How to enrol
The University will be moving to an online enrolment service in the very near future. This will provide you with the convenience to enrol at any time and from any place, during the enrolment period.
You will be contacted with more information about the enrolment dates and process in early July, prior to commencement of Semester 2.
Study Abroad and Student Exchange
Please refer to the Study Abroad and Exchange Predeparture and Orientation for more information about program dates.
Welcome and orientation programs
At the beginning of each semester there are transition programs and orientation events designed to welcome new students to the University of Sydney.
These activities are organised by faculties, the Library and central student support services, who all work together to help you become familiar with the University, find your way around, and make new friends. There are additional events for international students.
- Learn more at the Orientation website.
Adding or withdrawing a subject
For Semester One 2014, you can add a subject until Friday 14 March 2014 and withdraw from a subject without penalty until Monday 31 March 2014. Please note that some subjects are held in non-standard sessions and have different census dates. For a list of sessions and their corresponding census dates, visit the Session Dates page.
Under ESOS legislation student visa holders are required to complete their course within the duration specified in their Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE). Therefore you need to stay enrolled in a full-time study load (24 credit points).
However, there are exceptional circumstances where you may be able to reduce your study load. For advice, contact the International Student Advisers at the International Student Office. Email them at .
