Question:

Do external students need to attend classes? Why can't I register for classes in eStudent?

Answer:

Choosing to enrol into a unit with an External offering means that you are not expected to attend weekly classes, as most of your unit content will be online through iLearn. This means that you will not have any classes to register in on eStudent. However, it is possible that you may need to attend a designated optional or compulsory 'on-campus day' or block of days in order to meet unit requirements. If this is the case, you may have a class to enrol into on your eStudent timetable page. 
 
It is best to contact the Unit Convenor of the unit to ascertain the attendance requirements of the unit of study, as each unit may be administered differently. You will find the contact details of your Unit Convenor in the Unit Guide.
