Varying your course


Varying your Western course

If you would like to:

  • Change your campus (after your first session)
  • Move from a double degree to the constituent single degree
  • Move into or out of an Advanced course (within your existing course)
  • Change your course for graduation purposes

You can do all of the above through a Course Variation Application. You will need to request approval from your Director of Academic Program (DAP) before submitting your completed application to the Enrolments Unit.

IMPORTANT: If you are applying to change your course for graduation purposes, please ensure your completed application is submitted by the advertised graduation deadline.
