Entry requirements

Domestic students must meet the University's General Entry Requirements.

International students must meet the Admission Requirements for International Students.

International students must provide one of the following: UTASAccess Level 6 with a minimum overall score of 60% and no individual skill below 55%; or an IELTS score with an overall Band of 6 and no band less than 5.5; or a TOEFL (iBT) overall score of 72 (no individual skill must be lower than: Reading 10; Listening 9; Speaking 16; and, Writing 19) or a PTE Academic overall score of 50 with no score lower than 42, or provide evidence that you have studied for 2 years full-time with English as the sole medium of instruction and examination. These tests must not be more than 24 months old.

While no subject prerequisites apply for the degree, if you have not successfully completed General Mathematics TQA 3 (MTG315115), Mathematics Methods – Foundation TQA 3 (MTM315117) Mathematics Applied TQA 3 (MTA315109) or an equivalent pre-tertiary or higher level mathematics subject, you are required to complete either UPP075 Bridging Maths, BEA109 Introduction to Quantitative Methods, XAB090 Transition Maths or KMA003 Mathematics Foundation Unit before enrolling in BEA140 Quantitative Methods, one of the degree core knowledge units in the Bachelor of Business.

International students who have not completed General Mathematics TQA 3 (MTG315115) or an equivalent pre-tertiary or higher level mathematics subject are required to undertake the unit BEA109 Introduction to Quantitative Methods.

If you have completed an AQF-recognised Diploma or Advanced Diploma in a business related discipline from an Australian TAFE or other RTO, you may be eligible for advanced standing into the degree. Advanced standing for study already undertaken within another degree at UTAS, or at an Australian or overseas tertiary institution, may also be granted.

Depending on the course of study and the major chosen, you may not be able to use all of the advanced standing for which you are eligible, for example, if advanced standing has been given for unspecified electives but you intend to complete a minor in a second discipline.

Further information on the credit policy in the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics is available at www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources/credit-for-prior-study.

In the case of international students, credit for previous tertiary study will be determined on application and, if granted, included with your offer letter.

The Bachelor of Business provides pathways to (and from) a number of other courses at the University of Tasmania:

  • Graduates from the Bachelor of Business at the University of Tasmania (or equivalent) are eligible to continue their studies in the Bachelor of Business with Honours course and will receive 300 credit points of advanced standing for their previous studies.
  • Students currently studying for a degree in another Faculty or College are able to apply to transfer to the Bachelor of Business with Honours and will be assessed for advanced standing for their previous study.

If you don't have the prerequisites for direct entry into a Business degree, an alternative entry pathway helps you get the qualifications you need to enter the course you want.

One option is to complete an Associate Degree in Applied Business through the University College, which allows students to articulate into business courses with TSBE.

An AQF-recognised Diploma, or an Advanced Diploma in a Business related discipline from an Australian TAFE or other Registered Training Organisation, is another option.
