To be assessed for entry into any of our courses, you'll need to meet the General Entry Requirements. Your course may have other specific entry requirements, which you can find on the individual course page.

Some courses have additional entry requirements such as auditions and portfolios. Others, like health courses, have entry quotas. Check your individual course page to learn more.

Quota Selection

Some of our courses are highly competitive and have a capped number of places. These are what we call "quota courses". This means that applications are assessed on merit, and we rank eligible applications based on each person's qualifications.

The following undergraduate courses are subject to a quota:

The following postgraduate (coursework) courses are subject to a quota:

Interviews and auditions

The University may ask to interview or audition you prior to selection, or to conduct other special selection processes.

If you're applying to a performance-based course, you may be required to submit a portfolio or complete an audition. You can check the entry requirements for individual course listings to learn more.

Review of Admissions Decisions

If you believe an error has been made in the assessment of your application, you can request a review by emailing

Before requesting a review, please note that meeting the minimum entry requirements for a course does not guarantee an offer. Where a minimum ATAR is used, the lowest ATAR to receive an offer for a course may change from year to year. This is based on the number of applications we receive and the number of places available.

In reviewing admissions decisions, the determination of the Executive Director Student Operations (or their delegate) is final. If you'd like a further review, you can contact the Ombudsman Tasmania or, if you're currently enrolled, you can lodge a formal complaint to the University of Tasmania.
