What is a trimester?
Our academic calendar up until the end of 2017 will be based on two sixteen week study periods per year, known as semesters. From 2018, an academic year (January – December) will be divided into three twelve week study periods, called ‘trimesters’.
When will trimesters commence?
Trimesters will be introduced at the start of the academic year in 2018. Trimester 1 will start on 19 Feburary; Trimester 2 on 4 June; and Trimester 3 on 17 September.
How long is the degree under the Trimester calendar?
The Bachelor of Design Arts can be undertaken in two or more years:
How will trimesters benefit students?
Our trimester calendar has a number of benefits. It allows students to set the pace of their own study (see above). Our international LCI Education partner campuses already run on a trimester system. By shifting to trimesters, students can take full advantage of our global connections and seamlessly join a trimester abroad.
Will all trimesters be compulsory?
Under our new degree design, units will be delivered across all three trimesters. Students undertaking a two year or three year degree will be required to study in all three trimesters.
How many units can I take per trimester?
Students studying a regular full-time load over three years can undertake 10 units per academic year; or accelerate their studies by taking 15 units per academic year with a fast-tracked degree over two years.
