Check the steps you need to follow before and after the application process for a change of major, minor or specialisation at Macquarie.
If you are intending to make a change to your major, minor or specialisation it is recommended that to do this as early as possible in your studies so that you have enough space available in your study plan to facilitate this change. Due to a number of factors, any change that you make to your study plan may extend the time required to complete your degree.
It is strongly recommended that you discuss your intention to make any changes to your study plan with an Academic Adviser in your Faculty prior to submitting an application. An Academic Adviser will be able to assist if you are unsure about any aspect of your study plan including the major, minor, specialisation, and/or concentration requirements.
You may also consult the Course Handbook for specific course requirements.
You should seek support from your faculty prior to submitting an application to determine whether your requested change to your study plan will result in an extension to the duration of your course.
If your course duration is extended, this may impact your visa and you must seek advice from Student Advocacy and Support Services.
If you are an international sponsored student (ie a non-Australian government sponsor pays your tuition fees) you MUST get permission from your sponsor to make the change you are requesting before submitting your application.
If you need further assistance, contact Student Advocacy and Support Services.
If you have completed units in your Core Zone towards a minor and would like to complete a different minor, submit a request to either change or remove your minor. The completed units will be moved into your Flexible Zone, provided you have sufficient space remaining for these units.
Note that minors completed within a course’s Flexible Zone will not be displayed as a separate structure in eStudent. Any completed minor should be nominated on your Expect to Complete form.
