Notes:

  1. A selection of the category (d) Core courses are planned to fit with the required second year courses, and a selection of the category (c) Core courses are planned to fit with the required third year courses.
  2. It should be noted that the courses are shown in the semesters in which they are usually offered. In certain years, it may be necessary to offer a particular course in a different semester to that shown.
  3. The suggested program sequence shown above is for guidance and students may alter the order in which courses are taken. However, students should be aware that many courses have one or more prerequisites and these limit the possible variations in programs. Also, it is intended that the courses shown will, whenever possible, be timetabled to fit. Students are not guaranteed that other arrangements will be practicable.
