Access your timetables and key dates for our Sydney Campus.

Our courses are offered in three structures:

  • trimesters (for continuing postgraduate programs)
  • postgraduate 8-Week Block for postgraduate business programs commencing in 2021
  • semesters in the Block Model for our diplomas and bachelor degrees.

Important terminology

When checking your course dates, please note that the administrative census date or last day to add units is the deadline for adding units each study period.

The census date is your last day to withdraw from your course or unit(s) without financial penalties.

If you miss census date but withdraw before the deadline for withdrawing without academic penalty (listed as WD deadline on this page) you will avoid the academic penalty (fail), but you will remain liable for the fees.

If you withdraw after the WD deadline you will fail the unit and also be liable for the fees. This is called withdraw with academic penalty (listed as WN fail on this page).
