Step 4: Check you meet the entry requirements
You need to meet specific entry requirements to be considered for entry to each of our courses. Check the entry requirements tab in your course information for more details.
For all of our courses, you need to either have completed Australian Year 12 (or equivalent), or be aged 17 or older and be applying on the basis of your previous study or work experience.
For most of our courses, entry is based on your ATAR score or your rank, which is calculated based on your qualifications and experience. If you are unsure whether you meet the entry requirements, or if you are uncertain about your ATAR or rank, please contact our student advisers for more information and support.
Some courses have other entry requirements, like auditions, interviews, portfolios or questionnaires. Make sure you check your course information for application requirements and closing dates.
Step 5: Make the most of your experience - apply for a scholarship
You don't need to be academically gifted to receive financial support for your study. We offer one of the most extensive range of scholarships in Australia and encourage everyone to apply.
Step 6: See if you're eligible for credit for prior learning
You may be able to have your past studies or work experience count as credit towards your University of Tasmania course. That means you won't have to complete all of the units listed in your course structure and you may be able to graduate sooner. You need to apply separately for credit for prior learning, so make sure you check the application requirements and closing dates.
Step 7: Accept your offer
Once your application has been assessed, you will receive advice about whether you have been accepted into the course. If you are accepted, simply follow the instructions in the offer letter to secure your place at university. If you do not receive an offer, contact our student advisers for advice on alternative options for study.
