Leave of Absence

Unexpected things sometimes happen in life, or maybe you have an itch to travel and see the world before knuckling down. If you wish to take time off from the course you're currently enrolled in, you may be able to apply for a Leave of Absence.

As a student you may request a Leave of Absence for up to 12 months. This will mean that your course is put on hold for you to complete after you've returned from your leave. However, you are not permitted to take this leave during the first six months of your course or the final month of your course. Learn more

Withdraw from your Course

Course withdrawal refers to the process of permanently withdrawing yourself from your course (degree). If you would like to resume your studies in the discontinued course in the future, you will need to reapply. Learn more

Advanced standing

You are automatically assessed for Advanced Standing (Credit or Recognised Prior Learning) when you apply to study with us. Any credit you are awarded will be outlined in your offer letter. If you are applying for the 100 point Master of Education, Master of TESOL or Master of Modern Languages you are not required to submit a separate application for advanced standing.

Reenrolment

You must enrol at the beginning of your course and then re-enrol every year for the duration of your course. Reenrolment generally opens in October for the following year. Remember to check your student email so you don’t miss the reminder. Learn more

If you need a break from study, you can apply for a leave of absence.
