How to Apply for Credit

Students who have previously undertaken units of study as part of a Juris Doctor or another postgraduate law program can apply to credit these units towards the Sydney JD. The units must not have contributed towards the conferral of another degree or qualification. Credit is not granted for any undergraduate law study.

It is preferable that students applying for credit do so prior to enrolment day by initially emailing an Application for Credit form, an academic transcript and a unit description to All relevant documentation indicated on the application form, including an original transcript, will need to be subsequently submitted on enrolment day. Students submitting an application form on enrolment day should be aware that this may extend the time taken to finalise your enrolment on the day.
