Enrolment Pattern

Because of the flexibility of the course requirements, there is no prescribed enrolment pattern. Students may choose the order in which they undertake subjects, depending upon the availability of subjects and the meeting of any prerequisites or assumed knowledge. Students are encouraged to enrol in core subjects in the initial sessions and complete as many of these as possible before selecting specialisation subjects.

Professional Accreditation

The Australian Computer Society (ACS) accredits courses in Information Technology to verify that they meet professional standards in terms of content, staff skills, teaching facility and quality assurance. The Master of Information Technology (with specialisations) is fully accredited at the Professional level by the ACS until 2022 provided at least one specialisation is completed.
