Full-time study while on exchange or study abroad at UWA

Do I need to study full-time while I am at UWA as a Study Abroad or Exchange student?

Incoming Study Abroad and Exchange students studying at UWA are expected to enrol in a full academic load to the value of 24 credit points per semester. This will generally comprise four (4) units (subjects/modules) per semester. Most units at The University of Western Australia have a value of six (6) credit points and are one (1) semester long. 

If your home university permits, you can study 18 credit points - generally three (3) six-point units as this is still considered a full time study load for student visa purposes.
