Forms and Documents
Find a form or resource relating to your studies in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
Form Description Timetable clash resolution Use this form to request a resolution to clashes in your timetable, such as a clash between two lectures and no alternative times. Unit overload request Use this form to request enrolment into more than the allowed maximum number of units in a semester (i.e. more than 12 units). Prerequisite waiver request Use this form if you have approval from the course coordinator to enrol without a prerequisite.
Processing of enrolment error forms
In the four weeks before each semester, more than 1000 enrolment error forms are lodged with the faculty office, therefore significant delays are possible. Please allow five working days for your request to be processed, however in peak times this may be extended. Priority is given to requests submitted for the immediate semester.
Please note: The faculty office priority in processing enrolment requests is to enrol students in their chosen courses but, not necessarily, in their chosen classes. As a result you may find that you are not enrolled in your preferred classes or that you have some unwanted timetable clashes.
In a limited number of cases the faculty office may need to move students between classes to resolve timetable clashes for core courses or to manage unexpected changes to class schedules and staff availability. If your enrolment has to be changed you will be notified via email.
If you have been successfully enrolled in your chosen course, this will be shown on your enrolment list in Access Adelaide and you will be notified via email.
It is not possible to satisfy every enrolment request. A number of classes have fixed physical constraints that cannot be exceeded without removing other students. If we are unable to enrol you into your chosen course, you will be notified via email.
