Monash University Handbook 2011

2011 Undergraduate Handbook change register

Authorised changes to course and areas of study entries in the handbook:
  • are recorded in the table below
  • are noted on the course or areas of study entry when it has been altered
  • supercede any previously published information in the 2011 Undergraduate Handbook.

The notes in this register must be read in conjunction with the course or area of study entry provided in the Handbook.

Courses are listed in articulation order alphabetically, although where the same change has been made to a group of courses, a course may be listed within a group, therefore more than one listing may occur for a course.
