Course Structure

These course rules and specifications apply to students commencing the BFA(Hons) in 2012. For students who commenced prior to 2012, the applicable course rules are those from the year of commencement: i.e. students who commenced in 2010 should refer to the 2010 Handbook.

A candidate may not enrol in a joint honours course unless permitted to do so by the Faculty on the recommendation of the heads of the two Schools concerned. Candidates must either have passed the prerequisite units prescribed in the schedule for both of the proposed disciplines or have otherwise satisfied the heads of the two Schools that they are sufficiently qualified to undertake the joint course.
