Important information for continuing students

The University has undergone significant curriculum reform for 2018. In this handbook you’ll find the curriculum for students commencing their degrees in 2018. If you commenced your degree earlier, you can continue to complete your degree under the rules and requirements in place at the time you commenced.

Commencing students have access to a pool of majors, minors and units of study known as “Table S” which shared across the University, and Industry and Community project units. You can find details about this shared pool and Industry and Community project units in the Interdisciplinary Studies Handbook

If you commenced study prior to 2018 you still have access to a wide range of units and majors from across the University through Table B. Table B is available in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences 2017 Handbook.

The University’s Current Student website has further details about managing the changes of the new curriculum, including how you can elect to transfer into the reformed degrees.
