The standard course load for full-time study is 50-60 points per semester or 100-120 points per year. Most courses are weighted 15 points and students generally take four courses per semester. Information on specific creditpoints is available in our course catalogue www.auckland.ac.nz/ssocourseadvice
Course descriptions and schedules are published in early November for the subsequent year (Semesters One and Two). Brief course descriptions as well as information on course prerequisites and restrictions are available in our course catalogue www.auckland.ac.nz/ssocourseadvice. For more detailed course descriptions, please refer to relevant faculty websites.
Students starting a new programme at the University of Auckland (including exchange students) will be automatically enrolled in the online Academic Integrity Course (ACADINT A01). This is a no-credit bearing course designed to increase student knowledge of academic integrity, university rules relating to academic conduct, and the identification and consequences of academic misconduct. Students are required to complete this course with 6 out 6 in all modules to pass. Failure to complete the course will result in a Did Not Complete (DNC) grade on the official University of Auckland academic transcript.
Exchange students who have completed at least four (4) semesters of law study are able to enrol, subject to spaces being available, in our 400-level undergraduate elective courses (described in detail on pp 24-72 of the Course Descriptions booklet). Please note that some of these courses have prerequisites, usually comprising the foundational first and second-year law courses. It is usually the case that exchange students will have completed equivalent foundational courses at their own institutions, so this is generally not a barrier, although some advanced courses may require specific prior knowledge.
Exchange students who have completed at least six (6) semesters of law study may be able to enrol, subject to space being available, in our 700-level postgraduate courses. Please note that class-sizes are limited to 25 students in these courses (described in the Postgraduate Law Courses document).
