- About Deakin
Enrolled students can plan their course online at StudentConnect.
At Deakin University a courseis made of units. A group of units in the same subject area are called a major sequence (in undergraduate courses) or a specialisation (in postgraduate courses).
Many units have a prerequisite requirement. This means that you must complete and pass a particular unit or units before you can enrol in that next unit.
The normal study load for full-time students is 4 credits points in each trimester.
You can enrol in up to 5 credit points in any trimester after your first year. However, you will need permission from an enrolment officer. Permission will only be given if you can show evidence of a strong academic record or if it is the final unit you need to graduate.
Refer to the course rules for your course in the Current Students course search or seek guidance from a Faculty Student Adviser at your campus office. Monitor your progress through your course and your course requirements in StudentConnect via the Course completion link. Prerequisite requirements for all units must be met.
You can take up to 8 credit points from another faculty. However, this depends on the number of elective units available in your course.
You may wish to view model degree structures which may assist you with the planning of your course.
