IPT for Faculty of Law

Here you can find undergraduate programs in the UNSW Law Faculty available for Internal Program Transfer (IPT).

For students in non-Law programs

UNSW Law will guarantee a minimum of 100 places for applicants to enrol in a Law dual degree via Internal Program Transfer (IPT). UNSW students who

  • have completed a minimum of 48 units of credit (UOC) at UNSW and
  • have not failed any course

will be eligible to apply for an internal program transfer to a Law dual degree program. For entry into Law in 2018, applicants will be assessed solely on their UNSW studies. Excellent students from all UNSW Faculties are encouraged to apply.

Important information for students who have completed more than 48 UOC, applying for IPT to dual Law:

  • Timetabling for transfer students is based on the expectation that transferring students will have completed 48 UOC only of their partner degree. Due to sequencing and pre-requisites students transferring to dual law with more than 48 UOC are not guaranteed a full-time timetable.
  • Students eligible to graduate from their current degree program are not eligible for an IPT place in dual law. Those eligible to graduate from their current degree should apply instead for the Juris Doctor program via Universities Admission Centre (UAC).
  • Students currently in an International Studies program wishing to apply for an internal program transfer to the dual law program will not be permitted to take program leave or defer their dual law offer to commence in Semester 2, 2018 if they are going on an overseas exchange in Semester 2, 2017 and Semester 1, 2018.  If the student receives an IPT offer to the dual law program and wishes to accept the offer to commence in Semester 1, 2018, they will be required to forgo their International Studies program and transfer to another dual law degree program.

Please note:

  • All applications for internal transfer will be considered on the basis of information available at the time applications are assessed. There is no provision for considering late results or for delaying decisions.
  • For students in non-Law programs, transfer to a Law dual degree program is only available in Semester 1.

For current Law dual degree students

Current Law dual degree students wishing to transfer to a different Law dual degree program e.g. Arts/Law to Science/Law are eligible to transfer and do not compete with other internal program transfer applicants.

Internal program transfer between dual law programs are generally approved except for students who are on poor academic standing. Applications from students with poor academic standing will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
