Physics

Advice on how to plan your exchange within the Bachelor of Science

Planning your exchange: The Physics (Physics specialisation) major has several Level 2 pre-requisite subjects. The easiest time to go on exchange is in Semester 2 of Year 2 as there are fewer required subjects. Students should attempt to find equivalent subjects to PHYC20015 Special Relativity and Electromagnetism and MAST20030 Differential Equations

Students considering a Chemical Physics major may find it quite difficult to go on exchange as there are a significant number of Level 2 pre-requisite subjects.

Mapped subjects for the Physics major (all streams) include;
