No, not all subjects are offered every trimester. If you are studying Bachelor of Business (Accounting, Hospitality & Tourism Management and Management majors), MEd / MBA, MITHM, MITHM-MBA, or MIT (Computing and Networking) then some of the core subjects will only be available in alternate trimesters.
A full study load at JCU Brisbane is 3 subjects. Undertaking an overload of 4 subjects is not recommended as there is an increased risk of failure and you would be responsible for any adverse academic consequence.
If you have a strong academic history and have successfully completed all enrolled subjects, you may be eligible to study a fourth subject. Upon release of grades please send an email from your jcu email account outlining the reasons why you wish to study an additional subject together with the subject code, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request will be considered by the Senior Associate Dean Academic.
Please note it is not possible to request an overload if you are a commencing student.
International student visa-holders must enrol in the full load (3 subjects) for each of the compulsory study periods unless they have been advised in writing by an Associate Dean to take a reduced load or they have only one or two subjects remaining to complete their course.
If you believe that you have compassionate and / or compelling circumstances as to why you cannot maintain a full load, please send an email from your jcu email account with supporting evidence to email@example.com so your request may be considered by the Senior Associate Dean Academic.
If you are studying less than the full load, regardless of the reason, you will not be eligible for a tertiary concession fare. See Translink’s Eligibility Criteria for Tertiary Concession Fares.
