Starting part-time in Trimester 2 or 3

It may be possible to start the Master of Commerce part-time in Trimester 2 or Trimester 3, depending on the availability of courses in the subject you’ve chosen.


If you are studying full-time, you can expect a workload of 40–45 hours a week for much of the year. Part-time students doing two courses per trimester must do around 24–28 hours of work a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working full-time.

You can estimate your workload by adding up the number of points you'll be doing. One point is roughly equal to 10–12 hours of work.


This 180-point programme will take you three to four trimesters of full-time study. If you’re studying part-time it usually takes six trimesters.
