Re-enrolment for continuing students

Web banner showing the steps to enrol or re-enrol. Over an orange background it shows a path that goes through the fours steps to re-enrol. 1. Find your program structure or study plan, 2. Plan your academic year, 3. Complete your Student Enrolment Checklist and 4. Enrol for Semester 1 and Semester 2

If you are a continuing student, you need to re-enrol each year to confirm your place in your program, and what courses you’ll be studying in the coming year. It's important that you enrol for both Semester 1 and Semester 2.

Re-enrolment opens 9 am 17 October

Timely re-enrolment closes 9am 23 January. You must re-enrol by this date to continue your studies and avoid a late re-enrolment fee.

This re-enrolment information is for continuing coursework students. If you are a new student commencing in 2023, visit the new student enrolment page. If you are a graduate researcher, contact the Graduate Research School.

1. Find your program structure or student plan

A program structure is the formal structure of your degree and reflects the requirements of your program based on a full-time study load. A student plan is a structure that has been personalised to you.

As a continuing student, we recommend using your student plan to enrol.

Find your student plan by searching 'student plan' in your student inbox. Your student plan will have yellow and white sections indicating different semesters. It will also have a semester highlighted BOLD, based on the date it was created. If you have already completed the BOLD term, or subsequent terms as planned, simply enrol in the courses that correspond to Semester 1 and Semester 2 2023.

Program structures reflect the formal requirements of your degree based on a full-time study load. Some programs are very structured and you need to complete certain courses in order to graduate. In these programs, you will simply enrol in the courses that you are required to study. Other programs give you more flexibility to choose elective courses.

They are available on the website and updated each year by your Institute and Program Coordinator. Program structures are a useful tool and a guide to choosing and enrolling in your courses.

Your program structure will show you:

  • A full-time study load broken down into each year of study and then into semesters. If you’re a part-time student, you will need to adapt the program structure and you may need to seek additional guidance from your program coordinator
  • Which courses are compulsory and which are elective. Where electives are indicated, there may be suggestions in the program structure about which course you can choose
  • Whether there is a pre-requisite course that you must have completed first or a co-requisite course you must study at the same time
  • Whether a course is excluded if you’ve previously studied a similar course

A program structure will not show:

  • how to enrol if you have received credit for prior study
  • what to modify in your structure to switch to part-time study or take a leave of absence
  • your elective options unless you must choose from an approved list for your program
  • how to enrol if you have not completed a planned course either due to a fail grade or withdrawn before or after census
  • how to enrol if you have missed a placement due to availability or failure to provide mandatory document

Program structures are available on each Institute's website under Student Resources. You can go directly to your program structure via the list below.

Please note: if you have a choice of a Semester 1 or 2 program structure, choose the semester you started your program in, not the semester you’re enrolling into. For example, if you started your program mid-year in Semester 2 2022 and are enrolling into Semester 1 2023, choose a Semester 2 program structure.

A student plan is a personalised enrolment plan that helps you apply your program structure to your personal circumstances. They are available from our Student Administration team and generated before the census date of your first semester, as well as when you need to make changes to your program.

Student plans are a personalised tool and a guide to choosing and enrolling in your courses.

Your student plan will show:

  • The requirements of your course broken down into each year of study and then into semesters.
  • The order and number of courses to enrol in each semester in order to meet the conditions of your program based on your circumstances. For example if you have failed a pre-requisite it will show you how to enrol to repeat the course, and when you can enrol in the next course; or if you're studying part-time it will show you which courses to enrol into in each semester to complete your degree part-time.
  • Which courses are compulsory and which are elective. Where electives are indicated, there may be suggestions in the program structure about which course you can choose.
  • Whether there is a pre-requisite course that you must have completed first or a co-requisite course you must study at the same time.
  • Whether a course is excluded if you’ve previously studied a similar course.

Enrol using your student plan

You may have had many student plans generated and emailed to your student inbox at different points in your studies. Always use your most recent student plan.

Go to your student email inbox and search 'student plan' to find your most recent student plan.

Your student plan will have yellow and white sections indicating different semesters, these are a visual guide to semesters and not an indication of what you should enrol into. It will also have a semester highlighted BOLD, based on the date it was created. If you have already completed the BOLD term, or subsequent terms as planned, simply enrol in the courses that correspond to Semester 1 and Semester 2 2023.

Student plans are sent to your student inbox

All new students receive a student plan before the census date of their first semester. This student plan will apply to your whole degree if you are continuing your studies under the same circumstances you started,  for example, you're continuing with the same student load (full- or part-time) and haven't failed or withdrawn from any courses in the previous year.

Go to your student email inbox and search 'student plan' to find your most recent student plan.

Your student plan will have yellow and white sections indicating different Semesters, these are a visual guide to semesters and not an indication of what you should enrol into. It will also have a semester highlighted BOLD, based on the date it was created. If you have already completed the BOLD term, or subsequent terms as planned, simply enrol in the courses that correspond to Semester 1 and Semester 2 2023.

You may have had many student plans generated and emailed to your student inbox at different points in your studies. Always use your most recent student plan.

You'll automatically receive a student plan:

  • before the start of your first semester if you received credit for prior study
  • before the census date of your first semester for all new students
  • after you have failed a course
  • if you withdraw before or after the census date, therefore changing the number of courses still to complete

You can request a new student plan when:

  • you wish to change your study load to part-time or back to full time
  • when returning from a leave of absence
  • you want to check you're on track to graduate at a particular time
  • you need to change your major, minor or specialisation, or if you need help selecting courses within these
  • you need advice about cross-institutional enrolment
  • you have been approved by your program coordinator or via expression of interest to complete a Semester Long Exchange or participate in a short study tour

When you need a new student plan

You will require a new student plan only if your circumstances have changed, for example, you would like to change your study load; take leave; change your major, minor or specialisation; or fail or withdraw from a course. You can request a new student plan from our Student Administration team via the Enquiry and Application Portal or through a one-to-one booking. Due to the complexity of enrolment and progression advice, student plans are not available through walk-in enquiries or calls.

If you can't find your student plan, but there is a program structure that reflects your study load and circumstances, you can enrol using the program structure available and do not need to request a new student plan.

2. Plan your academic year

It's important to plan for the full year ahead so that you understand any program requirements, and make the most of work-integrated learning or study overseas.

Consider course rules, work-integrated learning, and electives or if you'd like to study overseas, change your study load or get extra support.

Skip this step if you know what you need to enrol in and understand the different courses and requirements of your program structure or student plan.

Many programs include required placements, internships or professional practice. These are all forms of work-integrated learning (WIL)

You must check your program structure or student plan for these WIL courses so that you know what to expect in the year ahead.

Identifying required work-integrated learning (WIL) in your program structure

These required components will be included in your program structure or student plan. They may appear as:

  • Professional Practice, or 'Discipline' Practice, e.g. Arts Practice, Nursing Practice
  • Professional Experience
  • Clinical Practice
  • WIL course
  • Work Integrated Project
  • Internship
  • Project
  • Placement

Enrol in work-integrated learning (WIL) for Semester 1 and Semester 2

Enrol in all WIL courses for the upcoming academic calendar, including Semester 2, Summer, Late Summer, Winter or Spring Semester. Enrolling lets our team know you intend to complete your work-integrated learning as scheduled and that a spot in an organisation or on a project will be needed for you.

Preparing for work-integrated learning (WIL)

Within 24 hours of enrolling, your WIL course will appear in InPlace, our WIL management system.

Work-integrated learning requires additional mandatory documents depending on the type of WIL you are completing and industry you will be working in. These documents should be completed as soon as possible after enrolling, and before the census date of the semester you will complete your WIL.

Students with general electives can choose to complete work-integrated learning (WIL) courses for credit within their degree. The following are open to students from any discipline.

Class-based courses

These courses are open to all students who have completed over 120 credit points in any subject area or degree.

  • Enrol in myStudentCentre - COOPC2001 Community Impact Project 1 – 15 credit points: This course offers students the opportunity to collaborate with a community partner in a real-life project. The host organisation identifies an issue or challenge it is facing and student participants research and propose creative and sustainable solutions.

This program provides students with an opportunity to gain valuable workplace experience in an organisational environment broadly related to their field of academic study while enhancing their knowledge and skills.

As a Federation University student, you can study on an exchange program for one or two semesters at one of our partner institutions, participate in a study tour, or undertake a short program during the summer or winter break. Generous funding is available for many of these opportunities.

Exchange

We have exchange agreements with a number of overseas universities. These agreements allow students to study at the exchange institution for one or two semesters. As an exchange student, you continue to pay tuition fees to Federation University.

Study Abroad

Students wanting to study at institutions not covered under our exchange agreements are able to do so as study-abroad students. As a study-abroad student you would enrol and pay tuition fees directly to the overseas university.

Short-term study tours

A short program provides the ideal opportunity to experience a taste of overseas study at one of Federation University’s partner universities around the world without committing to an entire semester abroad. Programs run for two to four weeks, most being offered during the semester breaks.

You could study art, culture and literature in South Korea, business in Lithuania, or environmental conservation in France!

New Colombo Plan (NCP) study tours

Study tours are intensive programs led by Federation University academics and allow you to combine international study and cultural immersion while gaining credit or clinical placement hours towards your degree. NCP tours are supported with Australian Government funding to make this an easily affordable option.

Study tours usually run for two to three weeks with most being offered during the semester breaks. They are organised by each institute and coordinated by the Mobility Office.

Overseas placement opportunities

Students may be able to do some or all of their placements overseas. Please contact your Program Coordinator to find out if opportunities are available.

Planning your overseas study

To study overseas you will need to have space available in your program structure or student plan so that the credits your receive for your overseas study can contribute to your degree. You can use overseas study as a electives, professional practice, or 'equivalents' to compulsory or specialised electives required for your program, major, minor or specialisation.

1. Find your program or student plan

Use the steps above to find your program structure or student plan.

2. Look at the time period you would like to go overseas

We recommend going overseas in your second year, or in the first half of your third. Look at these teaching periods in your program structure or student plan so that you know your program requirements. We recommend going overseas in a semester when you have more electives.

If you have all compulsory courses, you can still go overseas on exchange or study abroad if you can find equivalent courses at your preferred institution. You may also need to consider if courses are equivalents for required courses in your major, minor or specialisation, and how they impact pre-requisites for later year study.

3. Start researching and contact the Student Mobility Office

Read more about studying overseas on the Global Professional School website. You'll find information about different ways to study overseas, our partners and the application process.

Contact the Student Mobility Office at studyabroad@federation.edu.au for specialised advice and to discuss your options.

All courses that appear in your formal program structure are compulsory and are required to meet the completion requirements of your degree. Within a major, minor or specialisation there may also be compulsory courses that are part of your chosen sequence.

Pre-requisite

A pre-requisite is a course or courses that must be completed prior to undertaking another course. For example, if you fail a pre-requisite, you will have to repeat the pre-requisite before moving on to the next course. During re-enrolment, you must enrol in a course pre-requisite via the Enrolment Shopping Cart before enrolling in the course it is a pre-requisite for.

Co-requisite

A co-requisite is a course or courses that must be completed concurrently with the chosen course, i.e. you must enrol in both courses in the same semester. During re-enrolment, you must also enrol in both courses via the Enrolment Shopping Cart at the same time

Exclusion

An exclusion is a course that is equivalent to another course and so excludes students from repeating an equivalent course. During re-enrolment, you cannot enrol in a course if you are already enrolled in an exclusion for that course.

Choose your major, minor or specialisation

If your program requires a major, minor or specialisation you will need to enrol in courses that meet its requirements.

Your program structure will indicate in which semester courses contributing to a major, minor or specialisation should occur. It may use A, B, C etc to indicate where courses should occur, e.g Major A, Minor A in  Semester 1 First Year.

Choose courses

Some majors, minors or specialisations have a pre-approved course list showing the required sequence for each option. If your program structure lists specialist electives to choose from, you must use this list.

When planning your major, minor or specialisation courses for Semester 1 and Semester 2 remember to check the pre-requisites to ensure you're on track. We recommend making a list of your chosen sequence across the coming year, and for your whole degree, so that you meet the pre-requisites.

Add your major, minor or specialisation to your student plan

Book an Enrolment and Progression Advice Appointment if you need help selecting your electives or would like your prefered elective sequence added to a personalised student plan to use across your degree.

Your program structure or student plan may include electives.

Approved, specialisation and proscribed electives

Some programs will provide a pre-approved elective list within the program structure. If your program structure lists electives to choose from, you must use this list.

General electives

If 'elective' is listed on your program structure with no further requirements about discipline or pre-approved electives, you can enrol in an elective from any Institute as long as you meet the pre- and co-requisites, or exclusions of the course.

Choosing electives

To help you decide which elective(s) to choose, you can either read a short description of the course in myStudent Centre or the detailed information in the course outline.

When planning your electives for Semester 1 and Semester 2 remember to check the pre-requisites of courses. We recommend making a list of your preferred electives across the coming year, and for your whole degree, so that you meet the pre-requisites.

Sequences on a similar topic will usually share the same 5-letter code, and progress through 1XXX (Introductory) 2XXX (Intermediate), and 3XXX and 4XXX (Advanced).

Find electives

To read a short course description, log in to myStudent Centre, click on the Higher Ed Enrolment tile, click Browse Course Catalogue in the left-hand menu and then enter the Course Code with a space between the letters and numbers eg. NURBN 2020.

Find course outlines from each Institute below. Also see the section below on elective work-integrated learning courses.

Institute of Innovation, Science and Sustainability (IIS) course outlines

Add electives to your student plan

Book an Enrolment and Progression Advice Appointment if you need help selecting your electives or would like your prefered elective sequence added to a personalised student plan to use across your degree.

If your personal circumstances have changed significantly, re-enrolment is the right time to think about how to make your studies work for you.

Changing your study load

Domestic students

If you are a domestic student you can change your study load from full- to part-time depending on your program. This reduces the number of courses you complete each semester and will extend your completion date. You can choose to study one, two or three courses in a part-time semester, and can increase back to full-time if or when it suits you.

If you receive Centrelink benefits while you study, reducing your study load can impact your eligibility. To be considered as a full-time student you must be studying at least 75% of a full-time load - 45 credit points or 0.375 EFTSL in a semester (100% full-time load is 60 credit points or 0.500 EFTSL in a semester). Reducing your enrolment from four classes to three classes will usually mean no change to your current benefits.

Contact your Program Coordinator and book an Enrolment and Progression Advice Appointment

If you wish to study part-time, your program coordinator will be able to advise which courses you should continue studying, and which courses you will be able to pick up at a later date. After speaking with your Program Coordinator, book an Enrolment and Progression Advice Appointment to understand how reducing your study load will change your student plan and completion date.

Read more about changing your study load here.

International students

You are required to complete your studies on campus within the expected duration of your signed International Student Offer and Acceptance Agreement and your student visa. Federation University can only grant leave from studies for International students who have a compassionate or compelling circumstance for wishing to take leave from studies. If you wish to take leave, you should refer to the Deferment, Suspension of Cancellation of a Student's Enrolment (ESOS Specific) Procedure.

Taking leave

Taking leave provides you with the opportunity to take time out from your studies without losing your place in your program; you simply continue with your studies at the end of your period of leave.

Periods of leave are generally for either a semester or a year and may be suitable for personal circumstances such as health issues, travel, pregnancy, personal loss and changes to your employment. Read more about taking leave from studies here.

Book an Enrolment and Progression Advice Appointment to understand how taking leave will change your student plan and completion date.

Reasonable adjustments

Reasonable adjustments may support you in continuing your studies if you have ongoing medical conditions or disabilities, or changes in your personal circumstances requiring increased flexibility.

A reasonable adjustment is an action or measure the University takes to assist a person to participate in their educational course or program as far as possible on the same basis as others.

Federation University can provide reasonable adjustments to students based on their protected attributes, for example:

  • Students with disabilities may require adjustments and flexibility so that barriers to their participation are removed, e.g. assistive technology, equipment, or changed work practices.
  • Students with responsibilities as carers may need some study flexibility to accommodate their caring responsibilities.
  • Students may need flexibility to accommodate religious or cultural obligations, for example time away for an important ceremony.

Help is available to explore how to provide flexibility whilst studying, what might be possible, and what is reasonable. Students are encouraged to contact Student Equity and Inclusion to discuss their needs.

3. Complete the Student Enrolment Checklist

Each year you need to complete the Student Enrolment Checklist before enrolling for the first time. It will take 2-5 minutes to complete.

What is a Unique Student Identifier?

Your Unique Student Identifier (USI) is your individual education number for life. It also creates an online record of your Australian training achievements.

You need a USI if you are:

  • a higher education student seeking Commonwealth Assistance including CSP, HECS-HELP, SA-HELP or FEE-HELP
  • a higher education student graduating in 2023 or beyond.
  • Undertaking TAFE Nationally Recognised Training

All continuing students need to provide Federation University with their USI as part of the Student Enrolment Checklist, unless studying offshore.

Find your Unique Student Identifier

As a continuing student, it's likely we already have your USI. You only have to provide your USI if it is not already in our system.

If you already have a USI, you can find it here.

To create a USI, use the Australian Government USI Student Portal to create a USI.

4. Enrol for Semester 1 and Semester 2

Re-enrolling confirms your place for 2023. You should enrol even if you are still waiting for your results, or on the outcome of an application to study overseas or changes to your studies.

    For example, if a course has a co-requisite, add it to your Enrolment Shopping Cart so that you can enrol in both at the same time.
    If the course has a pre-requisite that you have not completed, review your program structure or study plan to check when it should be completed. If you are trying to enrol in Semester 2, check that you have already enrolled in any Semester 1 pre-requisites.

You must complete your enrolment for Semester 1 and Semester 2 before the timely re-enrolment date (9 am 23 January to avoid losing your place in your program and/or incurring a late enrolment fee). Enrolling for the full academic year gives you time to plan the year ahead, and is a requirement of your studies with us.

Enrolling for work-integrated learning and professional practice placements for Semester 1 and Semester 2 also lets our team know you intend to complete these as scheduled and that a spot in an organisation or on a project will be needed for you, This increases your chance of securing your preferred placement.

There may be a hold placed on your account. Holds are placed on your account in certain circumstances including non-payment of fees or late fees on library books.

Check if you have a hold on your account

  1. Return to the myStudentCentre hompage
  2. Select the Tasks & Holds tile.
  3. Review any pending tasks or holds.

Resolve a hold on your account

If you have a hold, resolve it by taking the action requested in the hold. It may take 24-48 hours for the hold to be removed, and for your access to enrol be reapplied.

If you have no holds on your account, or your hold has been resolved for longer than 48 hours, our friendly team at Student HQ can help. Find out how to connect to our team on the Student HQ homepage. We recommend using the online chat during business hours.

During 'Step 1. Add courses to your Enrolment Shopping Cart', you will need to select a semester to enrol into.

If you are returning from leave, or have made changes to your studies, our system may not have been expecting you and your account will need to be 'term activated' for the correct semesters.

If no semester appears, or the semesters are incorrect, our friendly team at Student HQ can help. Find out how to connect to our team on the Student HQ homepage. We recommend using the online chat during business hours.

If any course appears with a red cross after trying to drop classes

  1. Check the course rules associated with the course
  2. Coordinate the dropping of courses depending on if the course is a pre- or co-requisite.

Pre-requisite

A pre-requisite is a course or courses that must be completed before undertaking another course. If the course is a pre-requisite for another course you are enrolled in, you must drop the course it is a pre-requisite for before you drop the pre-requisite. For example, if a course in Semester 2 has multiple pre-requisite options and you would like to enrol in a different pre-requisite, you must drop both the course it is a pre-requisite for, and the pre-requisite. You can then re-enrol in your new pre-requisite and the associated course.

Co-requisite

A co-requisite is a course or courses that must be completed concurrently with the chosen course, i.e. you must enrol in both courses in the same semester. If you want to drop a co-requisite, you must drop both courses at the same time.

Completed your re-enrolment?

If you've completed all four steps to re-enrol - congratulations, and welcome back to Victoria's #1 University for Skills Development (undergraduate and postgraduate), Undergraduate Starting Salary, and Student Support (undergraduate).
