Deferral policy for mid-year entry

Students who receive offers for mid-year entry are not eligible to defer this place. If you aren’t yet ready to commence studying with the University of Melbourne we advise you to reapply at a more suitable time.

Current University of Melbourne students

All applications are made through VTAC, including those from current University of Melbourne students wishing to apply for a different course.

If you are a Chancellor’s Scholar seeking a place in another course you will need to apply for the standard version of the course that is available through VTAC (for example, the Bachelor of Science if you wished to seek entry to the Bachelor of Science (Chancellor’s Scholars Program). Once you have been made an offer for the standard version of the course send us an email to national-admissions@unimelb.edu.au. We will them switch to your status as a Chancellor’s Scholar to the new course.

If you were an international student who has been granted Australian permanent residency you do not need to reapply to be considered for a Commonwealth supported place in the same course. Follow the instructions here to notify us of the change and you will automatically be considered for a Commonwealth supported place. Please note that your application will be treated competitively with the rest of the application pool and selection will be based on your academic record.

If you were an international student who has been granted Australian permanent residency who wishes to transfer to another University of Melbourne degree then you will need to apply through VTAC.
