Course subject codes

Course identifiers

Courses are identified by a four-letter subject code and a three-digit number. The four letters can represent subject, major, specialisation, qualification or one of the University's schools. The first digit represents the level of the course. The 000-level range is used for pre-degree level courses; 100-level courses are first-year or introductory courses; 200-level and 300-level courses represent advanced-level undergraduate courses; honours and masters courses are 400- and 500-level; PhD courses are 600-level; and the 800-level range is used for diploma courses.
