Are you a UTS student currently enrolled in a single degree? Do you want to give your studies a global edge? You may be eligible to transfer to a combined degree with the Bachelor of Arts in International Studies.
To be eligible for a transfer, you should:
- have successfully completed at least one year (48cp) of full-time study in your current degree
- maintain a minimum weighted average mark (WAM) of Credit in all the subjects you’ve completed in your current degree (recommended).
The transfer process
Submit an application for internal course transfer – continuing through My Student Admin. Make sure you list at least two preferences for your country major on your transfer form.
Your Faculty will need to approve the transfer. Approval is normally subject to availability in existing country majors within the International Studies degree.
Where possible, we try to place all transferring students in their first preference of country major. However, places are limited, so we can’t guarantee that you’ll get your first choice. Popular majors that often fill up include Japan, France, Latino USA and Spain.
We reserve the right to allocate places in majors based on our resources, and on our arrangements with overseas universities.
Transferring out of a combined degree
If you’re an International Studies combined degree student and you want to transfer to a single degree, you’ll need approval from the Faculty who owns your professional degree.
For example, if you’re currently studying a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, Bachelor of Science, the Faculty of Science will need to approve your transfer request to the single Bachelor of Science degree.
Transferring to another UTS degree
If you wish to transfer to another UTS degree (e.g. from Science to Business), the following guidelines apply:
- Domestic and international undergraduate students should complete an application for undergraduate study through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).
