For students in non-Law programs
Students from a non-Law program who wish to transfer into Law are expected to meet the below criteria to be considered for entry into Law:
- have completed a minimum of 48 units of credit (UOC) at UNSW and
- have not failed any course; and
- are not in the final year of their current program
Entry into Law remains competitive as non-Law IPT is only offered in Term 1. The average WAM requirement to IPT into Law is 75.
Important information for students who have completed more than 48 UOC, applying for IPT to Law:
- Timetabling is based on the expectation that transferring students will have completed 48 UOC only of their partner degree. Due to sequencing and pre-requisites, students transferring to law with more than 48 UOC cannot be guaranteed a full-time timetable.
- Students in the final year of their current program are not eligible to IPT to Law and should instead apply for the Juris Doctor program via Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) for domestic students or Apply Online for International students.
- Students currently in an International Studies program will not be permitted to take program leave or defer an IPT Law offer to enable them to commence in Term 3. If the student receives an IPT offer to the Law program and wishes to accept the offer, they will be required to commence in Term 1.
- All applications for IPT will be considered on the basis of information available at the time applications are assessed. There is no provision for considering late results or for delaying decisions.
For current Law students
- Current Law students wishing to transfer to a different Law program in Term 1 or Term 3 e.g. Arts/Law to Science/Law do not compete with other internal program transfer applicants.
- Internal program transfer between Law programs are generally approved except for students who are not in GOOD academic standing. Applications from students not in GOOD academic standing will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
- Please also note students wishing to transfer into Advanced Science / Law or Science (Advanced Maths) / Law will also need to be assessed by Science.
