Applications are completed using the Manage My Degree eForm, via ISIS.
It is most important that you provide independent supporting documentation to support your claims. It is not sufficient to provide only a personal statement outlining your special circumstances, a statutory declaration or an affidavit.
Depending on your reasons for applying for reduced study load you will also need to provide a statement from a doctor, counsellor or an independent member of the community to verify your claims.
We do not require certified copies of documents to be provided during the initial application process. However, the University reserves the right to require applicants to provide original documentation subsequently. Any document submitted may be audited and is subject to verification from the issuing body.
Documentation must be in English. Where the original documentation is not in English, an official translation must be provided. Students should attach copies of the original documentation and the English translation of these documents.
Supporting documentation may include:
For medical reasons - a statement from a doctor stating:
- the date your medical condition began or changed;
- how your condition affected your ability to study; and
- when it became apparent that you could not continue with your studies.
Please Note: You should inform your doctor that the statement will be sent to ANU in support of your application.
For family/personal reasons - a statement from a doctor, counsellor or independent member of the community (e.g., a Justice of the Peace or a Minister of Religion) stating:
- the date your personal circumstance began or changed;
- how your circumstance affected your ability to study; and
- when it became apparent you could not continue your studies.
