Academic requirements for program completion
Total units required
4 years full-time or part-time equivalent up to 10 years maximum.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Mining Transfer Program) is comprised of 320 units, with 160 units completed at the University of Newcastle (Callaghan Campus), and the remaining 160 units completed at either the University of New South Wales or University of Wollongong. Students will need to transfer their studies to either the University of New South Wales, or University of Wollongong. Students may also choose to transfer to the Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) at The University of Newcastle. Regardless of the transfer chosen, students must apply through UAC. Applications must be submitted the year before students actually need to actually transfer. Details of the UAC application process may be obtained from the Universities Admissions Centre ( http://www.uac.edu.au ).
Students wishing to undertake the program on a part-time basis are advised to contact the Program Convenor or Student Hub for advice on optimum selection of courses for part-time enrolment.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can draw on the assistance and support provided by the Indigenous Student Support and Development service through The Wollotuka Institute.
Students with a disability who require reasonable adjustments to undertake their program should contact the Disability Support Service before semester or early in the semester. Some adjustments need up to 4 weeks lead time to organise, so it is imperative that early contact is made. The Disability Support Service and relevant Faculty and School officers will work together to ensure reasonable adjustments are provided in a timely manner.
Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student's responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/disability/ for more information.
Students who have impaired function in their hands or arms, or a visual impairment may experience difficulty in pursuing this program. It is highly advisable for any prospective student to contact the Program Convenor to discuss the issue.
