    If you do JAPN1001, you can apply for that to be part of your Gened (6UOC) - which also means you cant do any more gened from the Arts faculty

    where can i find the credit points for each subject?

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Just got an email about the three safety science gen-eds via web mode.

    GENS8003 Work and Safety
    GENS8004 Ergonomics, Productivity and Safety
    GENS8005 Environmental Management in the Workplace

    Has anyone done one of these? Is it worth doing one or two in winter & having less work in S2?


    Thanks.

    If youre in CSE make sure you read over this before you choose: http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/undergrad/current/gened.html

    I almost made the mistake of choosing a science gened when im not allowed to choose any at all.

    So you can't get HD's in these can you you :| Only passes and yet it still counts towards your WAM?

    People with combined degees don't have to do any geneds.

    Geneds are still graded like normal subjects and contribute to your WAM.

    Q:
    is it true you can only do 1 GENEd course in the winter session?

    Not true, im combined and have to do 6 uoc of geneds. It depends on how similar the two degrees you're doing are.

    You can do as many as you can fit. Usually you can only fit one in winter and 2 (or more) in summer.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    I'm doing a combined degree, advance sci and arts. I assume I don't have to do any geneds, but as part of adv sci there'sa 3 uoc course in second semester where people would normally take a gen ed as well the like even it out 24uoc. Seeing as I dont HAVE to do them, can I choose them from any faculty (like arts or science) and can they count towards like my arts/science electives?

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Does anyone here know any geneds that are easy in terms of assessment to achieve a high distinction? I need to boost my WAM slightly over the next couple of sessions and I have 6UOC for geneds.

    Hey

    For the upcoming winter session, I choose to a web-based Gen Edu GENS8003 - Work and Safety.

    I just wanted to know if anyone has done it before, whats the work load and what are the assessments tasks like.

    Thanks

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Hi,

    For a couple of COFA general edu. courses I was asked to verify enrollment but it doesn't allow me as I keep getting this message:

    "Could not add an entry to the database at this time. Please try again later."

    Does anyone know why?? Or I can't do that till S2 starts?

    Thanks
