Course advice and enrolment assistance

All coursework students can access dedicated appointments with specialist course advisers. Appointments are virtual and can be accessed from Australia or around the world.

Course planning appointments are the best way to get answers to questions about your course.

Our specialist course advisers can help you with:

  • Planning your course, major or specialisation
  • Understanding course rules and structure
  • Subject selection
  • Using the Study Plan
  • Concurrent diploma planning
  • Course planning around Study Abroad/Exchange
  • Checking you are on track to graduate
  • Advice on changing course direction
  • Planning for further study.

Managing your enrolment online

Before booking an appointment, check whether you're able to manage your own enrolment online. Many enrolment changes can be made quickly and easily by submitting an Enrolment Variation (EV) form.

You can submit an EV form to:

  • Have a subject prerequisite waived
  • Move subjects around on your Study Plan
  • Change your major, minor or stream
  • Request to overload or over-enrol.

You can also submit an online request to take a take a Leave of Absence or reduce your study load.

Assistance with your class timetable

If you need assistance with your class timetable, please see our class timetable pages or contact Stop 1 for help.

  1. To make the most of your appointment, we strongly recommend you are in a quiet area, with access to a computer so that we can talk through your Study Plan and other resources. Our adviser will contact you as close to your appointment time as possible.
  2. If you can’t attend your appointment, please cancel it so that other students can book the time.

Preparing for your appointment
