Entry requirements

Our students are high quality because of our entry requirements. 

Academic entry requirements


For undergraduate study, there is more than one way to meet our academic entry requirements. These include high school studies, foundation studies, recognised prior study and a university transfer. Check out the ‘Alternative entry pathways’ section in our international student guide for undergraduates or check your eligibility based on your qualifications in the Undergraduate Entry table above.


For postgraduate study, you are generally required to have completed undergraduate studies at a university-type institution. You can find out the exact academic entry requirements for your program in the ‘Coursework program’ section of the international student guide for postgraduates.
