Course Planning

At the Office for Environmental Programs you will be closely guided through the process of selecting subjects, helping you develop a plan that fits with your academic background, interests and career objectives.

Once you have accepted your offer you will be given access to a Course Planning module on the LMS which helps you think through the process.

All new students have the opportunity to attend an online course planning information session that guides you through the process of planning your study.

Before you finalise your study plan you will meet with one of our academic advisors - all specialists in multidisciplinary education – to discuss your subject selection. As you progress through the program, there are other opportunities for you to discuss subject selection with your advisor. They can also help you with planning a research project, deciding whether an internship or exchange is right for you and provide input into your subject choices.

Guide to using the course planning module

Most law subjects require students to submit an application before enrolment is approved.  Please note that this is not required for the following subjects:

What our students say about the course planning process:

“Course planning was mostly helpful in providing the framework required to start thinking about the degree as a whole, and subjects as components. It was also very reassuring to know this was being reviewed and I could chat to someone about it”

“The course planning module was useful in that it forced me to think carefully about planning my course over the 2 years of study.  Of particular usefulness was the concept of obtaining relevant skills and knowledge before undertaking the capstone research subject in year two”.

“Putting our study into the context of 'finding a job' was helpful, as I could have easily gotten carried away with the breadth of subjects offered.”

Academic Advice

Current students may also wish to see an OEP Academic Advisor during their study to discuss progress, or other matters such as taking a research project.

To book an appointment with an Academic Advisor, please use the online Student Advising System and select Faculty academic advice> Office for Environmental Programs.
