Duration & commencement



A two year, full-time degree program will usually include four semesters of study.


Studying a program part-time is generally represented as double the standard duration of a full-time degree. You will complete the same requirements as a full-time degree, however you will complete the requirements over a longer period of time.


Most degree programs have two intakes and you can commence in either Semester 1 (late February) or Semester 2 (mid July) each year. Check the University calendar for dates.

A number of courses within degree programs are offered in our other ‘non-standard’ sessions during Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Spring. Check the program page for your degree or course information onthe Programs & Courses website to comfirm commencement dates.
