Bachelor of Mining Engineering Transfer Program

This degree lets you undertake your first two years of study at the University of Newcastle before transferring to, and graduating from, UNSW.

Admission Criteria

If you’re enrolled in the Mining Transfer Program at the University of Newcastle, you must apply to UAC for admission to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Mining) at UNSW. To be eligible to be made an offer by the UNSW Admissions Office, you must have achieved a sufficient WAM.

In addition, you must:

  • Be in ‘good standing’ with the university at the time of application
  • Have passed all courses within the University of Newcastle Mining Transfer Program at the time of application
  • Pass any failed courses in later semesters at the University of Newcastle prior to admission at UNSW

The calculation of the WAM for entry admission into the UNSW will be based on all courses for which a grade has been awarded within the Mining Transfer Program. Admission is also dependent on availability of places in that term.

Advanced Standing

If you’ve successfully completed the two-year Mining Transfer Program at the University of Newcastle and met the above criteria, you’re eligible for Advanced Standing of up to a maximum of the first two stages in the Mining Engineering Program at UNSW. This requires you to complete at least the final two stages of the program at UNSW.

Successful completion of the courses in the final two stages of the program at UNSW will lead to you graduating with Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Mining).
