Admission requirements

Learn all about our general entry requirements, as well as alternate pathways to university.

Before you begin your application, please check that you meet the relevant entry requirements.

  • The General Entry Requirements of the University are available below.
  • Individual courses may have additional selection requirements, like interviews or auditions or course quotas. You can find out more on each course page.
  • As part of your application, you may be asked to provide supporting documentation if you need additional evidence to meet our General Entry Requirements. Find out more about our documentation guidelines.

We encourage you to apply for the courses you most want to study. If you don’t meet these requirements right now, we have a number of pathway programs available and will work with you to determine the best pathway for you. These programs will prepare you for university and help you transition into the course you’re interested in.

General Entry Requirements

Domestic students

When considering applications, we take a range of educational backgrounds into account. These fall under our General Entry Requirements (GER).

We encourage you to apply for the courses you most want to study. If you’re not eligible to enter your chosen course right now, our admissions team will work with you to find the best pathway option.

You meet the GER if:

Tasmanian

You’ve completed th Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) and have SA results in at least four Level 3 or Level 4 subjects accredited by TASC.

Interstate

You’ve completed an interstate senior secondary certificate and have an ATAR.

You've successfully completed the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

The relatively late release of IB results in January each year won’t disadvantage you. We can obtain your results directly from the IB Information System if your school IB Coordinator gives the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) your permission. Please make sure your school IB Coordinator gives the IBO your authority to release your results us directly.

If we cannot obtain your results from the IBO, you’ll need to provide a copy of your official transcript to us.
