What are credit points?
The University assigns a credit point value to each unit of study. A unit is normally worth six points (with some exceptions). A six-point unit normally represents approximately 150 hours of student workload (including contact hours, assessments, personal study, and examinations). Credit points are used to measure your course study load. The total number of credit points you have completed assists the University in calculating your course progress and completion.
