As an externally-enrolled student, your postal address determines where you will sit your exams. If you are enrolled internally, you must sit your exam at the campus where you are enrolled.
|Postal address||Exam location|
|Less than 100km from campus where you are enrolled||On campus where you are enrolled. Check the exam timetable for details|
|More than 100km from campus where you are enrolled||Exam centre*|
|More than 100km from Australian exam centre or more than 300km from overseas exam centre||Nominated supervisor*|
* If you prefer to sit your exam on campus, you need to apply to the Exams Office at least 10 University business days prior to the start of the exam period.
Check in MyInfo > Profile to make sure your postal address is up-to-date.
If you do not live at your postal address, contact the Exams Office before the end of Week 12 for normal semester exams, or at least 10 University business days prior to the start of the exam period for all other exam periods.
Requests received after the deadline will not be accepted.
