Transitional Arrangements

When new courses are introduced to the curriculum, old courses may be phased out.

This page helps us to communicate the status of these changes to you and keep you updated on their progress.

Please check your School below to determine if there are any changes that will affect you.

 

Biomedical Engineering

NOTE: You will not be permitted to take DESN2000 for the Biomedical (BIOMDS) stream. However the requirements for the BE (Hons) component will depend on the specialisation chosen - consult the relevant School section in this table for details.

NOTE: Students who have already completed the Old Requirement are not permitted to complete DESN2000.

From 2018 onwards, SOLA5054 will no longer be offered and students should refer to the table below to ensure you are enrolling in the correct course(s):

NoYesSOLA4012**
NoNoSOLA4012 and SOLA5057*
YesYesNo changes

* Note – If you previously completed SOLA5057 as an elective. Recommendation – SOLA5057 is a substitution for SOLA5054, this means you have an elective left to complete.

** You will still need to complete SOLA4012, despite the current exclusion between SOLA4012 and SOLA5054. You should be able to enrol yourself via myUNSW, you may contact us if you experience any problems.
