Course outlines

Apart from UNSW Handbook, you should read outline of the courses you are about to study.

What are course outlines?

Course outlines are usually posted approximately one week prior to the start of term. Each outline may contain information on:

  • course coordinator and lectures
  • teaching objectives of the course
  • teaching strategies
  • expected learning outcomes
  • assessment details
  • topics covered
  • relevant resources and
  • common School information

For further information regarding a particular course, contact the relevant course coordinator.
