If you started Newstep this year and have completed 10 to 20 units you will be automatically transferred to our existing 40-unit Open Foundation program for Semester 2 after your Semester 1 results are released on the Fully Graded Date (July 2).

You will be offered up to 20 units of credit depending on the Newstep courses you have completed, and have 2 years to complete Open Foundation if you would like to study part-time.

You'll receive confirmation of your successful transfer and offer of credit via email by Wednesday 7 July.
