Internal Course Transfer
You can apply for an internal course transfer if you want to transfer from one coursework degree to another in Monash Malaysia. You can only transfer between the same course level (e.g. from one bachelor degree to another bachelor degree) and only if you haven't completed your course. If you are completing your current course and wish to enrol in a new course, you will need to apply again as a new student. For more details, please refer here.
To be eligible for a course transfer, you must:
- be a current Monash student (you must maintain your enrolment)
- meet the prerequisites for the new course
- perform at an appropriate level in your current course
- successfully completed at least 12 credit points of your current course
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
A change in course requires international students to apply for a new Student Pass. The following are student pass requirements for the change of course as provided by EMGS.
- Changing of course is only allowed during your first year of study. International students need not leave Malaysia when applying for a student pass to reflect this new course.
- If you are applying for a change in course after your first year of study, you are required to exit Malaysia and apply for a student pass with the new course name while overseas.
- Application for a new student pass due to a change of course is permitted up to a maximum of two times throughout your period of study in Malaysia
All student pass application approvals are subject to Immigration Department of Malaysia’s discretion. Please read the information regarding the change of course FAQs and requirements by EMGS here.
The actual requirements for transfer may be higher
These are set by the Managing Faculty, including the number of completed credit points required to be considered for a transfer. Check the course transfer requirements carefully with the Course Management Office, before making an application for a transfer.
