Enrolling in coursework units

You can enrol in up to 24 points of coursework units concurrently with a research higher degree, if the board considers the coursework units necessary for successful completion of the research higher degree program.

Requests to add coursework units to an enrolment must be endorsed by supervisors and your graduate research co-ordinator. Please submit your request for addition of a coursework unit using the online form available in studentConnect or using the form below.


If more than 24 points of coursework are necessary to complete a research higher degree program, you need to complete the units:

  • as part of an approved preliminary program
    or
  • via continuing education before enrolment in a research higher degree program.
