Quota Subjects

Several subjects offered by the University have limited enrolment numbers. These 'quota subjects' are usually laboratory or fieldwork subjects where enrolment capacity is limited by available resources.

FVAS Quota Subjects in 2021

In 2021 the primary selection method into these subjects is ‘first come, first served’. This is the order in which students are formally enrolled into the subjects. Please note this method does not apply to AGRI30039*

Not all subjects are expected to be fully subscribed. A quota selection process will not be applied unless student enrolments exceed the quota limit.

Should a subject reach its enrolment quota limit, the Faculty will activate a process for managing a wait list.

Note: If you cannot enrol in the subject, it may mean that the quota has been reached.
