2017 Enrolment Program Structure

To graduate you must complete the following:

  Year One of Program
 
AND  Year Two of Program
 
AND  Year Three of Program
 
AND  (Biological Science Major
 
OR  Biotechnology Major
 
OR  Applied Chemistry Major
 
OR  Environmental Science Major
 
OR  Food Science Major
 
OR  Physics Major
 )
AND  Science Options
 

The Applied Sciences program allows you to select your science degree by choosing courses from biology; chemistry; physics; environmental science; food science and related areas. Your selection from a set of core courses will define your ‘major’ area of study. This extends over the three years of the degree program. You also have a wide selection of electives to supplement your major or your interest in other areas of science.

Timetabling

The majority of Higher Education programs use the Student Timetabling System (STS). Go to the Student Timetabling System web page to access timetabling information.

If your program is taught by a Vocational Education (VE) school then please go to the Vocational Education timetabling website.

Material fees

Some courses and programs have material fees (fees for field trips, goods or services) associated with them. In most cases these charges are not compulsory, but are levied by the teaching school for materials they purchase on your behalf for use in your studies. Go to the Material Fees web page to check the material fees for your program and courses.

Enrolment

For more information about enrolment at RMIT University, please go to the Enrolment home page.

*Semester 1 classes generally commence in February and Semester 2 classes generally commence in July. Please contact your school for more information about specific class start days.

Policies

For more information about other RMIT University policies, please go to the Policies web site.

Student Electives

University Electives are available to Undergraduate students, and in selected Postgraduate programs.

Information about University Elective courses at RMIT is available on the University Electives web site.
