Do I have to inform the university if I want to study part time?

Question:

Do I have to inform the university if I want to study part time?

Answer:

Domestic students are not required to inform the university if you wish to study part-time. A part-time study load is the equivalent of 5 or fewer units for the year, or 1 or 2 units for each session. You can simply enrol into a part-time study load on eStudent.

 

International students subject to student visa requirements are required to study a full-time load of usually 4 units per main session. Click here to find more information about student visa requirements.

 

If you are a student visa holder and are experiencing academic difficulties, or situations which are considered to be compassionate or compelling, then you may be eligible to reduce your study load.

 

To make a request:

  • Submit the "Reduce Study Load" form through AskMQ before the end of week one of the commencement of classes.
 

Please be aware that a reduced study load may:

  • Result in an extension of your course duration.
  • Require you to renew your student visa if your current visa duration does not cover the extended period.
