Commencing undergraduate students via UAC may be permitted to apply for an internal program transfer. The University will consider the request but approval is not automatic. Approved transfers would depend on whether the substitute program has vacancies, the applicant meeting the published cut-off for the substitute program and whether the applicant meets any special selection criteria for the substitute program.
The opportunity is restricted to the following categories:
- Applicants who gain admission via UAC to one program and wish to change to another program provided that program has vacancies.
- These students must meet the entry requirements (including special selection criteria) for the program and must not have been deemed ineligible by UAC.
In a limited number of circumstances students may be eligible to transfer to another program at no extra cost. The opportunity is restricted to the following categories:
