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 2, 2021 will receive an email in mid June 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 contact Stop 1. (Please note that new students will not be able to access the Course Planning Module or the Student Booking System until after they receive this email)

**New students will not be able to enrol in subjects until they have completed the below steps:

  1. Accept your offer and complete the enrolment steps, including setting up a University of Melbourne email address. Please note that you must have satisfied all your offer conditions before you can do this.
  2. Log in to the Student Booking System (SBS) and book your personal Course Planning Appointment (see below for details).
  3. Complete the online course planning module which will be available via the Learning Management System (Canvas LMS). See the LMS Course Planning Guide for assistance.
