Unit Workload, Resources and Materials


Murdoch University considers a 12 point unit load to be full time study. Each of the Macerata units are 3 credit points and students enrolling in all three, will need to enrol in at least one other unit in Semester 2. Students are expected to be doing 50 hours of learning for each point of load. Students engaged in a full load are expected to be doing around 40 hours a week of learning related activity if they wish to get the most out of their units.


Face to face teaching will consist of 24 lecture hours taught intensively over the three weeks. Unit examinations will be held in the last week of teaching in Macerata and any further assessments will be due in early September 2019. Please direct any queries you have in relation to assessment to your unit coordinator.

Resources and Materials

Students will be provided with materials electronically prior to the commencement of studies in Macerata. The School of Law will provide unit guides to students and most reading materials to participants on LMS (Moodle). Cross-institutional students will be given advice on the use of LMS. There will also be a Facebook page for the students attending the program.

The Students will have access to the law and general libraries at the Università di Macerata, as well as to computer laboratories and wireless Internet access. Rooms at the residence should have cable connections for Internet access, though students should bring their own cables. In addition, they will be able to remotely access Murdoch University Law Library electronic information, databases and digitised print material.
