Changing course or campus

Changing a course

To make a change to what or where you are studying, there are many options available (see below). Decisions are dependent on the type of student you are, i.e. Undergraduate (UG) or Postgraduate (PG), and how many sessions of your current degree have been completed.

Undergraduate - no sessions completed

You will need to complete one (1) session of study under their current degree. Following this they may apply for a course transfer (subject to approval). It is important to contact the relevant Faculty regarding subjects to enrol in to ensure recognition under the students preferred degree (if the transfer is approved).

Refer to Faculty contacts listed below.

Undergraduate - completed at least one session

Students will need to request approval to transfer degrees by completing an Undergraduate Course Transfer form (subject to approval).

Postgraduate - no sessions completed

Following this they may apply for a course transfer (subject to approval).

Note: Sponsored students (by a third party) or student(s) receiving Centrelink benefits must seek approval from the third party (or Centrelink) before initiating a course transfer as some courses do not meet Sponsorship criteria.

Changing campus

If a student has completed at least one session of study (under their current degree) they are eligible to apply to change their Campus of study. To do so, a course transfer form will need to be completed.  Course transfer forms are either the Undergraduate Course Transfer or Postgraduate Course Transfer.

Where a student has not completed a session of study, eligibility to transfer to an alternative Campus will not be considered.  In these instances, students will need to contact the Student Services Future student specialists to discuss.

Important: not all degrees are available at all Campuses. To clarify, students should check availability via the Course Handbook.
