Quota restricted subjects
All subjects in the Melbourne Law Masters program are quota subjects. This means that there are a limited number of places available in each class. It is therefore advisable to enrol in your preferred subjects as soon as possible after you accept your offer of a place in a course, or as soon as the re-enrolment period opens because some subjects become fully subscribed quickly.
Priority of places
Students should note priority of places in subjects will be given as follows:
- To currently enrolled Graduate Diploma and Masters students with a satisfactory record in their degree
- To other students enrolling on a single subject basis, eg Community Access Program (CAP) students, cross-institutional study and cross-faculty study.
Enrolment is on a first come, first served basis. Every effort is made to adhere to the priority order as far as possible.
Enrolment in a subject does not guarantee you a place in the subject. If you have not been successful, you will be contacted and withdrawn from the subject. Waitlists are maintained for fully subscribed subjects.
Enrolling in subjects
- You do not have the required prerequisite
- The subject is fully subscribed; or
- It is past the last date for students to self-enrol (check the University Handbook subject page for this information).
Waitlists are maintained for subjects that are fully subscribed. If you are on the waitlist and a place becomes available you will be contacted and given a limited period of time to respond and accept or decline the place before it is offered to the next person on the list.
Students must maintain a minimum study load of one subject per semester to remain enrolled in the course. If you are waitlisted for a subject you must either enrol in an alternate subject, or apply for a leave of absence.
