Upgrade for postgraduate award courses
Postgraduate students can apply to upgrade from their current award course to a higher level within an embedded sequence if they satisfy the requirements of the Business School. An example is when a student wishes to upgrade their award course from a Graduate Certificate in Commerce to a Graduate Diploma or Masters of Commerce. Upgrades may only take place within an embedded sequence. It is not possible to upgrade and transfer at once (for example from the Graduate Diploma in Economics to the Masters of Commerce).
To upgrade, a student must have completed at least four units of study with a minimum Credit (65%) average. If a student has completed more than four units of study, their average will be calculated across all units completed. Fail grades are included when calculating the average.
To apply to upgrade, students lodge an application for a Course Transfer online through Sydney Student.
