Your undergraduate journey

First year

Your first year is your chance to explore, whether it's your chosen path, or a brand new one. Alongside compulsory subjects, you can choose from a wide variety of disciplines. You can even study overseas in your first winter break.

Second year

In second year, you'll focus by choosing your major, if you haven't already, and can also choose to follow a 'breadth track'. That's how an Arts student can qualify for the Doctor of Medicine, or a Commerce student can become an engineer.
