To apply for exemptions, please complete the following exemption recommendation letter and send it to: econ-actenquiries@lists.unimelb.edu.au

Please note CT exemptions must be applied before 31 December 2023. Any unclaimed CT exemptions will no longer be valid after 31 December 2023, and students will be required to re-sit these exams to obtain relevant exemptions.
