Postgraduate

Using the Enrolment Planner

The Enrolment Planner will prepare you for an easier enrolment day. Once you have gone through the steps and chosen your units of study, you will be directed to print out your choices and bring them along to your enrolment, where you will formally accept your offer and complete the enrolment process.

The academic year

Before you continue, we would like briefly to explain how the academic year works at the University of Sydney.

The year is organised into two main sessions:

  • Semester One begins in March and ends in June
  • Semester Two begins in July and ends in November


Some units of study are offered in intensive sessions during Semester One or Semester Two. There are also Summer and Winter sessions that occur between the two main sessions where a limited number of units of study are available. Postgraduate students often manage their study load by taking units of study in Summer or Winter School.

You can find out more about sessions and definitions for full-time and part-time study in the Glossary.

When you come to your enrolment day, you will make choices for units of study offered in Semesters One and Two for 2014. Summer and Winter School enrolment occurs at other times of the year and you will be notified of this.

Varying your enrolment

Remember, the choices you make today are not set in stone. You may receive additional support or advice that leads to you wishing to change your enrolment, or you may simply change your mind. All of this is okay, as you can change your enrolment before classes commence.

You can also vary your enrolment after classes commence but remember, the general rule is that you cannot add a unit after the end of the second week of semester and you can’t withdraw from a unit after the Census Date. Please refer to the glossary for information about Census Dates. We’ll send you and email post enrolment explaining how you can vary your enrolment should you so wish.
