Undergraduate Applications

Everything ready, and want to apply now?

Find your future here

Follow these steps to apply for pre-degree courses, undergraduate bachelor degrees, postgraduate coursework degrees, one-year honours postgraduate degrees, and double degree awards.

Step 1: Find a course

You can apply for up to five courses at once, and unlike other states, there is no charge to apply as a domestic student to the University of Tasmania. Even if you are thinking of applying to another university, you can still apply to us - effectively doubling your chances of success.

Step 2: Remember to include other options

Once you've selected the course you most want to study, don't forget that you can increase your chances of success by applying to other degrees that interest you. You can select up to five preferences in total. If you are applying for a course but are unsure if you will be successful, please contact our student advisers on 1300 363 864 or by emailing us at to get advice on the best alternative pathways to your chosen degree and career.

Step 3: Check important dates

Refer to key admission dates to see when applications open.

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 UTAS Information Centre 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 recognition 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.

For more information, refer to recognition for prior learning/credit/advanced standing.

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 UTAS Information Centre for advice on alternative options for study.
