Course planners

What is a course planner?

A course planner is a visual representation of the structure of your course.

Your course planner shows you:

  • how many core (compulsory) and component (or elective) units you must enrol in for each semester or teaching period
  • the recommended sequence for completing units – for example, it you’re studying a degree, your course planner provides guidance about when you need to study your major or minor units. This sequence may be amended depending on unit availability, progression, timetabling and when you commenced your course.
