On admission to the university each student is given a study plan. The study plan is a list of the subjects that must be completed in order to qualify for the course award. As well as compulsory or core subjects, the study plan may include lists of subjects from which a specified number of credit points must be selected. Some courses allow students to choose a specific learning pathway. A pathway may require students to choose one or more majors or sub-majors.
The study plan is available through My Student Admin. Any choices, in the form of option selection or pathway specification, can be made online, although in some cases faculty approval is required. The point at which choices need to be made, and the extent to which choices are reversible, depends on the course.
