You can change how long it takes to complete your course by altering your study load.
If you increase your study load you can finish your course in a shorter time frame. Decreasing your study load will extend the time it takes to complete your course.
Increasing your study load
A full-time study load is usually four units (40 credit points) per semester, or eight units (80 credit points) per year. If you wish to enrol in more than a full-time study load, you can consult with your Course Coordinator. Your previous academic record will be taken into account when determining your application.
Decreasing your study load
A part-time study load is usually two units (20 credit points) per semester, or four units (40 credit points) per year. If you wish to decrease your study load from full-time to part-time, you just need to enrol in fewer units per semester. For example, if you're a full-time student and you want to decrease your study load, you can enrol in two units per semester instead of four.
