  • How does mid-year selection work?

    Applications will be assessed either by faculty staff or International Admissions staff depending on the course selected and whether you want to be considered for credit.

    The University will send an acknowledgement letter to you by email as soon as you successfully submit your application.

    The acknowledgement letter will include your unique student number and application reference number. Please quote this number in all correspondence with the University.

  • Credit for previous studies

    Credit (also known as Advanced Standing) means you won’t have to repeat subjects that have equivalents in your new course, and you’ll be able to finish your course sooner.

    Credit for completed tertiary studies may be granted if they are comparable in content, equivalent in standard and relevant to the new course. Faculties specify the maximum credit allowable and publish guidelines. You can apply for credit from within the online application.

  • Deferral policy for mid-year entry

    International students offered a place mid-year may apply to defer the start of their course. Once you have received your offer, you can submit a deferral application online.
