Study Load or Credit Points

You also need to be aware that the fees are calculated based on study load, as shown in 'Credit Points', in the Course and Unit handbook.

Credit Points are a representation of the amount of study load a student would have when studying full-time for one year. At the University of Tasmania, a full time study load equates to 100 Credit Points. For example: if you undertake study on a full-time basis you will enrol in 50 Credit Points in each of the main semesters (semester 1 & 2), which is equal to 100 Credit Points for the academic year.

The standard Credit Points for a single unit is 12.5. A standard full-time load is eight units in the academic year (8 x 12.5 Credit Points = 100 Credit Points).
