Attendance information

The Bachelor of Aviation is offered only in full-time mode. Courses are offered on-campus at the Nathan campus although some courses may be offered in external mode or via the internet (fully online) with no requirements for on-campus attendance.

As a full-time student you will generally attend 15-20 hours of scheduled classes per week throughout the trimester. Classes may be scheduled during the day and evening throughout the week. The Bachelor of Aviation includes some core and optional courses which may be scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 9am and 4pm and it is expected that if you enrol in these courses as an on-campus student you will be available to attend.

If you are an International student on a student visa, you must ensure that you enrol in a way that will allow you to complete your enrolment within the expected program duration as stated on your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).
