Calculating study load (EFTSL)
Study load (Equivalent Full Time Student Load) is a measurement of how much a subject is worth in a normal full-time (120 credit point) year. To calculate a study load (EFTSL) for a single subject, divide the number of credit points for the subject by 120.
For a subject worth 15 credit points:
15 divided by 120 = 0.125 study load.
The fee calculator shows the credit points and study load for your subjects.
Courses with non-standard credit points
Some courses have more or less than 120 credit points in a normal full-time year.
