Congratulations and welcome to UNSW Aviation!

Once you have successfully accepted your offer, the next step is to enrol in the courses (commonly known as subjects) for the relevant semester.

You can only enrol in one semester at a time. So while you may have an enrolment plan for the entire program, you only need to enrol in the current semester.

This section will provide some guidance to help you select your course(s), and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jamie Lim, Postgraduate Programs Coordinator.

Now, please click the program you are enrolled in. The link will take you to the relevant section:

Graduate Diploma in Advanced Flying - 5545

You need to complete a total of 48 Units of Credit (UoC) including any recognition for prior learning awarded as credit.

These 48 UoC consists of:

  • 24 UoC compulsory courses (conducted at our Flying Operations Unit at Bankstown Airport)
  • 24 UoC prescribed Aviation elective courses (conducted online via Moodle )

In your first semester, you can start the program by enrolling in just the compulsory course(s) OR the elective course(s) OR both (e.g. one compulsory and one elective). You must enrol in at least one course (minimum 6 UoC) per semester. The maximum study load is 24 UoC per semester.

The compulsory courses are:

  • AVIF5915 Airline Pilot Multi-Crew Coordination (12 UoC)
  • AVIF5916 Aeroplane Systems for Airline Pilots (12 UoC)

You can enrol in both courses in the same semester. If you just want to enrol in one, you must do AVIF5915 first. Enrolment of these courses cannot be done online by yourself via myUNSW. To enrol, please complete the internal enrolment form and return it to Jamie Lim at aviam@unsw.edu.au. After your enrolment is processed, our FOU will contact you about the training schedule.

There are five available prescribed Aviation elective courses listed below. Each is worth 6 UoC, and you can choose any four from the list to form the required 24 UoC. If you have been granted some credit, the UoC requirement is reduced. You can enrol in the elective courses yourself online via myUNSW.
