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 directly to UON online instead of applying through UAC*. There is no cost to submit your application.


The University is in the process of implementing a new system that will enable you to apply online. So check back on this site at the end of November for a link to the new online application system.

Please note that 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.

* The online internal transfer process does not apply 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.

For postgrad students 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:

Any degree Another campus for the same degree (excluding B Midwifery and B Nursing)
Any UG combined degree Single degree within the existing combination. For combined Law programs, students can only drop the Law component.
Combined UG degree Another combined degree where one of the named degrees remains the same.

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 4 January 2017.
