2. Early/late intensive units of study

Please complete your enrolment in Sydney Student via MyUni prior to the Last day to add or enrol in a unit of study. Online enrolment will close after the relevant session enrolment deadline. However, you may submit a late enrolment application to Law Postgraduate Team. Unit outlines are normally made available to enrolled students 3 weeks prior to the first class. Please refer to Learning Management System (LMS)

3. Conditions of enrolment

Despite any publication or announcement, the University may change or cancel arrangements for courses or units of study, including in respect of staffing, content or location. The University will use reasonable endeavours to update the timetable with respect to any cancellation or change. The University will not be liable to any student for any consequential loss suffered as a result of cancellation or change, including travel or other costs incurred. Please consult the Timetable and Units page for the latest information.

4. Units with restricted class size

Students are not able to enrol directly into the following units of study. Eligible students will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis. Priority will be given to students enrolled in a Sydney Law School master’s degree or graduate diploma. Please submit a “special permission” application in Sydney Student via MyUni

* Please note enrolment priority will be given to continuing students who are (i) currently enrolled in a full award course at Sydney Law School and (ii) completing their final semester of studies

To be registered on the waiting list, please contact

5. Offshore units of study

For further information, please visit offshore opportunities. Registration applications must be lodged by the prescribed closing date. Successful applicants will be notified regarding the enrolment process. Contact

6. Attendance requirements

Students must attend at least 70% of classes in order to satisfy class attendance requirements. Participation in all scheduled sessions of an intensive unit is essential. Exemption may only be considered by the lecturer upon satisfactory evidence of compelling grounds i.e. serious illness, injury or misadventure which occur during an intensive unit. Students with an unsatisfactory attendance record may be refused permission to undertake assessment tasks in the unit, and must therefore discontinue the unit.

8. Learning Management System (LMS)

The University Learning Management System is used by the Sydney Law School to manage online course content. A LMS site is developed for each unit of study and the material found on these sites is supplemental and supportive to your face-to-face studies. Unit outlines, reading materials, class handouts, PowerPoint slides, notices, and links to relevant University sites are some materials which may be available on each site. LMS sites are generally accessible on the first day of classes for semester-length units. Students enrolled in intensive units will be notified of the availability of the LMS site via their University email address. Students are strongly advised to check LMS sites regularly as important notices and assessment details may be posted to the unit LMS site. To log into the LMS, go to https://elearning.sydney.edu.au. Alternatively, students may access the LMS via the Sydney Law School website ("eLearning/LMS from the "Quick Links" drop-down menu). Students will need a UniKey login to access the system.

For technical enquiries regarding the Law LMS sites, please contact the Law eLearning / LMS Co-ordinator.
