Plan Your Studies

As a Combined Law student you choose a combination of law and non-law units in your first degree. Once you complete your first degree, you undertake only law units in your final two years in order to complete your Bachelor of Laws.

To help you select your law units, please refer to the Bachelor of Laws: Degree Structure.
Please note the law component of the combined degree is a fixed program and you must enrol in your law units in the sequence indicated.

To help you select your non-law units, please visit the relevant partner faculty website:
Arts & Social Sciences
Business School
Engineering & Information Technologies

Credit for Previous Law Studies

After you enrol, if you are a transfer student from another Australian university and you wish to apply for law credit you should apply via the 'My studies' tab in Sydney Student.

Sydney Mail and University Correspondence

Sydney Mail is your official University student email account. Your UniKey details provide you with access to this account. It is a University requirement that you check this email address on a regular basis as important notices are sent to this address including the availability of LMS sites, notification of last-minute changes to class times/locations, reminders on enrolment procedures/deadlines as well as all official correspondence from the University's central administration (including the library). You can arrange to redirect your Sydney Mail to an alternative email address of your choice but you must ensure that you maintain that address.

You are encouraged to visit the University's Enrolment Site to guide you through the enrolment process.

Concurrent Enrolment

If you are a Combined Law student who should be enrolling in their penultimate law year in 2015 but you have fallen behind in your first degree, you may be eligible to concurrently enrol in 2015 and undertake a limited number of your penultimate-law-year units whilst you complete your first degree. For further information please refer to Concurrent Enrolment.

Enrolling in Elective Units

if you are eligible to enrol in elective units in 2015, you are advised to finalise your enrolment in these units by the end of 2014. Enrolment in some elective units will be restricted due to class quotas from the first week in January 2015 (please see Waiting List).

When selecting your elective units please remember to check the 2015 Timetable so that class times do not clash. It is your responsibility to ensure you meet the attendance requirement for all units of study in which you are enrolled.

Please also note that enrolment in some elective units requires a special application and you will not be able to enrol directly in these units. For a list of these units and their closing dates please refer to Units by Special Application.

Personal Timetables

The University’s centralised timetabling system will allocate students into groups and will produce a personalised timetable for each student. The system allocates students according to a student’s particular combination of units and the availability of places in groups. It is not possible to indicate a preference for a particular group or time slot during the enrolment period.

You will be able to access your personal timetable and vary your class times (where possible) at MyUni. Please note that any individual change may affect your entire timetable.

If you are unsuccessful in your attempt to change your timetable online and you have a compelling reason, you may submit a Change of Timetable Request form which will be available during the following periods:

Semester 1 Monday 23 February to Friday 6 March
Semester 2 Monday 20 July to Friday 31 July

To minimise disruption to classes, changes to personal timetables must be finalised by the end of the first week of each semester. Requests cannot be considered after 6 March (Semester 1 timetables) and 31 July (Semester 2 timetables). You will be able to confirm the outcome of your request to change your timetable by viewing your timetable via MyUni. Should your request be unsuccessful, you will be advised by email.

1. Under no circumstances should you attend classes other than those in which you are officially timetabled until the changes you have requested appear on MyUni.
2. Please do not approach teaching staff for permission to attend their group as they are unable to approve such requests.
3. In certain units of study, syllabus and assessment requirements vary from group to group, so it is essential that your name appears on the roll for the group you are attending.

If you attend a group in which you are not officially timetabled you will not be permitted to sit interim or final exams for that group and you will receive an Absent Fail grade for the unregistered class.

Class Attendance Requirements

You are required to attend at least 70% of classes for each law unit of study in order to satisfy unit requirements. If you have an unsatisfactory attendance record you may be refused permission to undertake assessment tasks in the unit, with no opportunity to pass the unit.
