How to enrol in a summer or winter unit

Summer 2020 – 2021

The Faculty is offering the following units at Clayton campus in summer 2020/2021. All units will run in the Summer B teaching period. Teaching will start in the first week of January 2021 and finish in late February 2021. Teaching and exam dates are now available.

Enrolment for summer units is now open in the Web Enrolment System (WES).

November 2020

The Faculty is also offering a number of units online in a new November teaching period. The November period will be a full 12-week teaching period starting on 2 November 2020. These units will be available to continuing students under the following conditions:

  1. You must have satisfied the prerequisites for November units by the time teaching starts - so you can’t be enrolled in a prerequisite unit in semester 2 since results for semester 2 won’t be available until 17 December.
  2. You can’t enrol in more than 6 units (36 points) across both semester 2 and the November teaching period. So if you are enrolled in 4 units in semester 2, you will be able to enrol in 2 units in November, if you are enrolled in 3 units in semester 2, you will be able to enrol in 3 units in November. This is because the semester 2 exam period will overlap with the start of November teaching.
