Before you can select your units and enrol, it’s important to understand your course's structure. Take some time to explore the UWA Handbook and put together your study plan.
In this step you can:
- learn about your majors and units in the Handbook
- plan your broadening units and elective units
- create your first-year study plan
Learn about elective and broadening units
Once you've had a look at the core units for your major, take some time to explore the broadening unit and elective unit options. You can choose units from any undergraduate degree, as long as you satisfy the unit rules and the units fit into your study plan. The number of electives you can take depend on the major or majors you choose.
Create your study plan
When you have an idea of the units you'd like to study, it’s time to create your study plan.
There are sample study plans available in the Handbook to help you create your own or you can download a sample study plan and checklist to help plan your choices.
When putting your study plan together, consider the following:
- Unit rules – Are there any prerequisites you need to have satisfied or any previous study you must have completed?
- Course rules – How many units of each level will you need to study in order to complete a major in your course?
- Some courses have a prescribed study plan you must follow
