Glad this was bumped, remembered I initially held off posting until I was in my final year. Will probably post again next semester. Looks weird having a lot of my major units for Psychology sit near the bottom, but I think it's more reflective of most of my minor/elective units being way better rather than Psychology being bad.

ATS2866 - Symbolic logic (this unit is incredible, the new UC introduced a whole new course and it's soooo good)
ATS2173 - Korean intermediate 1
ATS1172 - Korean introductory 2
ATS1171 - Korean introductory 1
PSY3320 - Sleep and circadian rhythms (readings and exam were brutal but still up there as the best Psych unit honestly)
ATS2946 - Critical thinking: How to analyse arguments and improve your reasoning skills
ATS1835 - Time, self and mind
ATS1371 - Life, death and morality
ATS3089 - Social institutions and power in Asia
ATS1338 - The language game: Why do we talk the way we do? (old name)
PSY2071 - Developmental psychology
PSY2042 - Personality and social psychology
PSY3041 - Psychological testing, theories of ability and ethics
ATS2720 - Youth, culture and social change
(this will probably go up once the other assignments come around)
PSY1011 - Psychology 1A
PSY1022 - Psychology 1B
PSY3051 - Perception and cognitive psychology
PSY2061 - Biological psychology
EDF1303 - Understanding learning and learners (old name)
EDF1304 - Understanding teaching for learning (old name)

^Nice one! Is ATS3089 a new unit? Looks like exactly the type of thing I would have studied, but I don't recognise it at all.

Looks like it was introduced in 2013, but when I took it last year it came under new management; weirdly, it isn't running this year. Shame, it was a pretty engaging unit for my first taste of that area of study and most people seemed to like it too.

Applied econometrics is top notch! Lecturer's not too lax with the theoretical content even though it's supposed to be "applied". Would highly recommend this to anyone considering research in the Faculty of Business and Economics.

This will be horrendous when I want to procrastinate by ranking all 38 (or 42 next sem) units I've done, which is why I totally haven't set a reminder to do this.

Indigenous perspectives: is important to know but the way it's taught is really boring. The lectures are from 6-8 on Monday nights and they repeat the same points sometimes each week. It's a 1st year course but it's also a high fail rate course (which they keep reminding us about which is a bit stressful).

M&S4: This ones the last theory unit and I haven't really enjoyed most of them. I like this one more than the ones last year, but this focusses on jazz theory and I haven't really played or listen to a lot of jazz music.

Performance Lab: I don't really enjoy my lecturer for this (which is annoying because I've had her since sem 2 last year) and I feel like most of the classes aren't structured well. The classes aren't very interesting or engaging sometimes which is really disappointing.

Compulsary attendance: I need to attend at least 80% of all music & education stuff. :(

Whats worse is I have a 5 1/2 hour break in between my morning class and the 6-8 lecture.

Will you be continuing with other German units in the future, or not feasible?

As part of my degree, I have to complete 24 UoC of one language so I complete the last part of that next term with Intermediate B. I wish I could do more but it just doesn't fit in my program after the compulsory 24 credits :-(
