Internal Course Transfer Policy: Undergraduate and Postgraduate

PurposeTo provide guidance to staff and students regarding internal course transfer requirements, and minimum selection criteria for Faculty of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences coursework programs.
Scope This policy applies to all currently enrolled Monash University Students wishing to transfer into the Faculty's coursework programs.
Policy Statement The Faculty will determine whether places are available for internal course transfers.* This policy does not apply to students wanting to change their fee status or those seeking to transfer to Monash from other institutions. A student who wishes to apply for an internal course transfer into a Faculty coursework program must meet the admission requirements for the course (for example, prerequisite requirements of Chemistry, Mathematics, English). Individual course requirements are specified in course finder.

The Faculty will assess internal course transfers based on the minimum selection criteria:

1. Undergraduate programs:
Students must have successfully completed at least one semester of study (24 credit points) with a 60% average in their current year of study.

2. Postgraduate Coursework:
Students must h ave undertaken at least one semester of study (12 credit points) and should have successfully completed all unit attempted in that award and achieved the minimum WAM/GPA for the course they wish to apply for.

3. Where the course transfer is to a double degree, the minimum requirements of the other Faculty will also be observed.

Each School/Department will select course transfer students based on the minimum selection criteria of the faculty. However in order to be selected, a higher level of performance may be required by an applicant, due to a highly competitive environment.

*Please note: The MBBS program does not accept internal course transfer applications.
