IPT for the Faculty of Science

On this page, you can find undergraduate programs in the Faculty of Science available for Internal Program Transfer (IPT).

NOTE: if you completed one or more courses in Term 1, 2020 that shifted to SY grade basis due to COVID-19 disruptions, adjusted criteria may be applied. 
You can view the Science Faculty's IPT adjustments at https://www.science.unsw.edu.au/study-us/student-resources/covid-19-transitional-arrangements-science-students


 *There are a number of programs that have been updated with a T2 intake, effective from 2021

Please note:

  • Applications will be considered based on information available at the time applications are assessed. As there is a specified period in which applications are assessed and a decision made, that decision cannot be delayed – i.e. it cannot be made after the assessment period has closed. Similarly, there is no provision for considering late results.
  • These programs are not available in Summer Term.
  • When assessing credit transfer, the maximum number of courses that you are eligible for will be granted. If you do not wish to have specific courses transferred, please indicate this in the comments.
  • If you're in your final term, please do not submit an IPT application; instead, please contact Science Student Services requesting an IPT to graduate.
