Part-Time Course Plan

The following are standard patterns of enrolment or pathways for candidates studying on a part-time basis. They take into account unit pre-requisite, co-requisite and timetabling requirements. Candidates can each year choose to study more units than the part-time pattern, but if doing so should use these standard patterns as guides as to how best structure their studies.

A six credit point unit is estimated to require a total workload of approximately 150 hours per unit (this means about 12 to 15 hours per week per unit).

Notes:
The number and combination of Prescribed Units for this Major and Elective Units in which candidates enrol each year can be varied to the suggested pattern above to take into account unit availability.
Candidates undertaking a 2nd Major as part of their program of study may need to substitute the units for their 2nd Major in first year in place of a number of 100-level Elective Units and will need to complete the Prescribed and/or Listed Units in place of a number of Elective Units in Yrs 2 and 3.
Candidates are advised that MTHS120 assumes a knowledge of HSC Mathematics or equivalent.
Candidates undertaking a Minor as part of their program of study will need to substitute Prescribed Units in place of a number of Listed Units from their Major in Yrs 2 and 3.

Where available students may undertake units in Trimester 3.
