Potential fee changes
Note that transferring to a different course may result higher / lower fees depending on the fee band or the length of the course.
In some cases, it is possible to change campus and remain in the same course (where the course is offered at more than one campus) in which case, you will need to apply for a course transfer. Please note, however, that in many cases, only a small number of transfers from regional campuses to Bundoora can be accommodated, and these generally require evidence of exceptional circumstances. The approval of two Heads of School is required for such transfers (the School in which you are currently enrolled, and the School into which you wish to transfer). Fill out one of the below application forms and submit online via the Ask a Question page.

Please note that some campuses do not have the same subject offerings as the others. Before you apply for a transfer, make sure you check the University Handbook entry for the relevant campus to ensure that the subjects/majors and course/s are available and meet your needs.
Study at another university
If you want to study at another university, you will need to contact that university directly.
Once you have confirmed a place at another university, please make sure that you formally discontinue your enrolment by the relevant census date. Please complete the Discontinuation of Enrolment form [PDF 2MB] and submit online via the Ask a Question page or your local student administration office for regional campuses.
