Undergraduate Education electives

Electives may be offered in off-campus learning mode (ONLINE) or on-campus (DAY) mode. Education students enrolled on any campus can select any of the electives offered from any campus.

In addition to noting general unit restrictions, students must check unit descriptions for pre-requisites listed in the handbook entry. The professional experience calendar of your elective unit may differ from the professional experience calendar of your course.

Students, please be advised that, while the Faculty will endeavour to provide comprehensive assistance and advice about unit choice, it is your responsibility to ensure that the units you select meet the regulations and requirements for your course. The Faculty does not take responsibility for errors in unit selection.

The Faculty reserves the right to cancel or reschedule classes if necessary. If the Faculty need to cancel a class for any reason, you will be sent an email to your Monash account advising you of the amendment and the need to select an alternative unit from the list.
