Getting started on your MSc

In this essential session you’ll learn how to understand your Semester 1 timetable and other useful information to help you manage your first few weeks of study. The MSc team will be available to answer any questions you have as you settle into your course.

Unit choices talks

Most of our master's courses include both compulsory and optional units. Other universities sometimes call them 'modules'.

You will have to make your option choices for semester 1 and semester 2 before semester 1 teaching starts. The system for choosing units online will be available from 10.15am on Thursday 30 September 2021 to 5.00pm on Tuesday 5 October 2021.

You should think about your unit choices before Welcome Week.

To help you understand the optional units, you will need to attend the unit choices talks (if your course includes optional units). We will provide more information before the talk.
