Postgraduate courses

2020

These are double-semester courses. A student must enrol into both the A and B components of the course.

Please note:

  • You have until the fourth Friday of the semester in which you first enrol into an A component to make changes without penality. If you are studying part-time, this is the fourth Friday of the first semester you enrol in.
  • After this point, you are liable for the total fees for the whole course (full or part-time), and this includes if you withdraw from the course.
