Change your study
Students at Lincoln University can change their study direction. Once you’re enrolled in a programme, you’re not locked in
You can change your degree, major, course and even your supervisor with consultation.
Things to consider
Before you make a change to your study, there are a few things we ask you to consider:
- Will the change impact your qualification or mean it takes you longer to complete what’s required to graduate?
- Will it have any impact on how you find your study through a loan, allowance or scholarship?
- What prompts you to think about making a change? Is it because you’re not properly engaged with what you’re studying? Or are you not ‘clicking’ with your supervisor? Are you feeling overwhelmed?
- Perhaps you want to add depth to your programme? Have a look at the additional majors that can be added to most Bachelor degree programmes.
Get the right advice
Before you change anything, talk to your Course Advisor. If you’re not sure who that is, contact the Liaison team. You might also want to chat with our Careers team to see what direction your study could take you in.
If you’re struggling with study or anything else to do with student life, our Wellbeing Team will be able to help.
Making a change to study
If you’re certain that you want to change some aspect of your study, the sooner we know, the faster we can put the process in motion. Contact our friendly Student Admin team and they’ll guide you through the process.
Changing your supervisor
The first step to changing your supervisor is being clear about the circumstances behind your decision. Your course of action will also be influenced by how comfortable you are in raising your concerns. Have a chat with the Primary Supervisor first to discuss your rationale and nominate a suitable replacement. Or seek help from the Faculty Post Graduate Coordinator to negotiate the change.
Alternatively, you can chat to the LUSA Student Voice and Advocacy representative.
