How to use this section
What is in this section
This section is an index of courses and specialisations. It is
important to understand the difference.
What is a ‘course’?
A course is a program of study that leads to a qualification (a
degree or a diploma). It is made up of units of study, which are
usually one semester in length.
All courses specify the number of units required and the
minimum time you can take to complete them. Some courses
(such as medicine) define exactly which units you must do and in
what order. Most, however, allow choice, including choice of
What is a ‘specialisation’?
Sometimes you need to choose a specialisation as well as a
course. You have to do this before you apply in some cases. In
engineering, for example, you usually have to decide whether to
apply for chemical, electronic, civil or some other kind of
Sometimes you have to decide after you have been
accepted. When you get into ‘science’ or ‘arts’, for example, you
have to decide on the science or arts subjects in which you want
to specialise. Information sessions are usually held to help you
sort through your options.
Sometimes you can make up your mind as you go along,
meaning you don’t have to choose until you have completed the
first semester of study, the first year or more.
Even if you have a bit more time to decide, it’s a good idea to
start thinking hard about specialisations as well as courses before
you take the plunge. There is no point getting into a science
course and then turning up on day one to enrol in zoology only to
find that the course doesn't offer a zoology specialisation.
What this section can do for you
The A–Z list is designed to help you find all the options while
there’s still time to choose.
You can use this section to:
1. find where courses are offered
2. find where specialisations are offered
3. find out which courses and specialisations lead to which
4. find related courses and specialisations (through the cross-
5. get an overview of the entire menu.
Bear in mind that some of the items on the list represent
whole courses, while others are the names of specialisations
within the courses. For example, Asian studies might be an entire
degree course or it could be a specialisation within the bachelor
of arts; you can find out which is which by turning to the page
numbers listed to next to each item.
