Quota Subjects

Several subjects offered by the University are termed 'quota subjects' or 'quota restricted subjects'. These are usually laboratory or fieldwork subjects where enrolment capacity is limited by available resources. The School of Biomedical Sciences have a number of undergraduate quota subjects.

Selection

Selection into quota subjects is based on academic merit. Selection will often use your overall course average marks, however the major/stream, course or results in a specific discipline area may also be used.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Enrolling in a quota subject through your study plan DOES NOT guarantee a place. Email notification will be sent to advise the outcome of your application.

EXTERNAL APPLICANTS: External applicants (Community Access Program, cross-institutional and enabling) will be considered under a separate quota.

Application Process for Internal Students

  1. Enrol in the subject via my.unimelb by the application deadline. Students who meet the requisites but are unable to enrol via the portal should submit an Enrolment Variation form.
  2. Selection will occur after the application deadline
  3. Once selection has been finalised, applicants will receive notification of their application outcome via email. It is expected that the notification will be sent out within 7-10 business days.
  4. Unsuccessful applicants will be removed from the subject and advised via email.

Notes:

  1. If you do not have the prerequisites for a subject and wish to apply, you will need to obtain written coordinator approval to enrol in the subject. Please note that it is unlikely that subject coordinators will grant a prerequisite waiver unless they are satisfied that you have background knowledge equivalent to the subject’s prerequisites. Once a prerequisite waiver has been obtained, you need to submit an Enrolment Variation form.  Note that obtaining a requisite waiver to apply for the subject does not guarantee a place in the subject; it simply allows you to be considered in the selection process.
  2. BCMB20005 Techniques in Molecular Science: Students enrolled in this subject before the application deadline listed below and who have an H2A or above in CHEM10006 (Bachelor of Biomedicine) or both CHEM10003 and CHEM10004 (Bachelor of Science) are guaranteed a place in the subject.
  3. Where a quota subject is core to a major: if a student has nominated the major on their study plan and already successfully completed at least one core subject at the time of selection they will not be restricted from completing their major (ie - given priority during selection rounds). Students still need to ensure they follow the application process in a timely manner.
  4. Students who miss the Round 1 application deadline will need to wait for Round 2 to open. Students who miss the Round 2 application deadline will need to contact the Subject Coordinator. If places are available you may be approved straight away, if no places are available you may be able to be added to the waitlist.
  5. Students who apply and are unsuccessful in Round 1 will need to re-enrol during the Round 2 application dates to be considered for Round 2 selection.

Application Process for External Applicants (CAP/Enabling/Cross-Institutional)

  1. Submit complete application by the application deadline (including all required documentation).
    Minimum Required Documentation: Transcripts for all undergraduate and honours study, up to and including, end of 2016 results. If you are a current University of Melbourne you must also submit Written evidence that your faculty will allow you to study the CAP subject/s that you have applied for. This can be obtained from Stop 1.
  2. Selection will occur after the application deadline.
  3. Once selection has been finalised, applicants will receive notification of their application outcome via email. It is expected that the notification will be sent out within 7-10 business days.
  4. Late applications for quota subjects will not be accepted.
