Step 6: Complete your administrative enrolment - Section contents

As a study abroad or exchange student, completing your administrative enrolment means that you can enrol in your course and in pre-approved subjects before you arrive in Australia.

Enrol in your course

At the University of Melbourne, the word ‘course’ is used to refer to the degree or program that you are studying. For example, Bachelor of Science, undergraduate exchange or Doctor of Philosophy.

Your contact information

  1. Australian residential address. If you are yet to confirm an Australian address, please add it in when known and mark it as your "contact address" so correspondence during your studies gets to you easily.
