Course Structure - 96 credit points

Units in this structure may no longer be available at all course locations and, where appropriate, alternative units have been provided. Students are required to satisfy the total credit point value of both the degree and the major in order to graduate; this may require that additional units are taken, either as part of the major or as General Electives. To accommodate students impacted by this change, up to 2 credit points from the total credit point value of the degree (incorporating the major) may be waived. For further information, see
