Students may undertake courses through external providers, such as TAFE. At Muirfield, all Year 11 students must undertake at least 12 school-based units for the first semester;  all Year 12 students must commence the year with at least 10 school-based units, unless on an approved pathways program. Requests to drop a school-based course which results in a student studying fewer than 10 school-based units in Year 12 may be made during Term 1. The decision will be at the school's discretion, with consideration given to application, behaviour and patterns of study.
