Time: 12pm to 2pm
Where: Foyer of Science building 302

What is Modules and Majors week?

During Science Majors and Modules Week we invite you to confirm, change or discuss your study options with a Student Academic Adviser.

Towards the end of your first year of study you'll need to choose the subjects that will shape your Bachelor of Science (BSc) or Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) (BAdvSci(Hons)). You may also need to confirm which pathway you're following, if your chosen major(s) have multiple pathways.

Why is it important?

Confirming your major(s) or specialisation early ensures that you're on the right track to complete your programme on time and with the subject areas that meet your goals.

If you're unsure about which major(s) or specialisation to declare, or which module to include as part of your programme, then this is an ideal opportunity to come in and discuss your options with one of our major specialists.

This discussion will help you make an informed decision that will help to shape your future.

Frequently asked questions

I have confirmed my major/specialisation. Can I change it at a later date?

Yes, you can change your major at any point in your degree provided you are eligible.

Please note: It will not be possible to change to Biomedical Science, Food Science and Nutrition yourself in SSO, as these subjects have higher entry requirements.

If I'm still undecided do I have to make a decision this week?

No, you don’t have to make a decision, however we would encourage you to come along to have a chat.
