Question:

What are the different types of units?

Answer:

Pace Units: The majority of students are required to complete one PACE unit within their degree. PACE units provide an opportunity to apply your academic studies to real life situations providing you with practical experience. A PACE unit may already be included as part of your major/degree on your handbook page. This unit will be indicated with a ā€œPā€ beside it.


Electives: Most degrees require you to complete a certain number of electives, in addition to your core units, in order to complete the minimum total amount of credit points needed to graduate (as listed on your degree handbook page). This gives you flexibility in selecting which units to study. You can enrol in any unit within the university, as long as they meet the unit's prerequisites as listed in the University Handbook.
