Example Study Plan – Cam

Cam is a domestic student who completed an undergraduate degree in Physics four years ago.  Over the past four years Cam has worked as a quantitive analyst in the financial sector and is returning in Semester 1 to commence the MPhys (Astro) course.  Cam has not taken any astronomy or astrophysics units in the past, and so requires two conversion units.  Due to work and family commitments Cam will take 18 credit points (3 units) per semester over five semesters, which meets the requirement of full-time attendance for the course.
