A Unit Set is the group of subjects which together make up an approved major sequence or specialisation.
A successfully completed major sequence or specialisation is listed on your academic transcript.
Not all courses include major sequences and/or specialisations. Instead, some courses have a prescribed set of units that must be completed to satisfy course requirements and structure.
A Major sequence is a group of related units, formally approved by the Academic Board and listed in the University Handbook under the relevant course. A successfully completed major sequence will be listed on your academic transcript.
A Specialisation is a group of related units, which are usually a further study within a particular area or field of study. These too are listed in the University Handbook under the relevant courses in which they are offered. A successfully completed specialisation may be listed on your academic transcript.
