Many of Curtin University's courses and units can be studied externally via eLearning.

At the commencement of each study period you will receive a Plan or Unit Outline for each unit in which you are enrolled. The Plan will contain information on the assessment method of the unit.

Units may be assessed by:

  • Continuous assessment;
  • Examinations run by the teaching Schools; or
  • Centrally scheduled examinations run in the formal two week examination periods.

Student who are enrolled partially online or fully online are considered as ‘External student’ and their examination is often conducted by the use of either a:

  • Nominated Invigilator (NI), or
  • Recognised Examination Centre (REC)
