How to enrol

Selecting units for remote delivery

Due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions, many units of study will continue to be available for remote learning (online delivery) during 2021. Make sure you check the location code when choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean.

If you are unable to travel to campus to attend classes, you need to select units where the location is ‘RE’, meaning Remote. This means your timetable will then only display remote classes (delivered online).

If you choose a unit with the wrong location, find out how to change your units of study. You will need to make any changes to your units by the deadline to add a unit of study for the session.

Once you’re ready, enrol online by logging in to Sydney Student. Go to ‘My studies’ then ‘Enrolment’ and you’re set to go.

There are several sections to complete as part of your enrolment. You can log out and return later if you need to.

Your enrolment comes with certain conditions so it’s important to understand them.

You should also familiarise yourself with our privacy policy regarding the personal information you supply during enrolment.

You’ll be asked to:

  • review your personal details including name and date of birth. You can update these details if you need to, but you may need to upload supporting documents to do this.
  • confirm your residency and citizenship status. If these details are incorrect you will need to update them and provide supporting documents. In some situations, you may not be able to complete enrolment until we have verified these changes.

Once you've completed this section, you won't be able to go back and make further changes. If you need to update this information you can do this after you've completed your enrolment.

You'll be asked to:

  • confirm your contact details. This includes a permanent address where you live outside each semester, and a residential address where you'll be living while you study.
  • provide at least one emergency contact.

You'll also be asked some demographic questions required by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.

Depending on your course, you may need to select your program, major(s), minor or specialisation.

You'll be able to browse and select from the options available to you.

Not all students will see this step on the enrolment task.

You can’t select units held in an intensive session before the commencement date outlined on your offer letter. A session code will appear next to each unit in your unit of study selection screen telling you which session that unit falls in. You can then check the dates and codes used for each session on our study dates page.

Not all students will see this step of the enrolment task. In some situations, we will enrol you in your required units of study, for example, if you're a cross-institutional, non-award, or study abroad/exchange student.

Once you have submitted and confirmed your unit of study selections, you won't be able to go back and make further changes. If you would like to change your units of study, you can do this once you've completed your enrolment.

Here you’ll be shown a summary of your fees.

You will also be given information about your Student Services and Amenities Fee (if applicable).

You will need to:

  • confirm your expected completion date
  • review the information on travel concessions.

You will then be asked to review and confirm your enrolment information.

Once you have completed your enrolment, if you're a new student you will be asked to upload a photo for your student card.
