I am dropping a course for this semester. Will this affect my full time student status? What classifies as part time study? What is the minimum course units I can take and still remain a full time student?

Part Time study means that you are enrolled in the minimum required amount of courses within your chosen programme to be considered a part time student.  In general, students studying anything between 1 to 3 courses or 15 to 45 credits per semester is classified as part time study for most of the programmes at Unitec.  According to StudyLink's criteria, anything less than 48 credits per semester or anything less than 96 credits per year.  If you are an International student, taking less than 45 credits per semester means you are studying part time, and this will impact your visa and insurance entitlements, please contact the International office before submitting your change enrolment request.
