Enrolment and credit transfer

How to enrol and gain credit for your studies

Whether you're coming to Sydney or heading overseas, stay enrolled with your home university while you take subjects at your host university and you'll get credit when you complete your study.

Enrolment in your first semester

Once you have received an unconditional offer, you will need to accept your offer formally before you can enrol. 

You can do this by accepting your offer online or completing the acceptance of offer form and emailing it to

As part of your acceptance, you'll need to select your preferred units of study up to a full-time load of 24 credit points (usually four units of study).

If you're studying with us as a Sydney Abroad student, you will need to pay your tuition fees. If you are a scholarship recipient, you will also need to provide a letter of financial guarantee confirming payment for tuition fees and health insurance (Overseas Student Health Cover) before acceptance.

Exchange is a fee-waiver program, so there are no tuition fees.

You will have the opportunity to confirm your preferred units of study (as submitted at the time of application) closer to the start of semester, with guidance from a Sydney Abroad adviser.

To enrol online, you will need a UniKey login that will be sent to you with a temporary password once your offer has been accepted.

During the enrolment process, you will update personal and contact details, view the units of study you have selected, pay any outstanding fees, and upload a photo for your student ID.

If you change your mind and would like to take units of study not listed in your application, you will have the opportunity to change them during the Orientation period once you arrive in Sydney. Variations of enrolment are allowed up to the end of Week 1 of semester. To do this, email your adviser with your request.

Transfer of credit

We release results shortly after the official end of semester. We will send two copies of your official transcript to your sponsoring organisation/home institution, or to you directly.
