Notes:

  2. Students are required to successfully complete a minimum of 144 credit points to meet the minimum requirements for the degree, with at least 48 credit points at each of 100, 200 and 300 level.
  3. Students may study more than 144cp in total and/or more than 24cp in any one semester with the permission of the Dean of Studies. Normally students would not be permitted to study more than a standard load in the first semester unless they had an ATAR (or equivalent) of 80; or in subsequent semesters an average mark of 60.
  4. Elective units of study are to be taken concurrently with the full time load and are in addition to the recommended sequence below. Some units may be offered in Summer School as intensive mode, providing the possibility for catch-up of failures or addition of elective units of study beyond the degree requirements.
