The aggregated EFTSL value for a course of study, summed across all units of study which meet the academic requirements for the course of study.
|Element name:||Course of study load|
|Units:||Numeric, right justified, with a leading zero if needed|
|00||Non-award course, cross provider program or unit of study undertaken through Open Universities Australia|
|01 to 99||EFTSL value expressed in tenths (e.g. 4.5 is coded "45")|
Where a student is undertaking a course of study for which another course of study was a pre-requisite, then the EFTSL for the first course of study should not be included as part of the course of study load.
The value is to represent the Aggregated EFTSL for all years of the course of study, assuming that:
- the course of study is undertaken by a full-time student; and
- the student undertakes a standard program of studies.
If there are multiple entry points to the course of study, the value reported is to reflect entry at the lowest possible point (i.e. without any exemptions being granted).
