Example Study Plan – Sam

Sam has completed an undergraduate degree in Physics, but the level is below that of a UWA degree.  Sam has taken no astronomy or astrophysics units, and has no programming experience in a language such as python, R, C, or FORTRAN.    Sam therefore takes 4 conversion units.  Sam requires more background training before starting the Research Proposal unit, and so this is taken in the third semester of study.
