Accreditation with Australian Qualification Framework
All KOI courses qualify under the Australian Qualification Framework, a national policy that is recognised both in Australia and internationally, which regulates qualifications under the Australian education and training system. This means that KOI is identified as providing its students with recognised quality education for the courses on offer.
The Course Overview – can be used to view the course structure and sequence in which subjects should be studied. All subjects named in the Course Overviews are core subjects and must be studied to satisfy the requirements of the particular award.
The first two trimesters of the Master of Information Technology provide the underpinning knowledge and skills needed to successfully attempt the higher level subjects in the remaining trimesters.
The subjects in shaded boxes must be studied in the order they are presented as they provide pre-requisite knowledge for other subjects. The remaining subjects (core and elective) have a recommended trimester, but may be studied in other available trimester slots to suit individual student preferences, provided pre-requisites have been completed.
Students may choose any elective subjects from the list following the Course Overview, provided the subject is offered in the trimester they wish to study it and they have met the relevant pre-requisites.
