Major Course Substitution

3529 - Commerce / Science

For any majors that require ECON1202, MATH1011/MATH1031/MATH1131/MATH1141/MATH1151 completed under the Science component will act as a substitute so in these cases a student should not do ECON1202 but instead complete another Major elective to meet the 48UOC requirement.

Students should select the MATH or PSYC course required for their Science major. If a Science major does not require a MATH or PSYC course (for example the Pathology and Vision Science majors) or if the Science major does not require one of the statistics courses listed above, students should complete ECON1203. MATH and PSYC count towards Science and ECON1203 count towards Commerce. If you have completed a Science course that excludes ECON1203, then you will need to study another 6UOC of UNSW Business School elective in order to meet the 96UOC from the Business School requirement.


3502 - Commerce

Student must have completed 24 UOC before taking any level 2 courses.
Student must have completed 48 UOC before taking any level 3 courses.

Double Counting

3970 - Science

Students cannot complete a minor with the same name as their nominated major, and Level II and III courses cannot be double-counted between majors and minors. More than one minor may be completed subject to the limit on double-counting. Students must declare their minor(s) before their final term.
