1 Domestic students: Applicants who achieve the minimum ATAR for a course will be eligible for a place, provided prerequisite studies and any other specific course requirements are met. The Clearly-in Rank may vary from year to year, depending on the demand for the course and the number of places available. Only applicants eligible for special entry schemes will be admitted below the minimum ATAR. Minimum ATARs are reviewed annually.
2 Students who achieve an ATAR or notional ATAR of 99.90 or above and satisfy course prerequisites will be guaranteed a place in the Chancellor’s Scholars Program (this guarantee does not apply for the Bachelor of Music, where extra requirements apply). Students with an ATAR or notional ATAR below 99.90 may be considered depending on demand. Students must have completed an Australian Year 12 qualification or the International Baccalaureate (IB) in Australia or be an Australian citizen completing an Australian Year 12 or IB overseas in the year prior to entry (students must either enrol immediately or be granted a deferral in the year following Year 12).
3 International students: The University guarantees admission to a course when an international student achieves the required score, meets prerequisite studies, satisfies the English language requirements and there are still places available in the course at the time of acceptance. If you do not meet the guaranteed score your application will not be considered for entry. Guaranteed scores apply only if no further study has been undertaken after completion of one of these programs. Guaranteed ATARs are reviewed annually.
Domestic students completing an international qualification: The score listed should be considered a minimum score to be eligible for a place in that course. The actual standard required may be higher depending on the demand for the course and the number of Commonwealth Supported Places (CSPs) available.
4 Students who wish to pursue a major in Economics through the Bachelor of Arts degree are required to meet the maths prerequisites as determined by the Faculty of Business and Economics. Students admitted to the Bachelor of Arts who do not meet these prerequisites will not be able to undertake a major in Economics.
5 For students with English as their second language a pass in English B at the required level will be accepted as satisfying the English prerequisite. Except where specified, IB subjects must be passed to at least Grade 4 Standard or Higher Level.
