All subjects which can be studied towards an award of the University are listed in a table known as the Master Schedule of Subjects.

There are three principal subject schedules, the Master Schedule of Subjects, the Schedule of Arts and Social Sciences Subjects and the Schedule of Science Subjects. When reading award requirements or choosing majors, students may be directed to select subjects from one or more of the schedules.

Subject Code
A six character subject code is followed by the credit points value of the subject, separated by a colon. The first two characters designate the discipline area and the third character the level at which the subject is studied. For example, AN2013:03 is an Anthropology subject studied at level two which is worth three credit points.

Study Period and Mode
The study period and mode of delivery are displayed. Full details of each study period are shown here.

Mode of Delivery
Indicates the mode of delivery:

  • I - Subjects offered via internal mode require regular attendance at classes over most weeks of a study period and are usually held on campus. Internal mode subjects offered during Study Period 1 or Study Period 2 are generally of 13 weeks duration.
  • B - Subjects offered via block mode require attendance at classes conducted via block teaching sessions and may be held on or off campus. For example, classes may be held from 9.00am - 5.00pm Saturday and Sunday for three consecutive weekends, or may be held three nights per week for, say, four weeks.
  • L - Subjects offered via limited attendance mode are offered via flexible delivery and require some on-campus attendance for classes. Flexible delivery may incorporate the delivery of teaching material wholly or in part via the Internet, print material or CD Rom. Practicum subjects are sometimes also recorded as limited attendance mode subjects.
  • X - Subjects offered via external mode are offered via flexible delivery and require no on-campus attendance for classes. Flexible delivery may incorporate the delivery of teaching material wholly or in part via the Internet, print material or CD Rom. (These subjects are shown under the heading "External" at the end of the Campus entries.)
