    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Since this course isn't offered in S1, and the class times match what myUNSW has to say I'm tempted to say this is right, I'd still check with the lic/school office though.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    You can't replace your gen ed units with ANY courses... Only certain 6 uoc courses (like 6 uoc language courses). And they can't be from your faculty any since you can only do 3 uoc from Fac of Engineering.

    you should do some geneds while youve got a chance to do something completely different to your degree. i did mine this semester and they were awesome.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    You can substitute up to 6UOC of mainstream courses as a general education, pending approval from your program authority.

    If it is approved, just remember that it excludes you from doing any more General Education Courses from that faculty.

    So to summarise:
    • 12UOC of General Education
    • Maximum of 3UOC from your "home" faculty (exception is; FCE students cannot do any FCE General Education courses)
    • Maximum of 6UOC from any one faculty
    • Maximum of 6UOC can be substituted from mainstream courses (pending approval)


    Mainstream courses must meet the general education objectives to be substituted. These general education objectives can be found on the Handbook, or as shown below:
    Objectives of the General Education Program
    - The following objectives were approved by the Council of the University in December 1994 and with some minor changes in 2005:
    - To provide a learning environment in which students acquire, develop, and deploy skills of rational thought and critical analysis.
    - To enable students to evaluate arguments and information.
    - To empower students to systematically challenge received traditions of knowledge, beliefs and values.
    - To enable students to acquire skills and competencies, including appropriate written and spoken communication skills.
    - To ensure that students examine the purposes and consequences of their education and experience at University, and to foster acceptance of professional and ethical action and the social responsibility of graduates.
    - To foster among students the competence and the confidence to contribute creatively and responsibly to the development of their society.
    - To provide structured opportunities for students from disparate disciplines to interact cooperatively within a learning situation.
    - To provide opportunities for students to explore discipline and paradigm bases other than those of their professional or major disciplinary specialisation through non-specialist courses offered in those other areas.
    - To provide an environment in which students are able to experience the benefits of moving beyond the knowledge boundaries of a single discipline and explore cross and interdisciplinary connections, and cross-cultural contexts.
    - To provide a learning environment and teaching methodology in which students can bring the approaches of a number of disciplines to bear on a complex problem or issue.
    For your information, pretty much any languages can be substituted as general education subjects. Some subjects such as Accounting 1A have not been allowed to be substituted - and based on that precedent, expect the same in the future.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    I know commerce students arent allowed to do geneds until they have completed 48UOC...but what happens if you want to substitute a course you did in first year towards your gened requirement, is that allowed?

    You can do geneds whenever you want, they can't stop you from enrolling. The reason they give template guides to degrees and when to do things, is people for the most part can't figure out a sensible format to do themselves.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Yeah, you don't really need to listen to what the handbook says. If you head onto myUNSW, you can enroll into any Gen Ed Course (provided that the gen ed course you chose had prereqs).

    The best way to be sure is to call your school's Admin office + check up with Gen Ed.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Has anybody done GENE8000 Spreadsheet and Database Applications?
    If so, could you please tell me how hard the 70% final exam was and what format? This will help me in deciding whether to enrol in this course or not.

    Thanks in advance

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Im wondering if its possible to do a language subject like SPAN1001 for my gen ed. Would I need approval from my faculty or can I enrol in it straight away.
    The subject is 6 units of credit which completes my gen ed requirements for the upcoming semester, or would it be best to choose one of the specifically made gen ed subjects GEN****.
    Oh and by the way

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    you can do it as long as your 6 other gened units do not come from arts faculty

    from my understanding you cannot do any from commerce, and engineering will let you take 3uoc from engo geneds

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Yes any Language OR College of Fine Arts courses can be substituted for 6 UOC worth of General Education. You must request for a Gen Ed transfer from your Program/School Authority.

    However, you can only do a max of 6 UOC from 1 faculty for Gen Eds.
