Course FAQ

How many hours per week do I need to dedicate to course learning?

The three 12 credit point units (POM5101, POM5102, POM5103) are quite intensive and we suggest 20 to 24 hours per week of study commitment for each unit to view the lectures, complete the reading packages and dedication to research in answering the course work (essays, group discussions and short answer questions).


The two 6 credit point units (POM5105, POM5106) are less intensive but still require a suggested minimum of 10 to 15 hours study dedication for each unit.

Can I take leave during the course?

Intermission (study leave) can be granted for up to 12 months (i.e. two semesters either taken together or separately) during the duration of your study. An Intermission Application Form will need to be completed and sent to the course administrator.

When does access to the Online course material open and close?

Enrolled students receive a Welcome Package to their Monash student email account one week prior to the official semester start date. Unit content is released on a weekly basis (as appropriate) and assessment tasks have a set release date and due date. Content is unable to be released outside of this period. If you have planned leave during the semester you will need to manage your study commitments as required.


For all unit’s, access to the unit material/web closes immediately after the end of the semester.
