Wow, we're all studying some pretty diverse subjects! I have a bit of FOMO with higher education. Sometimes I think if I won the lotto I'd just become a full time student for the rest of my life and learn all the things!
It's been ages since I last studied. Are there any cool apps that you've found to help with things like referencing?

So I've just discovered one of my classes doesn't even have any lectures. You just do the readings and go to the online discussion board to talk them through and practice designated exercises. Plus the major assignment is due in Week 6. WEEK 6 YOU GUYS! WTF is this nonsense?

If i understand correctly, then if you do the subject, and it's the same subject code in the other course then yeah, they won't make you do it again. Or if they do...then you're going to a weird uni.
Also Referencing software that got me through my 2 degrees: Zotero
Also use google scholar (if you don't already). You can get it connect up with the library at your uni and it's journal subscriptions, meaning pretty much crazy stupid ammounts of access to pretty much anything you could possibly need for references.
Oh and last thing that i stole straight from here because it said exactly what i wanted to say much more clearly
If you're new to the subject, it may be helpful to pick up the terminology from secondary sources. E.g., a Wikipedia article for "overweight" might suggest a Scholar search for "pediatric hyperalimentation".
If the search results are too specific for your needs, check out what they're citing in their "References" sections. Referenced works are often more general in nature.
Similarly, if the search results are too basic for you, click "Cited by" to see newer papers that referenced them. These newer papers will often be more specific.
Explore! There's rarely a single answer to a research question. Click "Related articles" or "Cited by" to see closely related work, or search for author's name and see what else they have written.

Omg Me too @ElleBelle i want to be a lifetime student, but I think you can be if you just have the intention I just started my masters in public health, i'm doing a mental health subject atm which is SUPER interesting.
@N1ghtW1ng I use endnote for referencing and it has changed my life! haha Most courses have a convenor or a coordinator you can talk to about subjects etc maybe explain to them your dilemma? Also they could confirm whether you need to do a few subjects or just the one and get it over with!
