How to apply - Undergraduate law courses

Internal Course Transfer (Deakin University students only)

Students who have commenced studies in an award course at Deakin University may apply to transfer to another award course. Selection will be based primarily on academic merit, i.e. the selection standards applicable for both VTAC and direct applicants. When an application for Course Transfer has been approved, students will not normally be permitted to transfer back into the initial course at a later date.
Deakin students will not be required to apply through VTAC or by Direct application for a new course as the admission standards are equivalent for all applicants.

Law and Law Combined Courses

Students who have commenced a stand-alone award course other than law may apply for transfer to a law course at the end of the first trimester of study (or part-time equivalent) and successful completion of 4 credit points.

Current Deakin students must achieve a minimum WAM for the application for transfer to be considered for law courses.

  • Minimum of 70 for entry into Law at Burwood
  • Minimum of 65 for entry into Law at Geelong
  • Minimum of 60 for entry into Law at Warrnambool

Students who have commenced a Law or Combined Law course and wish to transfer to a different combined or stand alone Law course.

Students who have commenced a combined law course may apply for transfer to another combined law course on their campus of enrolment upon successful completion of their first trimester of study and successful completion of 4 credit points.
