Transferring to Monash for Law
« on: January 07, 2021, 10:49:46 am »

Hey everyone,

Has anyone here transferred from studying Law at Deakin/Latrobe/Swinburne to Monash?
My goal is to end up studying Law at Monash and my two options are:

1. Go right into Law/Arts at Deakin, then transfer to Monash Arts/Law after a year

2. Go into Arts at Monash, then transfer to Monash Arts/Law after a year

What would everyone recommend? Feel free to share your own experiences as well.

I fell short of the required ATAR for Monash Law with an ATAR in the low 90s :(

Congrats on the amazing ATAR still!

If you got approx 92-93 (especially if you have any SEAS on top of that), Iíd probably still give the direct Monash Law pathway a shot and leave it at Preference #1, with the Monash Arts or Deakin Law degrees you listed in lower preferences, wherever you want them. (If you received approx 90-91, thereís a low chance but a small possibility still, given the pandemicís effects/ changes in demand. In that case, still do the same as for 92-93 but, fair warning, donít be too disappointed if you get your second preference, so make that second preference a good back up.)

If youíre of Indigenous descent, from a low SES area or have experienced financial hardship, you also might be eligible for the Monash Arts/ Commerce/ Science (Law pathway) as a VTAC preference and, if successful, may be able to slide into second year Monash Law in your second year of uni. Info on this pathway is here - from memory, this pathway only started in the previous cohort, so Iím pretty sure should still exist.

As for the transfer question: I havenít personally had any experience but generally what I hear is internal transfer e.g. Monash Arts ó> Monash Law, has a better chance of success than external transfer e.g. Deakin Law (single or double degree) ó> Monash Law in general. You also might be able to study a couple of Law units (subjects) as electives in your Arts degree and have the credit transfer process be much easier since itís units from the same uni, saving you from having to take more units to complete your degree (saving you time and money).

Good luck!

Thank you so much, that is so sweet of you :)

I still have Monash Law as my first preference and like you said, Monash Arts and Deakin Law in my 2nd and 3rd preference.

I hope I will get some SEAS points but I don't think they will get me the 98 selection rank, but I'll hope for the best! And unfortunately I am not eligible for the pathway, but thank you so much for the suggestion.

And I think I will definitely start off in Arts at Monash, you make a really good point :) Thank you so much AngelWings

Hey there :) Thanks for asking.

And unfortunately not :( I got into Monash Arts though (2nd pref).
Maybe if I'm lucky in the later rounds I'll get an offer, but my ATAR seems to just miss the lowest ATAR offer for the past few years. Its okay, I'm prepared to do Arts for a year :)

I've also been in touch with Monash, apparently last year Monash Law opened up for mid year transfers! It might be happening again this year based on numbers and all that, so I've got my fingers crossed.
