You can choose to:

  • Take a second major

  • Take a maximum of 120 points from outside the field of the degree - this includes all BMS major subjects and compulsory papers.

Note: If you are taking an Accounting major then you can swap HRMG241 with ACCT231 though you may not also count it towards your Accounting major. However, you are strongly encouraged to take HRMG241 as one of your elective papers.

Note: If you do not pass the WCM in your first semester of study, then you will be required to take MCOM104 Written Communication for Management in your second semester, this may require additional points to be taken for your programme.
