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.

Additional Information


  • Please email Jacinta Way (jway@unimelb.edu.au) with your request.
  • Please note that this subject has two February availabilities


When you submit the form it is time-stamped. The waitlist will be managed in the order in which completed forms are submitted.

If a place in the subject becomes available (i.e. after another student withdraws from the subject) it will be offered to the next student on the waitlist. Students are notified via email (FVAS quota subject offer) and will be given 48 hours to accept that offer.

A student who accepts an offer to enrol in FOOD10001 will need to complete and submit an Enrolment Variation form (http://ask.unimelb.edu.au/app/answers/detail/a_id/6038) and attach a copy of the FVAS quota subject offer email. This Enrolment Variation form must be submitted within 48 hours of the original offer.

Final replacement offers will be made on Thursday in the second week of semester 1.


The selection method is based on a student’s performance in AGRI30033 Farm Management Economics and also, if necessary, a student’s performance in the degree to date.

Students will be informed of their place in the program as soon as possible after the final exam for AGRI30033 Farm Management Economics
