Course progression check

After you have decided on the exchange program you wish to participate in, we strongly encourage you to complete a course progression check. This involves creating a course map plan and submitting it to your School Course Advisor for assessment.  By doing so, you can ensure that you meet all the course requirements for graduation before embarking on your exchange journey.

Please note that this process applies to all types of exchange programs. You can retrieve the course map template via this link (refer to the student course progression plan template section). For those who need help with the course map creation process, we encourage you to refer to the self-help guides on planning your own course map.

If you require the course advisor to review your completed course map for the exchange program, you can submit the request through Ask.Mira.

Pre-set course map for the exchange program

We recommend preparing the exchange course map as early as possible (in your year 1) to reserve all elective units for your exchange semesters. Therefore, we have prepared a pre-set course map for the exchange plan to guide students.
