Faculty of Arts
Enrolling in courses
Here you will find information about enrolment in postgraduate courses.
Make sure you have followed application processes. See information about how to apply.
You should consult the Graduate Adviser for your subject before applying. Graduate Advisers are listed under "key contacts" on our department websites.
Submit the Postgraduate Course Enrolment form.
Enrolment for 2013 opens on 5 November 2012. We strongly advise you to submit your enrolment form by 1 February.
After you have submitted your Postgraduate Course Enrolment Form:
1. You will receive an email confirming receipt of the Postgraduate Course Enrolment Form and providing you with a unique key code. (You are assigned a unique key code for each application, eg, if you apply for two programmes you will have two key codes.) Your key code is important and should be kept secure – you will need it to check your enrolment status and make any changes to your courses.
2. Your enrolment will be checked for approval by your department and the Assistant Dean (Postgraduate).
3. You will be notified by email if there are any problems that need to be resolved before your enrolment can be approved.
4. Once it has been approved, the Arts Students’ Centre will process your enrolment.
5. Payment of your fees invoice will finalise your enrolment. You can change your enrolment after you have paid your fees.
If you have already submitted a PG Course Enrolment form, you can change your enrolment using the PG Change Enrolment form. Deadlines apply - see information about changing your enrolment.
Go to the Postgraduate Change Enrolment form.
When applying you must provide an email address that is checked regularly. All correspondence concerning your enrolment (which may involve problems that need to be resolved) will be sent by email.
You can monitor the status of your PG Course Enrolment or PG Change Enrolment request.
You can report any problems you have trying to enrol via the Faculty's Postgraduate Course or Postgraduate Change Enrolment forms.
Full-year courses have "A and B" attached to their course codes.
"A" indicates the first half of the course, usually taught in Semester One. "B" indicates the second half of the course, usually taught in Semester Two. You must enrol in both "A" and "B" and take the course as a full-year course.
Some courses may be taken over either a full-year or a single semester. If you are taking the course as a single semester course, do not enrol in the A or B coded version.
The University limits how many points you can enrol in.
The maximum permitted is 170 points over an academic year. This may include up to 80 points in each of Semesters One or Two, or 150 points across Semesters One and Two and 30 points in Summer School.
For definitions of full-time and part-time study, see the University enrolment regulations.
For student loans and allowances, check criteria with StudyLink or the Student Information Centre.
To help avoid problems and delays:
- Provide a current email address that you check regularly, and keep your personal details current on Student Services Online.
- Supply all verified documents requested by the University promptly and to the correct address.
- Check that all the courses you want to take will be available, and when.
- Indicate A and B courses correctly on your Postgraduate Course Enrolment Form.
- Make sure you have no timetable clashes.
- Don’t try to enrol in too many points.
