Transfer between UNI in AU


Ali66

Hi everybody.
I have question concerning transfer between LLM programs in AU.
If I enrol to 1.5 year LLM (advanced) program in University of Queensland and after first semester of study decide to transfer to another law program (University of Melbourne, muster of public and international law) will I be able to make such transfer?
Are there any restrictions or problems with such transfer? Did anyone had similar experience?
Thanks.

hello,

I am able to assist you on a general basis but do remember the rules vary from university to university so it is best to check with the relevant university.

You will likely be able to transfer but might lose credits along the way. Most 1 year LLM programs only award students with credits for 2 out of 8 courses (or max 4 out of 8). For institutions that award only 2 out of 8, that means you would lose 2 credits. But bear in mind, an award of credits might cause you to not have sufficient courses to "form" a specialisation in your eventual program.

I am not sure if this e-mail is too brief but do contact me if you want a more in-depth explanation.

Cheers,
G

You might find that many universities provide up to 75% credit for a LLM course on condition that the degree has not been conferred.

Therefore for an 8 subject LLM you might get up to to six subjects credit.
