- Attach the Subject Outline for BIOS1171 Neuroscience.
- Once you have received approval from UTS, complete the online Health Sciences Undergraduate Cross Institutional application available from University of Sydney. You will need the approval letter from UTS plus some other documents (refer to instructions online) to complete this.
- Upon approval, the University of Sydney will send out an enrolment pack. Help in completing these forms is available from the University of Sydney, Cumberland Campus - Student Central (p +61 2 9351 9161).
- When you receive your results from the University of Sydney at the end of the teaching session on concurrent study, you must submit the copy of the concurrent study approval notification and a certified copy of an academic transcript with the grading system issued by the institution. This must be submitted to the UTS Student Centre so that the credit can be transferred to your record at UTS.
