How to apply
A Step-by-step Guide to Applying for On-Campus Study at UNE
Transferring to UNE from another university involves a couple of different steps. We can help with information and support so that the change runs smoothly for you. Everyone's circumstances are different, but this guide will help you get started. Contact us at anytime for advice on your particular situation.
Step 1: Prepare
Firstly decide which courses you would like to transfer to, and then check that you are able to meet the requirements for that course.
In most cases if you are transferring to the same or similar degree you will qualify for entry. However, it is still a good idea to check the course guide for additional entry requirements.
Step 2: Lodge an Application Through UAC or QTAC
You apply by completing form B of the UAC Guide, or QTAC's Tertiary Study Application form. The Year 12 student edition of the UAC Guide does not include a Form B. You can purchase a Guide with a form B from newsagents, or direct from UAC. You can apply through QTAC online or using the Tertiary Study Application Form in the QTAC Guide.
You can place up to nine courses on your application in NSW, and six in Queensland. List courses in your order of preference, starting with the program you would most like to study. Your list can be a mix from different universities. It's important to use the correct course code set by UAC or QTAC.
Please check here for current closing dates.
Step 3: Receiving and accepting an offer
From mid-December onwards, UAC and QTAC begin making offers to successful applicants. There are several rounds of offers. You will receive one offer for the highest eligible preference on your application. UAC and QTAC publish the offer timeline on their web sites.
If you are offered a place, you will receive information explaining how to accept your offer and enrol.
Step 4: Apply for a place in college
Many on-campus students stay in one of the UNE Residences to enjoy support with their studies and the opportunity to participate in a range of activities. Residences fill quickly, so apply for a place as soon as you know you're coming to UNE.
Step 5: Enrol
Enrolling at UNE is easy - you can do so online through our student portal facility, myUNE. UNE will send you information that guides you through this process, as well as information about accommodation and opportunities to attend University induction courses.
Step 6: Apply for course credits or advanced standing
Now is the time to apply for credit or advance standing for any studies you've completed elsewhere that may be relevant to your new program at UNE. You can read the full guidelines and policy on advanced standing here.
To apply for credit for studies you have undertaken at another tertiary institution send a letter to: Head, Student Centre, The University of New England NSW 2351.
To help us assess whether credit can be given, send the following with your letter:
- academic transcript and syllabus of the courses you completed at another tertiary institution (or substantiation of your work experience, including references and contact details of referees)
- your UAC number
- name of the UNE course for which you are applying
