Change of subject

Hi, I am an international RMIT student doing a package course of Advanced Diploma of Computer Systems Engineering and Bachelor's of Computer Systems Engineering which is a 4.5 years course in total. I've already done 1st year of that course but now I wanna change my course to another package course Associate degree of Information Technology and Bachelor's of Information Technology which is 3 years course in total.
So, If I change my course to associate degree, will this create any problem to my visa?

Re: Change of subject

Hi @shahriarabir_00 - it doesn't seem likely, because according to the government's Immigration website (see https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Stud/More/Changing-courses) you will only hit problems if you transfer to a "lower" program, or change out of RMIT entirely. However, please double-check your own personal visa conditions to be sure.

 

More to the point - when are you thinking of transferring? You'll need to get approval from your School - probably the Program Coordinator. You'll then need to fill out the Program Transfer Form for international students - check out http://www1.rmit.edu.au/browse/Current%20students%2FAdmin%20essentials%2FForms%2FProgram%20change/ to find the form. This all needs to be done well in advance of semester, so if you want to do this now, you had better get started!

 

Good luck.
