Timetables are provided during O-Week. You will be provided with an individual, detailed timetable at orientation. The delivery of timetables is dependent on a number of factors, particularly where students collaborate across cohorts and are split into different workshops and ensembles. Music Performance and Music Production are most subject to change due to ensemble adjustments in the first few weeks.
All students should bring a notebook and pens. You are welcome to bring laptops to classes to take notes.
