Keep Studying Open Foundation in 2020

4 semesters


As you have a maximum of four semesters to complete Open Foundation, you can continue studying the program in 2020.

How to calculate your progress

Remember, to successfully complete Open Foundation you need to pass a total of 40 units made up of 4 x 10 unit courses, 2 x 20 unit courses or a combination of any of these.

Check your grades in myHub and use the following to calculate how many units you need to complete Open Foundation:

40 UNITS – TOTAL UNITS PASSED* = UNITS TO COMPLETE

*Passed units include grades P, C, D, HD, UP or EX. For more information on grade codes click here. Please note you cannot attempt a course again that you have already passed.

Any Fail (FF), Withdraw (WW) or Incomplete (I) grades do not count towards completing your program, you will need to attempt the same course again, or try a different course and pass it.

Your options to continue

Now that you have your units to complete calculated, you have two options:

  1. Complete the Open Foundation program as soon as possible* - enrol in enough courses needed for you to complete the program in Semester 1 and you could start your undergraduate degree in Semester 2 2020.
  2. Continue studying part-time* - complete Open Foundation at your pace. Keep track of what year and semester you started to make sure you can complete within the maximum time (4 semesters).

*If you started in Semester 2 2018, you must enrol in enough courses needed for you to complete the program in Semester 1 2020 or you will reach the maximum time of 4 semesters.
