    Depends on your program. Some let you do them whenever you want. If you don't care what you do it might be easy, but if theres particular gen eds you want to do it might be hard to find 4 that don't clash as well.

    It means you have already taken up the max. allowable number of units. You can only do 24 UOC per session. In some cases you can overload, but this requires special permission by the Head of School.

    Technically, you can do 27 without any issues.

    In any case, if you go to myUNSW, you can look up your permitted amount of credits that you can take in the upcomming semester. Can't quite remember where but there's not many places to look.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Hey everyone

    I'm going for a BE/BSci (Comp Sci)...will I be doing GenEd?
    http://www.handbook.unsw.edu.au/gene...onRequirements and http://www.handbook.unsw.edu.au/unde...2008/3730.html says that

    "As a general rule, students enrolled in combined undergraduate programs leading to the award of two degrees, each in a different faculty, meet their General Education requirements."

    Thing is, I have NFI what it means by meeting their GE requirements xD

    no, what it means to say is that by doing a double degree, you meet the general education requirements of doing courses outside of a given faculty....

    so, in your case, you're doing courses part of a science degree that are outside of the engineering faculty and vice versa..

    short story even shorter, you dont need to do Gened's when undergoing a double degree

    Can we do a language as part of our general education?

    I'm sorry if this has already been answered but I'm not bothered looking through the whole thread :P

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    If we are beginners at them, will the course run long enough for us to advance a fair bit? Or is it unwise to pick it up?

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Gosh, I am so confused. Do people do General Education courses during their first year? And how many units of credit is typically undertaken during the first year?

    typically, people do 24 UOC per session...

    most people are permitted to do 27 maximum... permission is needed to do 30...

    as far as i know, people dont usually do geneds in their first year... but its completely up to you whether or not you want to do your geneds ASAP to get them out of the way (most people do that so they con concentrate on their core subjects later without silly distractions)

    the uni and its schools always provide a program guide with the subjects you have to do and when to do them... usually its best to follow this order as some subjects may be need to be done before others or some can only be done in one session... but in the end, the guid is only a guide... you're free to do the subjects required in any order you want as long as you meet all the pre-requistes and whatnot

    generally http://www.handbook.unsw.edu.au/ provides a good set of guides for a persons program/degree... (look at the link Programs by Faculty) they have the information for most things.... and if it comes to it, look at the faculty website...

    - GENS4015 Brave New World: Science Fiction, Science Fact and the Future

    - GENE7801 Energy and Mineral Resources - Use or Abuse?

    - GENS3501 Metals, Ceramics, Plastics - Building the Twenty First Century

    thanks
