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.
