How to enrol in subjects
Step 1 - Select your subjects
Subject selection is an important step in your enrolment process that requires careful planning and consideration. Refer to the Handbook for the list of approved subjects for your course, taking note of the assessment due dates, and teaching dates, to ensure that there are no clashes with your other subjects.
Step 2 - Review subject availability
As a guide to assist you, the subject quotas webpage will be updated frequently, indicating which subjects are full and available for waitlisting.
Step 3 - Enrol via my.unimelb
Once you’ve decided on your subjects, you can select and enrol into them via your Study Plan on my.unimelb. Students can maintain their own subject enrolment via my.unimelb up until the last date to self-enrol for each subject (see relevant subject entry in Handbook for dates).
Tip: When completing your subject enrolment, your subjects should display on your Study Plan with a status of ‘Enrolled’ and be highlighted in green. If not, then you have not completed and saved your enrolment properly.
IMPORTANT: All subjects in the Melbourne Law Masters program have a strict quota, and enrolment is on first-in basis. If you are unable to enrol in a subject, it may mean that:
- You do not meet a prerequisite, as outlined in the Handbook (under Eligibility and Requirements). Waivers may be available.
- The subject is already fully subscribed. Waitlists are maintained by the Academic Support Office.
- The last date to self-enrol has passed (check the Handbook subject entry for this information). The Academic Support Office can assist with manual enrolment.
Please note that Melbourne Law School may reserve places in a subject for incoming international cohorts or where a subject is core to a specialisation with limited alternate options.
