How to choose your courses

Some programmes have set courses that all students study in their first year, while other programmes provide lots of choices throughout the degree. Choosing your courses and planning a major, minor or specialisation means considering which subjects you are most interested in and choosing your first year courses wisely.

Plan past your first year of study


Think about your future study plans when choosing your first year courses, as most advanced courses have prerequisites. This means you will need to have passed certain lower level courses before you can be admitted into higher level courses in the same subject. Some degrees are flexible - if you are unhappy with your choices you have the opportunity to change your mind before you enrol in your second year.
