Course Planning

Course planning for new students

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

Within the program, students have access to over 200 subjects across all Faculties and Schools at The University of Melbourne. To help you achieve the best of your time at the OEP all students are provided with individual course planning assistance. This helps you think purposefully about your choices and ensure that you select subjects that meet your learning and career goals.

Students joining the OEP in Semester 1, 2019 will receive an email between mid December and mid January with further details on how to undertake their course planning steps. This will be sent to your University of Melbourne student email account. If you are not able to access this account, please follow the steps below. (Please note that new students will not be able to access the Course Planning Module, or the Student Booking System until approximately December 17, 2018.)
