Planning Guides (Undergrad)

We have created a series of handy program planning guides to help you keep track of the courses you have completed and plan your progress through the Bachelor of Music degree program.

Before using the planning guides, please download and read How to Use the Program Planning Guides, which will guide you through the planning process step by step.

If you are in the Conjoint Degrees program Bachelor of Music/Bachelor of Music Education, you will find the Program Outline for the B.Mus./B.Mus.Ed. Conjoint Degrees Program to be a useful overview. This outline shows the normal distribution of courses across the five years of the Conjoint program and is a handy reference for Conjoint Degrees students. For more detailed program planning, please refer to the Program Planning Guides for your instrument.

There are two sets of planning guides. Which set you should use depends on when you entered the School of Music. You will normally follow the Calendar regulations from the academic year in which you entered (or re-entered) the Bachelor of Music program. However, you may choose to follow the regulations of a later Calendar.

  • Old Program: If you entered the School of Music before September 2012, use the 2011-12 (old program) planning guides unless you are following the new program.
  • New Program: If you entered the School of Music in September 2012 or later, OR if you entered before 2012 but are following the new program, use the 2012-13 (new program) planning guides.

Regulations vary slightly according to your principal applied study. Click on the heading for your applied study area below to find the planning guide that is right for you.
