How to enrol - step by step guide

    Expand
  • Step 1: accepting an offer

    If you applied through SATAC, you will need to accept your offer through the SATAC website

    If you have a non-SATAC offer, please refer to your original offer for instructions on how to accept.

  • Step 2: applications for credit

    If you have already completed prior learning at other institutions then you might be eligible for credit towards your program. If your application is successful then the courses you need to enrol in might change, so it's best to get your application in as soon as possible.

    Am I eligible? Go to the Credit Estimator to see if you are eligible for credit. You will be able to apply once you have been through the estimator.

    Please ensure you have relevant documents such as academic transcripts ready, in electronic format so you can upload them to support your application.

  • Step 3: orientation events

  • Step 4: first-year courses

    First year subjects are referred to as ‘Level 1’ courses. There are a variety of courses available in first year depending on which degree and major you chose. 

    There are a number of subject areas offered in first year (e.g. biology, chemistry, geology, physics and maths) that are compulsory for the program you are studying. The study plan for your degree or major provides a guide how your program will be structured and to identify the subject areas you will need to select in first year.

    Level 1 studies will shape your options at second (Level 2) and third year (Level 3). It is important to learn about the flexibility that your degree offers and how this related to your preferred areas of study.

    For advice and support to select your courses, attend the Enrolment Advice Session (Step 5).
