New Masters students: Enrolment information

Have you accepted your offer?

After you apply to the Master of Laws or Grad Cert of Law program you will be sent an outcome to your nominated personal email address. You will need to follow the instructions in your offer to accept it, after which you will be matriculated in the program and sent your Welcome email which contains your password and Student ID.


When to enrol

Enrolment is open as soon as you receive your Welcome email with your password and student ID number.

You must enrol in a course before the last date to enrol indicated on the course listing on ANU Programs and Courses. However, you should enrol as soon as you know which courses you'd like to undertake. Course materials are made available on the Wattle course sites four weeks prior to the course intensive dates and most courses require you to undertake preliminary reading prior to the intensive.


Before you start

To assist with using the ANU Student Systems, such as ISIS, WATTLE and your ANU Email, read the ANU student system guide for new students. 


Step 1 - Select your courses

Please go to How to choose courses.

LAWS8586 Law and Legal Institutions* is a compulsory course for this program and should be completed first.

Students who have completed an Australian undergraduate law degree or Juris Doctor or equivalent are exempted from LAWS8586 Law and Legal Institutions and are required to complete an additional 6 units from the course list.

You can enrol for the full year or one course at a time and you have 5 years to complete the LLM or 3 years to complete the Grad Cert of Law.


Step 2 - Enrol in ISIS

Once you have identified the courses you need to enrol in, login to the Interactive Student Information System (ISIS).

You need to complete the Task Wizard in ISIS before progressing to enrolment.

Then go to Main Menu >ISIS > Enrolment > Enrolment to add your courses.

Step 3 - Commonwealth assistance and invoices

If you wish to apply for FEE-HELP, eligible domestic students must complete the electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) in ISIS.

  • To complete this in ISIS, go to Main Menu > ISIS > Account details > eCAF.
  • You should ensure that you have a tax file number as you need it to complete your electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF). 
  • To check that you have successfully deferred your fees to FEE-HELP please go to Main Menu > ISIS > Account Details > eCAF Print History.

Your course fees will be invoiced via ISIS at the start of each session, even if you have applied for FEE-HELP. Your fees will only be deferred to FEE-HELP after the census date for each course. You will receive an invoice notification via email. Find out more about fee requirements for new students


After you've enrolled

You can access ISIS any time to check your fees as well as final results, enrolment, Statement of Results, print official enrolment letters and obtain transcripts.



The ANU College of Law has a strict attendance policy for face-to-face intensive classes. You must attend 100% of scheduled classes, whether they are held on weekdays or weekends. We assume you have taken into account all work, family, religious and other commitments when you enrol.



Wattle is the teaching and learning site for your online course. You will gain access to Wattle course and program sites 24-48 hours after enrolment. The course sites contain information on course content, readings and assessment, convenor liaison and student forums etc. You will submit assignments in via Wattle.

The Wattle LLM & Grad Cert of Law program site - please check this regularly. It contains specific information about the program as well as past year's Course Study Guides which may help you in deciding what courses to take.



If you wish to apply for status (credit/advanced standing) for courses you have studied at another university, you must complete the Application for Credit/Status


Census dates

Each course has a Census date. If you are enrolled in a course once the course census date passes, you will remain liable for the full tuition and associated fees for that course. Each course in a non-standard session has its own individual census date. Please look up the course code on ANU Program and Courses to find the census date for that course.


University email

All students must access their ANU email account regularly - correspondence from the University will only be sent to an ANU email address. You can arrange to have your ANU email forwarded to another email account which you access daily. Please go to IT Services for information on how to set this up.
