Additional Information

The value must represent the aggregated EFTSL for all years of the course of study, assuming that:

  • the course of study is undertaken by a full-time student; and
  • the student undertakes a standard program of studies.

If there are multiple entry points to the course of study, the value reported must reflect entry at the lowest possible point (i.e. without any exemptions being granted).

Where a student is undertaking a course of study for which another course of study was a pre-requisite, then the EFTSL for the first course of study should not be included as part of the course of study load.
