If you enrol in more than one award course, either at the University of Sydney or across institutions, this is called concurrent enrolment.
You can only enrol concurrently if you have approval from the relevant associate deans, or if it is an approved part of a combined or double degree.
Usually, concurrent enrolment will be approved for one semester. If you can't satisfy the requirements of your first degree within one semester, it may be extended to two semesters. Concurrent enrolment will not be approved for more than two semesters.
When concurrently enrolled, your total study load across both degrees can't exceed a full-time study load (24 credit points per semester).
You need to submit your application after your results have been released, but before the start of the semester you want to be concurrently enrolled in. If you apply before results are released, your application will be rejected and you'll need to reapply.
For more information on conditions and applying for concurrent enrolment, see the Coursework Policy 2014 and additional faculty or school information below.
If you're enrolled in an undergraduate degree, you are not eligible to enrol concurrently.
If you are a postgraduate student and want to apply for concurrent enrolment, email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’re a Combined Law student, you need to complete the requirements of your first degree before transferring to the Bachelor of Laws for your final two years. However if you are due to transfer to the Bachelor of Laws but have less than 24 credit points remaining in your first degree, and have completed at least eight of the ten junior Law units, you may be eligible to concurrently enrol in both degrees.
The following conditions also apply for concurrent enrolment:
To apply for concurrent enrolment, submit an Application for concurrent enrolment (pdf, 83KB) with a cover letter explaining why you haven’t completed your first degree on time and need to concurrently enrol.
If you are a postgraduate law student and want to apply for concurrent enrolment, you will need to get approval from the Associate Dean for your other degree. Forward this approval with your request to email@example.com
If you’re enrolled in the Sydney Medical Program and want to concurrently enrol in studies outside the program, you need to discuss this with Associate Professor Leo Davies before submitting your application.
For conditions and more information, see the Sydney Medical School Concurrent Enrolment Provisions 2016.
