GDCH Students

How do I enrol?

The Graduate Diploma in Child Health (GDCH) is delivered by The Sydney Children's Hospitals Network (SCHN) in partnership with Western Sydney University (WSU). Therefore, the steps you need to follow are slightly different to what is provided by the University. This page outlines how to complete your enrolment into the GDCH. 

To accept your offer, you need to activate your student account (WesternAccount). You can access the University's online services including MyStudentRecords - your online student record, the Library, student email and more. 

On the day you receive your letter of offer, you will also receive your Western Sydney ID number and email. It’s important to set up your student account ASAP so that you can access your student email and calendar. This ensures we can get – and stay – in touch and you don’t miss any important dates or information. Click here to get the step-by-step instruction to set up your student account. 

You may defer your enrolment up to 12 months, depending on the date of your offer. Read the instructions on how to defer.

Refer to the Student Handbook for the Graduate Diploma in Child Health (4793) and choose your subjects. Keep in mind that you must complete subjects MEDI5001 to MEDI 5004 before completing MEDI6001 to MEDI6004. Once you are ready to register for subjects, head to MyStudentRecords to start. 

The Graduate Diploma does not offer recognition for prior learning. For assistance on how to register for subjects, please contact 1300 897 669 or emailing
