Important information for continuing students

As a result of a major review in of the undergraduate curriculum in all disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, students who enrolled in 2013 or earlier may find that from 2014 they no longer meet the prerequisites for a unit of study that they had previously intended to enrol into.These changes also affect junior prerequisites in some subject areas including Asian Studies, International Comparative and Literary Studies, Digital Cultures, Gender Studies, Cultural Studies and Celtic Studies.

If you would like to enrol into senior units and find that you are unable to do so, you can still enrol into 2000/3000 level units under the pre-requisites found in the 2013 Handbook.
