Some papers have prerequisites (entry requirements, for example a certain level of study at NCEA, or another university paper that ensures you have a level of understanding to participate), corequisites (a paper that you must take at the same time) and/or restrictions (only one of the restricted papers can be taken). You may be required to take a particular prerequisite paper as your elective if you do not fulfil the entry requirements for your chosen papers.

It is possible to change your optional paper choices once you are enrolled. You can normally change your enrolment in papers prior to , or in the first one or two weeks of semester.
