Starting your studies

As a commencing student, you should attend Science Day 1: Course Planning and Advice (for undergraduate students) or the Graduate Welcome for information about your course and possible subject choices. Science Day 1 may be the first time you are on campus, so it is important to prepare well in advance. Before you arrive, make sure you know where the session is held and what time you need to attend. Science Day 1 sessions will provide you with information about:

  • Courses (rules, requirements and options)
  • Subjects (choosing, sequences, pre-requisites, core, breadth, electives)

Science Day 1 also provides you with an opportunity to meet University academics, professional staff and other students.
