2017 Enrolment Program Structure

For students who commence their study in this program from 1 January 2016 onwards, please note that some courses listed in this structure will have their course marks count toward your program's weighted average mark. Your weighted average mark will determine the honours level of your award once you have completed the program. If a course counts toward your weighted average mark, that fact will be stated in its course guide. In Enrolment Online, after you completed your course enrolment, you will be notified which of the enrolled courses will count toward the weighted average mark.

Timetabling

The majority of Higher Education programs use the Student Timetabling System (STS). Go to the Student Timetabling System web page to access timetabling information.

If your program is taught by a Vocational Education (VE) school then please go to the Vocational Education timetabling website.

Material fees

Some courses and programs have material fees (fees for field trips, goods or services) associated with them. In most cases these charges are not compulsory, but are levied by the teaching school for materials they purchase on your behalf for use in your studies. Go to the Material Fees web page to check the material fees for your program and courses.

Enrolment

For more information about enrolment at RMIT University, please go to the Enrolment home page.

*Semester 1 classes generally commence in February and Semester 2 classes generally commence in July. Please contact your school for more information about specific class start days.

Policies

For more information about other RMIT University policies, please go to the Policies web site.

Student Electives

University Electives are available to Undergraduate students, and in selected Postgraduate programs.

Information about University Elective courses at RMIT is available on the University Electives web site.
