Hi Guys,
I'm in year 12 and not sure how this transferring stuff works. I'd like to do aerospace/aeronautical engineering at USYD or UNSW, however I just think I won't get in. Could anyone give me like a run down on how transferring works as I think the only option is to go to maquarie uni and do something like mechanical or civil engineering their and transfer to my desired course. Would this even be possible? or is there a better route? Help and suggestions much appreciated.

The most important part is ensuring that your marks are high enough at Macquarie in case you are able to transfer from Macquarie to USyd or UNSW so that you can meet USyd/UNSW requirements.

Have you tried contacting MQ and UNSW/USyd about this? I'm sure they can provide you with some very useful and relevant information.

Best route is the one that will give you a solid backup, in case the route doesn’t work out. That would be doing mechanical (probs the closest to aero) at a different uni then transferring across to aerospace. If the marks aren’t great, then you have the great option of continuing to a mech career.

Another way is to do an “easy” degree (tbh no degree is objectively easier - it depends on the person) at USyd or UNSW and then internally transfer. The internal transfer marks would be slightly lower BUT if you don’t do well in the degree, then you’re a little stuck. You’d rather be a mechanical engineer than stuck doing an Arts degree which you never wanted in the first place.

I understand, thanks for your help.

Thanks, I'll try that.
