# Courses

Our full list of courses is below, and there are also packages of courses available for students with particular interests or needs:

Planning a course program can be challenging. It is important that students enroll in the courses most appropriate to their overall goals and abilities, as well as completing their required mathematics prerequisites.

It is strongly recommended that students contact us for advice when planning their course program.
