Substitute Courses

Students completing two modules that contain "common courses" must adhere to the Common Course Policy.  If more than 1.0 common course exists, any additional common course must be replaced by a "substitute course". 

Select the module(s) below to see a list of pre-approved substitute courses that can replace additional common courses for modules offered by that department:

Did you know???

That Neuroscience 2000 can now be used as a substitute course for the IMS modules, as well as the Major and Minor in Medical Sciences?
