To complete an award course, you need to pass the right number of units for your course structure – and gain the credits points needed for your course completion requirements.
Your study load is determined by your total unit credit points. Most courses require you to take a certain number of subjects every semester to make up your designated full-time or part-time study load.
You can apply to change your study load for either of the following:
- reduce your load (International students only)
- increase your load (called 'overload').
Applications will only be granted in some circumstances.
