Non-Award and cross-institutional study
Admission with Credit Transfer
Students may be admitted to undergraduate degrees or award with credit for previous study and/or attainments. All credit granted in undergraduate degrees or awards must comply with the following rules:
All credit assessments will be based on the completion date for the course to be used as credit and not the program.
Courses with a successful completion date of 7 years or less can be used for specific credit transfer within a program as long as rules 1, 4, 5 and 6 are also met.
Courses with a successful completion date of up to 10 years can be used for unspecified credit within a program as long as rules 1, 4, 5 and 6 are also met.
Any credit granted must be consistent with the rules governing progression within the program, which are operative at the time the application is determined.
Students who transfer from another program shall not, in general, be granted standing which is superior to what they had in the program from which they are transferring.
Students who are admitted to the University after completing, or partly completing, the requirements of another degree or award of another tertiary institution must complete a program of study deemed to be no less than that required of students in full-time attendance in the final year of the program concerned.
Where faculty rules permit, students who have been awarded the degree of Bachelor at Pass level may be permitted to enrol for the award of the degree at Honours level with credit for all courses completed if, during their studies for the Pass degree, they have satisfied the prerequisites for entry to the Honours level laid down by the schools concerned or the equivalent of those prerequisites.
Enrolled students have the right of appeal against credit transfer decisions under the Procedures for Resolution of Student Grievances and Disputes.
Note: Eligibility for credit in a UNSW program does not guarantee admission to that program.
The Go8 Universities (Adelaide, Melbourne, Monash, ANU, Queensland, Sydney, NSW and WA) have developed a credit transfer agreement to enhance the mobility of students between Go8 institutions by facilitating the transfer of credit from one Go8 university to another. This Agreement is based on an acceptance that the assessment regimes at all Go8 universities are comparable and transferable.
The University has laid down the following rules on multiple enrolment:
No person shall be permitted to enrol in a degree, diploma or certificate course at the University of New South Wales at the same time as he/she is enrolled for any other degree, diploma or certificate in the University or at any other tertiary institution, except with the approval of the faculty or faculties concerned.
|2.||The Registrar may suspend from enrolment any student who is found to be enrolled, without approval, in more than one degree, diploma or certificate course.|
