Example Study Plan – AVERY

Avery has completed an undergraduate degree in Physics, but the level is below that of a UWA degree. Avery has taken no astronomy or astrophysics units, and has no programming experience in a language such as python, R, C, or FORTRAN. Avery therefore takes 4 conversion units. Avery is doing an experimental project in Gravitational Wave Astronomy and is ready to commence that in the first semester, spreading the coursework out over four semesters.
