Question:

I am enrolled at another university but I wish to transfer to Macquarie. How do my previous studies impact on my application?

Answer:

As you are currently enrolled at another university you have to apply to study at Macquarie University via the Universities Admission Centre (UAC).

If you have only completed one session at your current university, UAC will take into consideration whatever is the highest—your ATAR or your first session results—when assessing your application. However if you have undertaken a full year of study, UAC will combine your ATAR together with your overall university results, i.e. your GPA, although greater weighting is usually given to your tertiary studies.

When accepting any UAC offer at the University, you can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning.

For alternative entry into Macquarie, that is not via UAC, please see our Pathways to Macquarie website.
