HDR units of study

When to enrol in HDR units


The requirement to complete mandatory units of study has changed. Before you enrol, find out how this applies to you

Please be aware of the relevant enrolment deadlines for both the research and coursework components of your degree. This is because postgraduate research students can effectively study across two different academic calendars, the coursework calendar and research period calendar. Before you enrol, check our Study dates page for the:

  • census date for each research period – this is the last date you can enrol in a research period
  • last day to add for coursework – this is the last date you can add a Table R unit for your coursework
  • census date for coursework – this is the last date you can drop a Table R unit for your coursework without incurring academic penalty.

For example, if you commence your degree in Research Period 3 of 2024, the start date for your research will be 1 July 2024. If you were intending to enrol in a coursework unit for Semester 2, 2024 you would have to add the unit by 9 August 2024.

Enrolment deadlines and study dates vary each year, and are listed on the Study dates page.
