Flexible Study Options

Service obligations, deployments, and other related responsibilities can cause unavoidable disruption to your study plans. Our flexible study options can help you balance your study with other commitments to put you on the path to success.

Study Plans

If you will be away for long periods of time or have service commitments, it may be helpful to arrange a study plan to meet your needs, where possible. Your Program Director is the main contact for this. You can work with them to negotiate attendance alternatives and discuss how best to manage your study/work schedules. It is a good idea to also connect with your Tutors and Course Coordinators along the way.


Access Plans

An Access Plan is a confidential document which provides information about the impact of a student’s disability, impairment, mental health condition or chronic health issue on their studies. 

We encourage you to connect with UniSA Access and Inclusion Services as early as possbile, to discuss your needs and determine if you require an Access Plan. 

Your access Access Plan will:

  • document the agreed services that will be provided by Access and Inclusion, including any alternative exam arrangements if required, and
  • help you to negotiate reasonable academic adjustments with University staff.

Alternative Assessment Arrangements

We recognise that things may come up that get in the way of your study plans. It is expected that you will be proactive about managing your schedule and commitments, however there are a range of special considerations that will allow you to ask extensions for assignments, deferral (reschedule) of an exam, and options to withdraw from courses. 

Relocations and Cross-Institutional Study

If your professional commitments require you to relocate, you may be able to study subjects at another university and receive credit towards your degree. This is known as 'cross-institutional study'.
