Domestic students only
If you cannot come to the university to enrol at all, you can have someone else attend and enrol for you. This is called a proxy enrolment. If someone is acting as your proxy and completing your enrolment for you, they must ensure they bring the following items with them to the enrolment session:
- A letter signed by you, the enrolling student, giving the proxy legal permission to enrol on your behalf. There is also an official Proxy Enrolment Form, which can be downloaded from the Student Centre Website. You must use this form otherwise the University will not be able to recognise your proxy for the purposes of enrolment.
- Your proxy will need to know the specific course (degree) you wish to study and its corresponding UAC course code. If possible, you should ensure your proxy has access to your letter of offer and UAC acceptance slip, which they can sign on your behalf and bring with them on the day of enrolment.
- Your proxy will also need to know how you intend to pay your tuition fees. It is important to note however that your proxy will not be able to sign the relevant HECs and fees forms on your behalf. You will need to finalise this yourself when you are next on campus and prior to the census date.
- Your proxy will need to know the units of study (subjects) you wish to study. The Faculty will send you further information to assist you with this closer to the time of your enrolment.
- Your proxy will need to bring your current postal address details.
- If you are a permanent resident, your proxy will need to provide the date permanent residency was granted.
- Finally, your proxy must ensure that they bring a current drivers licence or another form of photo identification to prove their identity on they day of your enrolment. Without this they will not be able to act as your proxy.
Your offer letter will explain how you enrol at University and what you should bring with you that day. You will also receive instructions from the Faculty directly via email on the same day as you receive your offer. Some things you need to bring include:
|Local Students||International Students|

You will be contacted separately from the Faculty’s Student Support Team about this program before your enrolment. The Faculty strongly encourages all eligible students to join.
