The minimum amount of full-time study shall be 20 contact hours per week for ECA Graduate Institute programs, taken as an average for each term while the course is in session. For ECA Graduate Institute programs, the number of weeks of study in an Academic year is 40 to 48 weeks per year (4 terms of 10 to 12 weeks each). The duration of each course has been determined on the basis of the normal amount of full-time study required to complete the course.

Before lodging your enrolment application you should consider whether you would have enough money to cover: Living expenses, Airfares, Course tuition fees, Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and all general expenses including books and other items required during your stay in Australia. Students are not required to be enrolled full-time in their final term where the students have been required to repeat units. Students are not permitted to repeat a unit of study more than twice.
