Full-time students normally complete 18 units each semester, or 36 units a year. In some circumstances you may enrol in more than 36 units. This is called an overload.
Special approval is required for any overload of more than 22.5 units per semester. You will be required to pay any fees and charges associated with the additional enrolment. You can lodge a request for overload approval via 'My Support' above.
International students studying in Australia on a student visa must normally be enrolled full-time in order to meet visa conditions. For further information refer to Do international students studying in Australia on a student visa have to enrol full-time?
Students receiving Youth Allowance and Austudy from Centrelink must be enrolled in at least 13.5 units per semester. If you are enrolled in 2 separate courses which are not recognised as official combined degrees at Flinders University, then you must be enrolled in at least 13.5 units in one of your courses each semester to remain eligible for Centrelink support.
Most undergraduate courses can be studied part time, but there are some courses that must be completed within a designated time-frame. You should check your course rule and speak to your Course Coordinator before deciding to study part time. Domestic Honours students may be able to complete their degree part time, further information can be found by searching for Honours Course Rule.
