UNSW Arts, Design & Architecture sample programs provide an example of how you could structure your degree.

Sample programs have been developed for degrees where courses must be completed sequentially (or in specific terms) and demonstrate a pathway that will allow you to complete the degree within its standard full-time duration, they can assist you to plan your enrolment alongside the UNSW Handbook.

Generally, you will need to follow the sample program from the year in which you started your studies. 

Please contact the Nucleus Student Hub with any questions about how to structure your degree.
