Transferring from a domestic Full-Fee paying place to a Commonwealth supported place (CSP)

I am a domestic graduate coursework student in a Full-Fee paying place, can I transfer to a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP)?

Check if transferring from a domestic Full-Fee paying place to a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) is available in your graduate school.

Architecture, Building and Planning (Melbourne School of Design)

You will be guaranteed a transfer to a CSP for the remainder of the course if you:

  • Are enrolled in an Australian Full-Fee paying place in a 200 point (or more) masters by coursework program, 
  • Have completed your first 100 points of study, and
  • Achieved a Weighted Average Mark of at least 75%.

Not applicable to MSD graduate diplomas or 100 point masters programs.

Arts

If you are enrolled in an Australian Full-Fee paying place in a masters by coursework program, you can request consideration for a CSP by emailing arts-gradadmissions@unimelb.edu.au by the CSP closing date for the next intake.

Current students requesting a transfer to a CSP are not treated as a separate cohort, but rather go into competition with commencing CSP applicants. Applications are assessed by looking at the applicant's most recent relevant 300 points of study including current studies.

The Faculty will also accept Graduate Access Melbourne applications in cases where your situation has changed (for the worse) since commencing the course, or if you tried to apply for Graduate Access Melbourne previously but missed the closing date.
