Searching by Paper Code

Each paper has a unique code e.g. LEGAL106. To search by paper code you can structure your query in the following way:
The first four letters normally identify the subject which offers the paper.
The first digit indicates the level of the paper (100, 200, 300, 400, 500 or 700 level)
The following two digits represent the specific paper code.

Examples:
To search for all Chemistry papers use "CHEMY"
To search for all 200 level Chemistry papers use "CHEMY2"
To search for a specific paper code use format such as "CHEMY201"

New paper code prefixes: From 2018 all 100 and 200 level papers, and some higher papers, will use new five-letter prefixes (e.g. ENGLI replaces ENGL).

Searching by Paper Title

This lets you search for words contained within a paper's title.
Please note: no Boolean searches are accepted. If you know part of a paper's title, simply type that in and press Search.

Examples:
To search for all papers with the word "human" in the title, search for "human"
To search for all papers with the words "human development", in this order, in the title, search for "human development"


Searching by Paper Description

This lets you search for words contained within a paper's description.
Please note: no Boolean searches are accepted. If you know part of a paper's title, simply type that in and press Search.

Examples:
To search for all papers with the word "marx" in the description, search for "marx"
To search for all papers with the words "international law", in this order, in the description, search for "international law"


Searching by Subject

The advanced search lets you select a subject from a drop-down list and specify additional criteria so that, for example, you may search for all "Accounting" papers offered in Semester A.


Searching by Semester

Papers are taught over a variety of teaching periods within the year. The four main teaching periods are:

A = A Semester

The A Semester runs from February to June.

B = B Semester

The B Semester runs from July to November.

Y = Full year

Full-year papers start at the beginning of the A Semester and continue until the end of the B Semester

S = Summer School

An S indicates that the paper will be taught in the Summer School (January to February)

Sometimes papers are taught over periods other than those outlined above. These papers have a C, D, E etc. semester indicator. Normally the weeks in which these papers will be taught are detailed in the entry for a paper in the Calendar. If details aren't given, contact the Faculty or School teaching the paper for more information.

Searching by Level

Papers are taught under different levels. There are 6 options for Level searching available:

Level 0

Level 0 papers are papers also known as Foundation or Bridging papers. These papers constribute to pre-degree programmes that offer an academic foundation for students prior to enrolment in undergraduate degrees or programmes.

100 level

100 level papers are normally introductory, exposing students to the scope of the topic and its terminology and preparing them to proceed in the subject or in related subject areas.

200 level

200 level papers normally develop the theory and methodology of the topic or subject as a framework for later synthesis and evaluation of material.

300 level

300 level papers rely less on formal teaching and assessment and require greater student participation both in timetabled classes and through seminars and workshops.

400 level

400 level papers usually have a greater emphasis on critical thinking regarding the theories and models of the subject concerned.

500 level+

500 level+ papers are graduate and postgraduate level papers.


Searching by Corequisite

A corequisite is a paper which must be taken together with the paper for which the corequisite is specified.

To search for a corequisite, the format is the same as searching for a Paper Code.

Example:
If you would like to search for all papers which have the corequisite CHEM204, use the format as "CHEM204" in the corequisite search field.


Searching by Prerequisite

A prerequisite is a paper which must be passed before you may enrol in the paper for which the prerequisite is specified.

To search for a prerequisite, the format is the same as searching for a Paper Code.

Example:
If you would like to search for all papers which have the prerequisite MATH251, use the format as "MATH251" in the prerequisite search field.
