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.
    or
  • 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.

Enrolling in subjects

Please note: Melbourne Law Masters subjects are typically single sitting intensive classes with no choice of class time. You will be automatically registered for these classes once the timetable is finalised. Certain semester-length subjects may offer a choice of classes, allowing you to select your preferred class times using MyTimetable (you will otherwise be automatically registered).
