We have various options available to you if you need to take a break from your course or program of study.  Select the course type below to find out more information about our deferring and withdrawing policy and process.

Deferment of an offer prior to commencing a bachelor’s or master’s program, or deferment of study once a student has commenced study, may be permitted for up to one year (i.e., four terms/two semesters) with approval.  There are no deferring fees. Applicants who wish to apply for a longer deferment must withdraw and reapply for admission in the same manner as the original application for admission, should they wish to commence or continue study at a later date.

A student may completely withdraw an accepted offer prior to commencement, or at any time after they have commenced the course. If the student is enrolled in any units past the census date for the study period in which their withdrawal is submitted, they are liable for the full fees for those units.

A student can postpone their studies at any point by completing the Course Withdrawal / Postponement/ Transfer/ Application Form.  They can transfer twice to a subsequent intake as long as the course is completed within:

  1. a three year period for 12 and 18-month programs
  2. a four year period for 24-month programs
  3. a five year period for 36-month programs

The student can re-join at the point where a subsequent class reaches the last Unit/Module in the course that he or she has successfully completed. A re-joining fee applies at the time that the student re-joins (the fees are region-specific – please see EIT Ad Hoc Fee List). Students can only postpone and re-join a course twice. Thereafter it is treated as a full withdrawal.
