What is an elective unit?

Elective units are "free choice" units that some courses have built into their structure. Elective units allow you to study a unit from any school or department to earn credit towards your degree. In order to take a unit as an elective, you still need to meet the pre-requisite requirements and the conditions of the unit. Some units have pre-requisites that restrict their undertaking to specific courses and cannot be studied outside of that course. 

You can find more information on the different types of units that make up a course here. You can find your course structure in the University handbook.
