Your timetable

We offer two different timetable options for busy students who need a condensed timetable or the flexibility to choose early morning or evening classes.

Choosing your timetable

We know that scheduling your classes around your work, family and social commitments can be tricky. Classes in our standard timetable are offered across various weekdays at various times. You can pick and choose which classes suits you. Classes in our streamlined timetable are condensed into two weekdays and the timetable is fixed for your whole diploma program.

The standard and streamlined timetables offer the same number of class hours per week, it’s just a matter of choosing which model suits you best.

Streamlined timetable

The streamlined timetable option is available at the Melbourne Burwood campus for students enrolling to study on campus in the Diplomas of:

  • Business
  • Commerce
  • Information Technology
  • Health Sciences (Bachelor of Psychological Science, Bachelor of Health Sciences and Bachelor of Public Health and Health Promotion pathways only)

If you opt to enrol in a streamlined timetable, you will study eight fixed units that will be taught at fixed times and your classes will run across two weekdays only.

Classes are taught on campus, not online, and you must study 3 units in each of your first two trimesters, then two units in your final trimester.

This condensed model delivered over only two days per week gives you the certainty to plan your other commitments around your study. You can choose to complete your whole diploma with a streamlined timetable, on the same fixed days each trimester.

Standard timetable

Our standard timetable allows you to choose your class times across the work week. Online (domestic students only) and on-campus classes run between 9am and 7pm on weekdays (Melbourne time). Most units run as 1 x 2-hour lecture and 1 x 2-hour tutorial each week. You can also expect between 4-6 hours of private study per unit, per week.

The earlier you enrol, the more choice in class times you will have. As classes fill up during the enrolment period, there will be fewer class times available to choose from.

The standard timetable gives you more flexibility to spread your classes over the week and more flexibility in your elective unit selection.
