Admission to many courses is available on the basis of a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. Applicants may apply for admission to the University on the basis of meeting General Entry Requirements (GER).
GER is met when Tasmanian Certificate of Education applicants have SA results in at least four Tasmanian Qualifications Authority (TQA) level 3 accredited courses; a Year 11/12 ATAR or are eligible for concessional entry.
The University has approved arrangements for recognising senior secondary results (TCE and VET) for students who do not qualify for an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) through completing two years post-compulsory study and completing the required minimum four TCE pre-tertiary subjects for university entry. Applicants are allocated a notional TE score based on their studies.
Applicants with an ATAR or eligible for concessional entry meet GER.
Completion of the IBD meets GER.
Completed qualifications equivalent to the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) meet GER.
Applicants who have followed the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum, other non-standard curriculum and home schooled students will be individually assessed and may meet GER.
Applicants who have completed a Certificate III or above meet GER, provided the Certificate III is in a relevant discipline.
Applicants with completed prior university study undertaken at university diploma level or above, or AQF equivalent meet GER.
Applicants with partial University study at Associate Degree level or higher with a passing GPA (ie 4.0/7.0) based on a 37.5% study load over 1 semester or a 50% study load over two semesters meets GER.
Applicants with partial University study who have failed some subjects require review before proceeding to offer.
Successful completion of all units in a university enabling program meets GER.
Aptitude tests, including STAT, may meet GER.
Applicants who have not successfully completed senior secondary, tertiary or TAFE/VET study, but have other relevant work experience and background are required to complete a supporting statement and demonstrate how that experience meets the University's General Entry Requirements. GER is met if the applicant can demonstrate sustained employment background or work and life experiences that demonstrate a capacity to succeed in their chosen course of study.
