Hello all,

I am looking at a part-time degree course (BaIT), I have some questions if anyone here can answer.

"Classes delivered by UOW academics are conducted in an intensive mode – a continuous block of seven days for each module, and occasionally will be held on Saturday.

Students typically study two modules per term. Each year comprises of 4 terms."

1. Does that means each module is only 7 days long?
2. A students typically need to attend 14 days of classes within a 3 months term?

"The fees payable for each semester is dependent on the number of subjects undertaken."
3. How many terms are each semester?
4. Does that mean we are allowed to take more than 2 modules per term?

Thanks anyone in advance for replying.

Not sure how much things has changed since I left but ...


Intensive is only for year 3 module where the lecturer comes from Australia, so it's 6 days a week for 1 or 2 weeks? Think 2. Then the rest of the semester is tutorial by local lecturer.

1 semester 2 module 3 months.

Not sure if can take more than 2 per semester. Even if u can handle, your time table probably will be problem too.

Only exception is year 3 when u take final year project and take 2 other modules.

Thanks for the response @BlackCube. So what is the schedule like for the tutorials with the local lecturers?

Also, how is this degree compared to degree offered by let's say Kaplan's University of Murdoch Ba Com Sci?

I can't recall without looking back at my notes. If I rmb, I will check out later and update.

But I think should be 3 times per week? No weekend though for tutorial. I have no idea how does it compare cause I never research on Kaplan which personally I think it's not good. I only compare to Adelaide.

Think both uow and Adelaide is comparable but heard Adelaide more intensive so I chose uow for part time.

Anyone know what happens if I fail one of the modules? Not much chance of reassessment test since I flunked it, I know need retake but when would the module be taken again? So for that particular seems would only take that module and nothing else? Would my cohort peers also graduate one batch faster than me due to this?

By retake what does it mean? We usually take 2 modules each seem so when I retake that particular mod, I will only need to go for that mod's lesson? And ant idea on when will next mod window usually be? As for cohort,will I then be placed in the another cohort and lag behind my current friend's cohort by 1 semester?

If you get supplementary exam means you got a chance not to retake the module, but if you didn't means you will be late by one semester.

Hello, is DSS/ Big data hard to cope for someone with no IT background? And how’s the timetable like and are lessons very fast-paced? Just worried that the learning curve will be v steep especially at the start:/
