We’re just as surprised as you are about how early class registrations are this semester. The exam period isn’t even over yet!
Unlike other semesters, class registrations now open at different times depending on your subjects’ levels.
But before you can do your timetable, you need to search for subjects/enrol into subjects. If you need a refresher on how to do just that, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to enrol into subjects.
Search for subjects on the handbook
If you don’t know what subjects to take, I find it easiest to look at your degree’s entry in the handbook. Information about what subjects you need to take for your degree/major should be there.
For example – I (as a Science student doing the new Melbourne degree) would go to ‘All New Generation Courses’ on the handbook home page, then go to ‘Bachelor of Science’. If you scroll down, you’ll find the information there.
If you are still unclear about what subjects you need to take, don’t worry – you are not alone. It can be really confusing to get your head around. Speak to the staff at your student centre and they should be able to help.
Log into the portal and click on ‘My study plan’
Once you know what subjects you’re doing, you want to head to your study plan.
That button on the homepage is a shortcut that takes you straight to your study plan. If for some reason the home page is down, here is the longer way: Go to the ‘Student Admin’ tab on the top, click on ‘Go to my enrolment’, then click on ‘View my study plan/enrol in subjects’.
And you should end up with a screen that looks something like this.
If you scroll down, there should be options in the different boxes where you can enrol your subject in. This brings us to the next question – how do you know which box to enrol your subject in?
The study plan can be quite overwhelming, but if you minimise the tabs – it’s not as scary as it looks and this makes better sense.
Let’s say I want to enrol into BIOL10005. This is considered as a Level 1 Science subject because the first number of the subject code is 1. In this instance, you’ll want to enrol that subject under the ‘Science Level 1’ of the study plan above.
Using another example – let’s say I want to enrol in EDUC20074: Positive Communities and Organisation. We know from the handbook that it’s a breadth subject, and as the first number of the subject code is a 2, it’s a Level 2 subject.
Scroll down your study plan to look where you can enrol this Level 2 breadth subject.
There are a number of places where you put that subject in (Breath Level 1-3, Breadth Level 2-3, or Science and Breadth).
Find an empty spot, and click ‘choose’.
Then enter your subject code and click the search button.
If your subject isn’t showing up when you do this, try entering parts of the subject code. For example, instead of putting ‘EDUC20074’, try ‘EDUC’ and see how you go. Or try doing a blank search where you leave the subject code field empty, and just click the search button.
If you still can’t locate your subject here, then you’ll need to speak to your student centre.
Click on ‘choose and save this selection’
Click the check box, and click ‘continue to enrol’
If you have any issues with enrolling into subjects, pay your student centre a visit or get in touch with 13 MELB before it gets super busy.
