This unit is so-called 'shell' unit, which means that you need to attend some other teaching unit in order to pass this one - that is the reason why it is not listed on a student timetable. There is no need to actually enroll in these units through eStudent, just to contact Dr Danijel Džino and let him know your choice. As 'filling' for this unit you should do any of AHIS3000 ancient history/archaeology units offered in this semester. The list of units on offer could be assessed through following link: https://coursehandbook.mq.edu.au/search?q=AHIS
Content of the unit you chose would be identical as undergraduate AHIS unit, but your assessment will be adjusted to postgraduate level. In consultation with course convenor you will chose topic of your long essay, and did preparatory assignments related to this essay such as Research Plan and Annotated Bibliography. Please check iLearn for more details about these assessments.
IMPORTANT: Assignments must be submitted through iLearn of THIS unit, not of filler unit.
