Enrolment load

When you enrol in units at Curtin you will have an enrolment load, or study load, that comprises credit points.  Typically, a unit at Curtin is worth 25 credit points, however, it does vary – you will be able to check your units and the associated credit point weighting using Curtin Malaysia eStudent.

Your enrolment study load is directly related to the course you are enrolled in.

A full-time study load for the majority of courses is:

  • 100 credits each semester
  • 75 credits each trimester

A full-time study load for the majority of our courses is equal to 75 credits or above. For more than 100 credits, please submit the Overload Enrolment Request.

Please make sure that you have received appropriate advice and/or counselling in regard to the impact of the study load on your academic and personal circumstances.

If the approval for an overload is already granted from the respective Faculty’s Head of Department, it means student has agree to accept any consequences of the overload including any failure of units due to workload or time management issues.
