Extra intakes in 2018

In 2018, Charles Sturt University and IT Masters will be introducing extra student intakes. As well as the three regular sessions, additional sessions will be commencing in January, May and August. This will mean that there will be six opportunities to start online study in 2018, adding more flexibility for students – you can start whenever you are ready.

You can start in any of the six intakes, with subjects on offer from across all of our degrees. 

When are the new sessions?

The new sessions will start on 8 January, 21 May and 27 August 2018.

I’m a current student, can I enrol in these extra sessions?

The six session pilot is currently limited to new students only. If the pilot continues beyond 2018, current students may be able to enrol in the extra sessions.

Can I fast-track my course by studying in these extra sessions?

It is possible to complete your course faster by taking subjects in the new sessions, but there may be some overlap between pilot sessions and regular sessions if you choose to enrol in two sessions at once. We recommend that every student in the pilot sessions creates an individual enrolment plan with IT Masters.

How many subjects can I take in these new sessions?

We recommend students take one subject during the pilot sessions. This is because there may be some overlap between sessions as you merge back into the main sessions.

Will the new sessions have online exams?

We are encouraging all students to take their exams online in 2018. Online exam supervision is provided by ProctorU. If you prefer or need a paper exam, we can still arrange for one to be available at an examination centres.

Will there be overlap between sessions?

Students who start in these new intakes (201815 / 201845 / 201875) will then need to take some subjects in the regular sessions (201830 / 201860 / 201890). This means that you might be taking classes from the start of one session during the end of another session. For this reason, we encourage students to take a single subject during the new sessions, and to talk to us about your course plan.
