Changing Course or Campus

Changing Course or Campus

Have you decided you'd like to make a change to what you're studying, or where you are studying it? There are options available for you. What would you like to do?

  Note: If you are a student being sponsored by a third party or receiving Centrelink benefits, you should seek approval from them first before initiating a course transfer, as your new course may not meet their funding criteria.

Change Course

See the below table for what to do:

Course Type Sessions completed Transfer to: Action
Undergraduate None Any Complete 1 session of study under your current degree and then apply for a course transfer (subject to approval). You should seek advice from your faculty about what subjects to enrol into to ensure they will be recognised under your preferred degree if your transfer is approved
Undergraduate At least 1 Any You can request approval to transfer degrees by completing the undergraduate course variation application form (transfer subject to approval)
Postgraduate None Same Faculty Complete 1 session of study under your current degree and then apply for a course transfer (subject to approval). You should seek advice from your faculty about what subjects to enrol into to ensure they will be recognised under your preferred degree if your transfer is approved
Postgraduate None Different Faculty You will need to seek a new offer from Future Students.

When you make your application, you can apply for credit for any subjects you have already completed which might count towards your new degree (subject to approval).

Postgraduate At least 1 Same Faculty You can request approval to transfer degrees by completing the postgraduate course variation application form (transfer subject to approval)
Postgraduate At least 1 Different Faculty

You will need to seek a new offer from Future Students.

When you make your application, you can apply for credit for any subjects you have already completed which might count towards your new degree (subject to approval).

Change Campus

If you have completed at least one session of study under your current degree, you can apply to change your campus of study by completing a course transfer form (transfer subject to approval):

If you haven't completed a session yet, you won't yet be eligible to apply to transfer to a new campus. If you haven't started studying yet, and would like to change your offer of study to a different campus, you can contact Future Students to discuss.

Note that not all degrees are available at all campuses. You can check availability through the Course Handbook.
