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.
