Quota Subjects

A number of subjects offered by the University are termed 'quota subjects' or 'quota restricted subjects'. These are usually workshops or subjects with a travel component where the capacity for large enrolment is limited by available resources such as workshop space, machinery and accommodation as well as because of the mode of teaching.

This page includes information regarding closing dates and application instructions.

Application and Selection

Selection into quota subjects is generally based on academic merit or enrollment order.  For some subjects, further selection criteria apply.  Please check each subject's Handbook entry for complete selection criteria information.

Enrolling in a quota subject through your study plan does not guarantee a place. Email notification will be sent to advise the outcome of your application after completion of quota selection.
