Broadening units explained
All students taking an undergraduate bachelors degree at UWA must complete at least four (24 points) broadening units.
Broadening units are designed to ensure graduates have a well-rounded education across a broad range of areas to meet the needs of employers and professional organisations within a global workforce.
Broadening units are units of study outside your degree-specific major sequence (excluding also Foundational Units and Bridging Units). Previously, broadening units had Category A status or Category B status, and were related to ‘Knowledge Areas’, but these categories and requirements no longer apply.
