- Two journeys start from level I with supplementary courses along the way in levels II, III and IV.
- Journey one: Taking ENVSOCTY 1HB3 in level I leads to ENVSCOTY 2H13 or ENVSOCTY 2E13 in level II, both of which lead to ENVSOCTY 4HH3 in level IV. ENVSOCTY
- 2HI3 also leads to ENVSOCTY 4HC3 in level IV.
- Journey two: Taking BIOLOGY 3M03 in level one leads to LIFESCI 2X03 in level two, which leads to LIFESCI 4F03 in level four.
- ECON 2CC3 can be taken as an independent course in level II.
- The following can be taken as independent courses in level III: HISTORY 3CP3, BIOLOGY 3SA3, HLTHAGE 3R03, HLTHAGE 3S03, LIFESCI 3G03 and LIFESCI 3Q03.
- The following can be taken as independent courses in level IV: HTHSCI 4LD3 and HTHSCI 4ZZ3.
