We offer two Bachelor course types, Generalist and Specialist. To find the type of Bachelor course you will be studying, please visit the Handbook and search for your course. You'll find the course type in the information box.

Based on the course type, you can refer to the relevant section below for more enrolment information.

Generalist Bachelor Degrees

Before you can enrol, you must select your major in eStudent. A list of the available majors within your course can be found in the Handbook under the Course Structure section.

Your course will consist of a Core Zone and a Flexible Zone.

The core zone is compulsory. Within this zone, you will study essential units and units that contribute towards your major. The flexible zone is made up of free choice units. You can also choose to study a second major or a minor in your flexible zone, depending on your course.
