Still working it out?
If you’re not sure what path to take in your first year, you can try different areas of study.
You could study subjects as diverse as Marine Science, Sport Science, Chinese and Management. This would give you a good cross
section of subjects and help you work out what you’re best suited to and enjoy the most. Then, in your second year, you’d be in
a great position to confidently choose a major in one of these areas. The units studied in your first year will count towards your
degree and when you finish your studies, you’ll not only be job-ready but have a diverse skill set that will benefit you throughout
your career.
