Undergraduate study

Crosslisting and the crosslisting search tool are only relevant to students who commenced their degree prior to 2014.


The subject matter taught in a unit of study may span 2 or more subject areas (eg the senior unit of study ASNS3619 China and Globalisation counts towards an Asian Studies Major and also a History major). In these cases a unit may be cross-listed to one or more majors. The ‘cross-listing’ of a subject is a formal agreement between the departments involved, you can not apply to have a unit cross-listed to your major individually. The number of cross-listed units that can count towards a major can vary, please refer to the Handbook Archive and view the Table of Units of Study for your chosen major in the year in which you began that major.

Cross listed units can only count towards the requirements of one major

Steps to follow

You should consult the rules for your major, as set out in the Handbook for the year in which you began your course.

You will then submit a request for special permission to enrol through your Sydney Student portal in myUni under unit of selection in the “My Studies” tab

If your request is approved, your enrolment will be processed by the Student Services team and a notification will be sent to your university email address.
