Choosing courses

Follow your program plan to choose courses and complete your degree without problems. Your program plan will tell you in what order, and in which year and semester you should enrol in particular courses.  Check back here before you enrol each semester to see if your program plan has changed to ensure that you are choosing courses that count towards graduation.

UQ has updated programs and courses across the board with effect from this year, 2021. If you are a continuing student, check our advice about 2021 changes to see how you may be affected.

Undergraduate students, complete a progression check mid-late in your program to ensure that you can graduate as expected.

How to plan your program

To plan your program, look up the courses and requirements for it, click through to the core courses you need to do and the elective courses you are interested in to work out which semester they are offered, and whether they require pre-requisites or have restrictions.  If a pre-requisite course is required, plan to do it before the more advanced one.

If you have any questions, contact the BEL Student Centre for help.
