to the 'What will I study' section.
  2. Select the 'New or continuing student' button.
  3. Use the next three buttons to select your Location, Starting year, and Starting semester to view your program structure and study sequence.
  4. Use the 'Download PDF' button on the right-hand side of the page to download your program structure and study sequence. We recommend you save and/or print the PDF to refer to in future study planning.
  5. Check the commencing program structure and the current study sequence – you should follow these when enrolling.
  6. Note the course codes (eg BUS101 for each of the courses you plan on studying.
  7. It's recommended you select your courses for the full academic year. If you need to change which courses you study at a later date, you can do this up until the end of Week 2 of the semester.

    • If you're enrolling as a full-time student (3-4 courses per semester) enrol in your courses in the order shown in your study sequence.
    • If you're enrolling as a part-time student (1-2 courses per semester), or if you have received credit for prior studies, please follow the instructions via managing your progression.
International students

Follow the instructions above to choose your courses (subjects) for your first year. However, please note that as a condition of your Student visa, you are required to complete your program within the standard duration, or by the end date listed on your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).

If for any reason you enrol in less than the courses (subjects) listed on your study plan in any study period, it is your responsibility to ensure you can make this course up in another study period (if offered), or by approved cross-institutional study with another institution during a semester.

Additionally, you cannot study more than one-third of your overall program online and you must have at least one face-to-face course in each compulsory study period (eg semester, trimester, or session).
