    say I want to take BENV1042 (which is not listed there), I can't take them right? even if I do, they would not be considered gen ed would they?

    thanks so much again!
    if you go to any page on the handbook, eg the page for ARTS2041 or for MATH1241, there will be this line in the summary at the top

    Available for General Education: Yes/No
    2009: B Science (Computer Science) @ UNSW
    2008: MX1 & MX2, Eng Ext. 1 & Eng Ext. 2, Chemistry, Economics, Advanced English, Ancient History, SoR 1u.

    UNSW Handbook Course - World Wide Web in Presentation and Communication - BENV1042

    This one doesn't seem to say anything...

    so if it doesn't say anything, i'm assuming it's a no?

    It's a good question actually. I would advise you go to the Robert Webster office desk and ask who you should ask to. Last time I wanted to take a linguistics elective as a free elective I went there to ask. =) They'll let you know what electives and other courses you can take.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    actually, come to think of it, i have never seen a subject that has "available for ged ed: no", it has always been a yes. so yea, id say you can do that as a gen ed.

    but do what the person above me said, always best to ask the uni themselves to be sure

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Sorry to bump such an old thread, but I have a question about the following quote from the first post.

    Quote Originally Posted by sunny View Post

    I can't find this rule anywhere on the handbook page, but I did find this.

    Effective from Semester 2, 2008: to meet their 12 units of credit General Education requirement, students may take up to 12 units of General Education, or courses substituted for General Education, from any faculty or faculties, other than the faculty that is the authority for the program in which the student is enrolled.
    Does this overrule the previous restriction that only 6 units can be taken from a single faculty? Does anyone have more recent experience with this?

    yeah thats it.

    and to the post above, I think you can take 12 UOC from one faculty if you want now.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    For my course, I have spaces for 2 gen eds and 5 free electives. Can I do 3 gen ed courses from the same faculty?

    From memory the only rule is they have to come from a faculty other than your own.

    Also, if you do a double degree program, which consists of two degrees from two different faculties, then you don't need to do gen eds as you have already satisfied the requirement of being "diverse" as to why there are gen eds in the first place.
