To be eligible to apply for a course you must:
- meet the admission requirements of the institution offering the course, and
- meet the entrance requirements of the course – some courses have course prerequisites or additional selection criteria. Check the course descriptions available through the course search for individual course details.
Admission requirements may include the qualifications, studies or experience listed below. Read about those that are applicable to you:
- secondary studies in Australia or overseas, including the International Baccalaureate
- tertiary studies in Australia or overseas
- course prerequisites and assumed knowledge listed in the course descriptions (FAQ for interstate students)
- alternative entry pathways (such as tertiary preparation courses for applicants without formal qualifications)
- pathway courses (for applicants who don't meet the entry requirements for their degree course)
- employment experience (non-Year 12 students only).
For some courses there may be tests you have to take before you are eligible to apply or special requirements you need to fulfil.
You may also need to demonstrate your English language proficiency if you do not have an assessable qualification, undertaken in English, from a nominated country.
Each institution sets its own admission requirements so be sure to read the individual institution entries for details.
Remember that being eligible doesn't guarantee you a place in a course. You'll have to compete with other eligible applicants – read the selection process for more information.
