RECOMMENDED SCHOOL SUBJECTS

CHOOSING YOUR SCHOOL SUBJECTS Most subjects at University can be started from an introductory level. Depending on what you want to study, you may need to take recommended subjects at school in preparation for particular courses or degrees. If you do not have the required background in a subject, in many cases you can take bridging courses as part of your study to prepare.

Key * Recommended **Strongly recommended

Use this guide and the key below to help choose your school subjects.

ARCHITECTURE AND BUILDING SCIENCE Arts, Design, Digital Technologies, Calculus, English, Physics, and Statistics are recommended. No portfolio is required. Students who don’t have 14 NCEA level 3 credits each in at least two of the following subjects—Calculus, Statistics and Physics—will need to include an introductory Applied Physics and Statistics course in their first-year programme.

BUSINESS Accounting, Business Studies, Calculus, Computer Science, Economics, Geography, Languages, Statistics, and essay- based subjects such as English and History will be useful for any Bachelor of Commerce degree, but most majors can be started without any specific background in that subject area. For Actuarial Science, Calculus is strongly recommended. COMMUNICATION There are no prerequisites for the Bachelor of Communication. All majors can be started from an introductory level in the first year. DESIGN INNOVATION Arts, Design, Digital Technologies, Graphics, Media Studies, and Technology are recommended for Bachelor of Design Innovation (BDI) students. Essay-based subjects are also highly recommended. No portfolio is required. Students who do not have 14 credits in an English-rich subject at NCEA Level 3 must complete a writing-skills course (WRIT 101 or WRIT 151) in their first year of the BDI.

EDUCATION Early Childhood Education

Recommended subjects for the Bachelor of Education (Teaching) Early Childhood include a balance of Sciences, Mathematics, and essay-based subjects such as English, Geography, and History. Creative subjects such as Design, Music Studies, and Practical Arts are also useful. Primary and Secondary Teaching Subjects relevant to those the student plans to teach are important preparation for the secondary pathway. Under the primary and early childhood education pathways, students will work across a broad range of learning areas, including Mathematics and Science. For all students, strong literacy and numeracy skills are essential. Knowledge of te reo Māori is useful as all student teachers are required to use this proficiently by the time they graduate; similarly, an understanding of New Zealand history is also helpful—though both can be studied from beginner level at the University. ENGINEERING Digital Technologies, Maths, Science, Statistics, and Technology are recommended for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (BE(Hons) and the Bachelor of Science (BSc). The BE(Hons), as well as Computer Science, Computer Graphics, and Electronic and Computer Systems (within the BSc) require 16 NCEA Level 3 Mathematics. Students without the necessary Mathematics requirements will be able to take introductory courses in Trimester 1 that will help them meet prerequisites for core courses.
