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

Degree transfers

Current and deferred undergraduate UON students who wish to transfer to another degree program, or to another campus (excluding Midwifery) can apply directly to UON online instead of applying through UAC*. There is no cost to submit your application.

APPLICATIONS FOR TRANSFER FOR SEMESTER 1, 2017 HAVE CLOSED. THEY WILL REOPEN FOR SEMESTER 2 2017 REQUESTS IN JUNE 2017.

Please note that vacancies in programs cannot be guaranteed, especially for mid-year transfers. 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;
  • The program has a mid-year intake;
  • 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, etc.

* The online internal transfer process does not apply to the Bachelor of Medicine (Joint Medical Program) or the Bachelor of Midwifery. If you are a domestic student and would like to apply for either of these programs you need to apply through UAC.

For postgraduate students there are limited opportunities for internal transfer between postgraduate coursework programs. Most students will need to re-apply 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:
