Bachelor of Design in Architecture Transition Arrangements

In 2010, the Bachelor of Design in Architecture will have a new structure. While the curriculum ostensibly remains the same, the new structure will give greater transparency in what is being taught and bring more consistency across the degree.

As such, students re-enrolling in the program in 2010 will be engaged in different units of study than those taught in previous years. As part of the re-structure process, it was vital in the Faculty’s planning that no student should be disadvantaged by the changes.

Below are a series of tables that describe the transition arrangements for students already in the program. Please click the link below to what stage of the transition which is relevant to you. If you foresee any problems for your 2010 enrolment or require more information, please contact the Student Administration Centre. Their contact details are:

Location: the Hearth, level 2, Wilkinson Building.
