No worries. I just had another look at the UTS website and I can confirm that they also have this requirement. However, they also have additional, less demanding requirements, which are as follows:
- 0.5 years (i.e. one semester) of full time equivalent study or more will be considered for applications to Arts and Social Sciences (except Education courses), Business, Design, Architecture and Building, Health (except Sport and Exercise Science courses) and Science courses at UTS.
- 0.2 years of full time equivalent study or more will be considered for applications to Business and Science courses at UTS.
This means that, if you intend to study a Bachelor of Business at UTS, you will likely be able to transfer after your first semester at MQ.
I also had another look at the UNSW website, and the requirement is essentially the same as that of USyd, i.e. to have your university studies considered for admission, you must complete at least one year of full-time study (minimum 0.75 full-time equivalent load) within one degree. The minimum 0.75 full-time equivalent load means that you can take as low as 6 subjects (instead of 8) at MQ in your first year and still be able to apply to UNSW. However, this may not be a good idea, because you might as well complete the other 2 subjects in that same semester, therefore allowing for a higher chance of receiving recognition for prior learning from UNSW.
I hope this clarifies it more for you
