Course transfer

Apply for a course transfer if you want to change your enrolment to a new course, campus or mode

Who can apply?

Any student who is currently enrolled in an award course can apply to transfer.  

You must re-enrol in your existing course by the re-enrolment deadline if your Course/Campus Transfer Application form has not been processed. By re-enrolling you avoid the late re-enrolment fee. Please refer to your Faculty specific course transfer rules when applying.

Reasons you should apply

You apply for a course transfer for the following reasons:

  • changing courses
  • changing mode (between cloud and campus)
  • changing campus (from one campus to another)

Seek advice before you apply

Before applying for a course transfer, you should contact a faculty course adviser for advice. 

  • Contact your current course adviser 
  • Contact the course adviser from your intended course(s).  If you are unsure which area of the University to contact please look for the course in the Handbook to find contact information.
  • Selection for course transfers is based on availability of places and academic performance.
  • If approved, a course transfer may increase the time it takes to complete your degree as all the units you've completed so far may not count towards your new course.
  • International students should consider how a course transfer may affect their visa status.

How to apply

You need to complete a Course/Campus Transfer application form (PDF 1.0MB) and email it to your faculty:

Submission of the application does not guarantee a course transfer. Selection is based on the availability of places and academic performance.
