Student Income Support

To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.

Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.

Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.

Work-integrated learning

Students must complete a 20 credit point Work Integrated Learning course in their third year. This Work Integrated Learning course can be taken as either an Industry Affiliates Program (IAP) or team-based Industry Project modes. IAP has been designed to integrate students into the workplace through the completion of an industry based project. It is designed to benefit both the student as well as the industry partner. IAP requires both an industry professional supervisor and an academic supervisor. The maximum workplace attendance requirement will be 2.5 days a week (20 hours) over 12 weeks (i.e. 240 hours). The Industry Project option for the Work Integrated Learning course requires students to analyse, design and propose an innovative solution to a computer-based information system or how to leverage technology for an existing problem within an organisation. The School of ICT has ample projects for students to undertake.

The inclusion of work-integrated learning in this program demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.
