Transition plan for Level 3 Courses

The old Level 3 4-credit courses listed on the left hand side of Table 3(a) will be offered for the last time in the 2018/2019 academic year. If you need one of these courses to complete your degree requirements, you should register for the old Level 3 4-credit course in the semester it is offered and attend the lectures for the equivalent 3-credit course shown on the right-hand side of Table 3(a).

You should note that none of the old Level 3 4-credit courses shown in Table 3(a) will appear on the timetable. So, you will need to follow the timetable for the equivalent 3-credit course on the right-hand side of Table 3(a).

For example, if you need INFO 3400 to complete your degree requirements, you should register for INFO 3400 in Semester 1 of the 2018/2019 academic year but attend the lectures for INFO 2603.
