You will be allocated to the stream based on your selected bachelor degree and progression requirements. For example, students who will be studying Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) will be allocated to a stream where they will study mathematics and science, and a Bachelor of Creative Industries student will be learning about creative design and creative practice.
