Frequently asked questions

What is the admissions policy at Macleay?

The criteria for admission to our courses are detailed in our Admissions Policies. You can view the Admissions Policy for domestic students here, or international students here.

If I enrol as a full-time student, can I change to part-time study after I’ve started the course?

You may change your study load from full-time to part-time and vice versa during your studies. However, to avoid academic and/or financial penalty, you should make any changes to your enrolment prior to Census Date for that trimester.

Can I defer the start of my course?

You can defer the start of your course for up to a maximum of 12 months. If you want to defer for a longer duration, you’ll be required to withdraw from the course and re-apply when you are ready to recommence your study at Macleay College.

I have completed subjects at another institution. Can I get credit towards my course at Macleay College?

If you have studied at a university or other tertiary institution, you may be eligible for course credit for the subjects you have completed. This is known as Recognition of Prior Learning (or RPL) and may result in course credit via the grade ‘Advanced Standing’. Advanced Standing recognises your previous study and may reduce the number of subjects required to complete your course at Macleay College.

How many hours do I have to do for my internship/work placement? Do I get paid for it?

Both diploma and bachelor students are required to complete a minimum number of internship hours dependant upon the course of study. However, you are encouraged to do more intern hours in order to increase job-readiness after you graduate. Find out more about our Internship Program and the hours required by course here.

Will the College help me get my internship/work placement?

We constantly receive offers from employers requesting interns. Our lecturers are industry practitioners and can also help you to find work placement in an area of your interest. However, it is recommended that you select the internship of most interest to you and make an application.

How can I pay my course tuition fees?

Domestic students can pay course tuition fees either with an upfront invoice, via the FEE-HELP loan system, or a combination of both.  International students must pay upfront.

What is FEE-HELP?

FEE-HELP is a Commonwealth Government loan scheme that helps eligible students pay their tuition fees. If eligible, you can borrow up to the amount of the tuition fee being charged by your provider for your subject of study. However, over your lifetime you can borrow only up to the FEE-HELP limit (this amount is indexed each year). The Commonwealth Government will pay the amount of the loan directly to the College. You then repay your loan through the taxation system once your income is above the minimum threshold for compulsory repayment. Find out more by downloading the 2020 FEE-HELP Guide here.

How do I apply for FEE-HELP?

To apply for a FEE-HELP loan, you’ll need a Tax File Number and a ‘Request for FEE-HELP Assistance Form’. Find out more about applying for FEE-HELP by downloading the FEE-HELP Guide here and visiting the Study Assist website here.

Do Macleay graduates find jobs after they finish their course?

Many of our graduates find jobs soon after graduation and some are offered work as a result of their internships. View some of our graduate success stories here.
