Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses
Once you have accepted your offer, you need to enrol in units and sign up for classes. You will be notified when enrolments open for the year.
Plan your units
Find your course by searching for your course code (on your offer letter) in the online Handbook. Scroll down to the Structure heading to view the required units for your course. This may consist of spine units, course core units, major units and/or options units.
Take note of the unit codes and offerings of the units you want to take. You should select units for the whole calendar year.
You can choose options from a range of disciplines, excluding veterinary science, law, nursing and some chiropractic science and education units. You can use your options units to contribute towards a second major, co-major or minor if your course structure allows this.
How many units to enrol in
Full-time enrolment is 12 credit points per semester, or 24 credit points per year. This usually equates to four units per semester. An enrolment of:
- less than full-time may affect your eligibility for Centrelink and Transperth benefits or your student visa
- more than full-time is considered overloading.
Most undergraduate degrees are a total of 72 credit points and can include a maximum of 30 points for 100 level units.
Add a major or minor
Some courses may allow you to add a major or minor, to do this you will need to submit a written request through MyAnswers.
There are some restricted combinations which may not be possible due to enrolment and competitive admission requirements. A minor may be excluded if it is too similar to your major.
You will receive written confirmation once the second major or minor has been added. You can self-enrol in the units for the second major or minor prior to having it added to your record if it is unrestricted.
