Course Outlines

What is a course outline?

Course outlines are critical resources that will help you understand each course: its aims, learning outcomes, course requirements and assessment criteria.

Why is it useful?

Many students use their course outlines to inform decisions about course choices and to manage their combined course workloads throughout the Semester.

Please note:
all course outlines below are subject to minor changes until the actual commencement of your course. You will be directed to the final version by your course convenor, lecturer or tutor. Course information will be uploaded to your Moodle account by your tutor before your course starts so it is a good idea to check Moodle regularly.
