For completion of the Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Finance) students are required to complete a total of 24 units of study (300 credit points) consisting of;
Units normally carry 12.5 credit points. In each year, four units per semester (eight per year) normally constitutes a full-time load of 100 credit points and two units per semester (four per year) normally constitutes a part-time load of 50 credit points. Students holding an international student visa are required to study full-time.
Students wishing to enrol in units of study that are not a formal part of this course will be required to seek approval from the Faculty Administration Manager prior to enrolment.
- A minimum of 100 credit points must be completed at Swinburne University of Technology. This regulation must be observed in program plans that include unit exemptions; studies completed through international exchange, cross-institutional study or study abroad.
- Students will not be allowed to study more than 26 units (325 credit points) as part of the Bachelor of Commerce.
- Students are not permitted to enrol in units where they have completed other units that are deemed to be equivalent. Equivalent units cannot both be used for credit.
Careers in the Curriculum (CIC)
In addition to the above, all Swinburne undergraduate students must complete a compulsory unit of study, HBG0004 Careers in the Curriculum
. Careers in the Curriculum is an innovative unit designed to assist Swinburne students to enhance their employability and career prospects.
Careers in the Curriculum has been developed by Swinburne Careers and Employment who provide advice and feedback on completing job applications and undergoing interviews, directed at obtaining graduate employment. Careers in the Curriculum is a one semester compulsory unit usually undertaken in second year.
Students will not incur a HECS or fee debt as the cost will be met by the university as part of an initiative to enhance students' employability skills.
Students must have passed prerequisites/corequisites listed for each unit of study and must check that they have fulfilled these requirements before enrolling. Unit of study convenors must be consulted if students wish to enrol in a unit of study for which they do not have the stated requisites. Final Year Experience – Major Projects
As part of the Swinburne Model for Professional Learning, we would expect that all incoming undergraduates from 2009 will undertake 25 credit points of professionally focused final year major projects within their programs of study. Entry with advanced standing may require alternate study sequences to be undertaken. Winter and Summer Terms
The Faculty of Business and Enterprise is offering optional six-week Winter and Summer terms allowing you to complete extra study between the standard semesters. These terms are not mandatory. However, if you wish to vary your study load you may want to consider this option. Follow this link
