General FAQs

How do I change my Units of Study?
You can change your Units of Study online via My Uni (opens in a new window). If you are having trouble you can fill out a Variation of Enrolment form.

Special permission from the department is required if you do not meet the pre-requisite for a particular Unit of Study, or if it is a Unit of Study not associated with your degree.

When am I able to change my Units of Study?
There are various penalties associated with discontinuing from a Unit of Study after a certain date. You should be aware that the following definitions apply to variations of enrolment made by students who are considered local (ie, permanent residents of Australia):

Withdrawal
No academic or financial penalty.

I've been sent an email about pre-enrolling, what do I need to do?
After your first year of study you don't need to enrol in person, you can complete a process called pre-enrolment through MyUni.

There are two deadlines – one for pre-enrolling on paper and one for pre-enrolling via MyUni. Please refer to the email from the Student Centre for full details.

What do I do if I miss pre-enrolment?
You will need to re-enrol in person during enrolment week.

How do I find contact details for a member of staff?
Use the online directory where you can search for staff by name or department.

Can I change to a different BPM stream or a type of BE/BPM or a different degree?
To change to a different BPM stream you will need to obtain permission from the BPM Coordinator.

For combined degree students, in order to change to a different Bachelor of Engineering degree, you need to obtain permission from the Head of School. You should speak with an advisor first.

To switch from a combined degree to a single degree you will need to speak with the Faculty Office and an advisor about the units you have to complete.

Any other degree change goes through UAC or the International Student Office.

Where can I get my timetable?
View your timetable at sydney.edu.au/current_students/student_administration/timetables.shtml

What if I have a timetable clash?
If you have a clash between a lecture and a tutorial, you must give preference to the lecture. If you have a clash between two tutorials, you can swap after consulting with the tutors involved.

If you have a clash between two compulsory lectures, liaise with your lecturers about what arrangements can be made to allow you to continue in both subjects.

How to I enrol for next year?
After your first year of study you don't need to enrol in person, you can complete your enrolment through MyUni.
There are two deadlines – one for enrolling on paper and one for enrolling via MyUni. Please refer to correspondence you will have received from the Student Centre for full details.

What if I fail a subject?
If you fail a subject, talk to your year advisor about how this will affect your enrolment.
