Cross-Institutional & Non-Award Study
Would you like to study some subjects elsewhere, to count towards your degree at UOW? You might like to consider cross-institutional study.
To undertake cross-institutional study, you can:
- Complete the application form to seek approval from your Faculty. You will need to include with your application:
- A print out of your 'Enrolment Record' from SOLS
- Subject descriptions from your other University
- Contact the other university to arrange cross-institutional enrolment into the subject/s you'd like to study
- Once your application is approved, you will be enrolled into an 'XINT' subject in SOLS and receive a letter to provide to the other University
- When you complete your external study, return your academic transcripts (originals or certified copies), to Student Central
- Allow around a week for the credit to be added to your record
Please note: If you are in your final session, cross-institutional study may delay your graduation. This depends on when you are able to get academic transcripts from the other university, as they may not arrive in time for the cut off date to apply to graduate with UOW
HELP Loan Status Letter
If you are planning to study at another University as a cross-institutional student, you may need to provide a HELP Status Letter to the other University. These letters summarise your current course of study and your Commonwealth Supported status, so that you can be eligible for the same Commonwealth Assistance for your cross-institutional enrolment. To request a HELP Status Letter, contact the fees team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are currently studying a degree at another University and would like to study some subjects at UOW to count towards your degree, you can apply for cross institutional study at UOW.
