General admissions requirements
All students wishing to study at the University Tasmania (UTAS) must meet the minimum English language and academic entry requirements.

English Language Requirements
International applicants will be required to provide evidence of their English language ability.
For those applicants who are nationals of and currently residing in a country where English is NOT the official language, evidence of an accepted English language test must be provided (such as IELTS, TOEFL or PTE).
Alternatively, applicants can provide evidence that English has been the sole medium of instruction and examination in their most recent studies, for a minimum of 2 years, and within the last 24 months. This will be assessed by the admissions staff. Academic transcripts and a letter from your institution will be required.
Those applicants who are nationals of and currently residing in a country where English is the official language may be exempt from the two-year validity period.
