A few notes about timetabling:

- Please ensure you enter your preferences by Friday February 17th 11:59pm AEDST.
- Not all prac/seminar times will necessarily run, and are subject to interest.
- All lectures for Trimester 1 will be held exclusively online. 
- You can enter your preferences as many times as you wish. We will always use your most recent set of preferences. 
- Because of the complex nature of the 4th year units, we are unable to use the university's STAR timetable allocation system. Please ignore any emails asking you to submit timetable preferences through STAR.

FAQ

Am I eligible to complete my 4th year studies part-time?

Domestic students are able to complete their 4th year studies part-time. International students cannot undertake study part-time.

I am a part-time student completing my research project in 2019. Do I need to submit my preferences now?

No, you don't need to submit your preferences this year. Although, it might be an idea to have a look at the research projects on offer and seek out a supervisor you might like to work with in 2019. 

Part-time students must undertake the coursework units in the first year and the research thesis units in the second year.
