Enrolling in subjects
2021 enrolment update - enrolling in subjects and allocating classes
Previously, enrolment into subjects and class allocation have opened at the same time. This year, additional time is needed between the two steps to build a timetable that responds to the changing environment and meets anticipated social distancing requirements. Read on for key dates and other important information.
You must be formally enrolled in a subject to complete it.
Subjects can fill up quickly, so enrol in subjects as soon as enrolment opens for you.
When to enrol
If you’re new to your course, enrol as soon as you accept your offer. For more info, see commencing students.
When re-enrolment opens for you depends on your course:
- Standalone course: re-enrol from the date that enrolment opens for your faculty
- Course combined with Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation: re-enrol from the date that enrolment opens for the faculty that your course is combined with
- Combined course (except for Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation): re-enrol from the date of your course’s owning faculty. To check your course’s owning faculty, go to the handbook entry for your combined degree. The owning faculty is the faculty in the page banner above the degree name

Before you enrol
Before you enrol in subjects, take some time to:
Review your course
Look at your course structure, recommended sequence and completion requirements in the UTS Handbook so you know which subjects you need to enrol in (use the handbook from the year that you started your course).
If you course has electives or majors, use the UTS Handbook to research the kind of subjects you want to do as electives or subjects you need to do for your chosen major.
Think about your study load
Less than a full-time study load may affect your course duration and currency of knowledge when you graduate, Centrelink payments, travel concession, scholarship, and student visa requirements (international students only).
How to enrol in subjects
Make sure you enrol in subjects for all sessions:
- Summer (optional)
If your plans change later, you can make changes to your enrolment, keeping in mind the following important dates:
- Last day to enrol for the current session is the last day you can add a subject or make changes to your subject activities (such as swapping a class time)
- Census date for the current session is the last day to withdraw from a subject without academic or financial penalties
To enrol in subjects, log in to My Student Admin:
- In the ‘Personal’ tab, update your contact and personal details (make sure you always keep these details up-to-date)
- In the ‘Subjects’ tab, go to ‘Enrol/Plan subjects’
- Using the recommended sequence for your course (use the UTS Handbook entry for the year you started), select subjects for the Autumn, Spring and Summer (optional) sessions
- After you’ve selected all of your subjects, click ‘enrol’, then ‘confirm enrolment’
You can also follow the video below:
Hi everyone. In this video, I will show you how to enrol in subjects and choose your major. Let’s get started!
Go to your My Student Admin, log in with your student ID and password, once you log in, you will see this home page. Click on your Subjects tab.
And you will see your currently enrolled subjects. In this example, we’re going to enrol in subjects for the following year.
Firstly, click on Enrol in subject, save the declaration form, and it will take you to your study plan page.
If you can’t find any subjects to enrol like in this example, don’t worry. Most of the time, you just need to add your major or elective subjects on your study plan and your subjects will appear here.
If you are not sure about which subject to enrol, or what major or stream you want to do, you can click on Course program to view the structure of your degree in the UTS Handbook.
In this example, you can view the second year subjects and the sequences here.
Okay, let’s go back to the study plan.
To add a major or subject, please click on Choose button.
These are the options you can choose from. Decide which one to do, and click on Add to Study Planner. You can confirm the details of the major or subjects on the right.
Please note that, depending on your course, once you save anything to your study plan, you may not be able to change them, so be careful and do your research on the UTS Handbook before saving.
If you are okay with the option you selected, click on Save to Study Plan.
Now your new major and subjects are on your study plan!
Subjects showing Enrol are available for enrolment.
Subjects with a Planned status are NOT available for selection. It means either the subject is full, not offered, or you don’t currently meet its pre-requisites. You can check why it’s not available by clicking on Unavailable, or Requisites information link.
If you have been following the recommended subject sequence, but the subject you need to enrol into is a core subject and full, send an eRequest to the Student Centre for further assistance.
Okay, let’s select and enrol in subjects.
Check the tick box Enrol for the subject you wish to enrol into. This will highlight the subject in yellow.
If the subject is running in more than one session, like this one, it will display a drop down of available sessions. Select the session you wish to take the subject.
When only one availability is appearing, it means the subject is only available in the specific session, or other sessions are already full.
You may see both Block and Internal modes come up. The internal mode means it is a standard mode subject, and the subject is offered throughout the semester. The block mode means it is an intensive study mode and normally offered within a shorter period.
When you have chosen your subjects for enrolment, click Enrol to continue the process.
Any selected subjects without issues will appear in yellow, but if there is any error, the system will give you a reason why you can’t enrol in it.
In this example, you don’t currently meet the pre-requisites.
Once you confirm the potential enrolment list, click on Confirm enrolment button.
Alright, now you’re enrolled!
Repeat this process and complete your enrolment as per the recommended structure in the handbook.
We also strongly recommend you to enrol for the whole year, including both Autumn and Spring sessions. For example, If you leave the Spring enrolment late, many subjects may become full and you may not be able to choose a subject you want.
For more information, please visit the Enrolling in subjects page on the UTS website, or contact UTS Student Centre.
