Full-time or part-time
Full-time study at Curtin usually involves enrolling in units totalling 100 credit points or above, translating to around 30 hours overall work time per week. Of course, most of our postgraduate students have a busy schedule already and choose to study part-time.
Studying part-time, you can undertake as few as 25 or 50 credit points (one or two units) per semester, which reduces your weekly workload considerably but extends the duration of your course. To further accommodate for your other commitments, postgraduate units are often held in the evenings.
