Undergraduate or postgraduate students may be eligible to transfer to another degree at UoN at no extra cost.

Degree transfers

Current undergraduate students enrolled at UON who wish to transfer to another degree program can apply by using the Internal Transfer form (PDF, 269KB) instead of applying through UAC. There is no cost to submit your application.

Simply complete the form and e-mail this to the Admissions Team direct from your studentmail account. Alternatively, submit a signed form via a Student Hub at least two weeks prior to the start of the relevant term. You are encouraged to submit your application as early as possible as vacancies in programs cannot be guaranteed. Where possible, offers for Trimester 1 and Semester 1 will be made before the University closes down over the Christmas period. However, please do not be concerned if you do not receive an outcome until January.

Undergraduate applications will be assessed on the basis of your Grade Point Average (GPA) from UON studies and other previous eligible qualifications, if required. The criteria below will apply:

  • There are vacancies available in the program;
  • Your eligible qualifications provide a rank equivalent to, or higher than the entrance rank cut-off applicable for the year of admission;
  • You meet any additional admission criteria for the selected program, such as an audition, a portfolio, or an interview etc.

Please note: The internal transfer application will not be accepted for the Bachelor of Medicine (Joint Medical Program) or the Bachelor of Midwifery. If you would like to apply for either of these programs you need to apply through UAC. There are limited opportunities for internal transfer between postgraduate coursework programs. Most students will need to reapply for their preferred program by lodging an online application through GradSchool or UAC.

The following scenarios for transfer are automatically recognised with no further assessment:

Educational Access Scheme (EAS): If you have experienced long-term educational disadvantage that has seriously affected your current UON studies please read the EAS booklet for the seven broad categories recognised. Applications are to be lodged directly to UON on the UAC EAS application form with your supplementary evidence. Completed forms and supporting material should be sent to Admissions by Wednesday 6 January 2016.
