Internal Transfers

Many students change programs during their study and for many reasons.

You may decide on a different career path or interest or your program may not be what you thought it would be. Perhaps you want a second try at getting into a program that you missed out on the first time around. You can even add a program to your current study load and get a Double Degree.

Please read below under ‘Important information’ for further details.

Whatever your situation is, by talking to us, we can help you understand your options.
