Suggested subjects for your first session

There’s a lot to think about when starting a new course. To help simplify things, our enrolment guide recommends a list of units to take in your first session.

The guide is a suggestion only. You’re free to enrol in something else if you wish – just ensure you choose units from the Macquarie University Handbook for the degree you are studying.
