Study Plans

Study plans are a useful guide to help plan your enrolments each year. 

Your degree is made up of two types of courses;

  • "core" courses - essential subjects that you must complete at each year level in order to obtain your degree, and
  • "elective" courses - subjects that you have the freedom to choose to allow you to explore your interests in other areas beyond the scope of your chosen degree.

Different degrees have different numbers of core and electives subjects. Your key to understanding which subjects you need to enrol in and which you have the freedom to choose is your Study Plan.

Every degree (and every major) has a dedicated Study Plan which is your best guide to understanding the requirements of your program.

Courses that you take at Level I (first year) give you the knowledge and skills to allow you to take more advanced courses at Level II and III. It is very important to understand which courses you need to study in your first year to set you up for the pathway that you want to take in the later years of your degree.

By taking each course in the order mapped out you will ensure that:

  • You will have gained the foundational knowledge for your advanced courses
  • You meet the all of the requirements of your degree
  • You finish your degree on time
