Applying to study at ACU is the first step towards achieving your goals.
To be eligible for admission to one of our programs, you need to satisfy the specific course entry requirements. These requirements include:
- subject prerequisites/assumed knowledge/recommended studies
- entry score (ATAR/OP/selection rank)
- English language proficiency
- any course specific requirements.
The entry requirements for our courses are listed under each course on our website.
Subject prerequisites/assumed knowledge/recommended studies
These are usually Year 12 subjects successfully completed to a certain achievement level, or are assumed/recommended to have been successfully completed, in order to be considered for admission to ACU courses.
The minimum selection rank required for admission to a course.
A selection rank can be assigned to recognised qualifications or other criteria such as paid work experience and special admissions test scores (age restrictions may apply). Applicants then compete for entry on the basis of merit.
If you have multiple selection ranks, we will generally consider your highest one first when competing for entry.
English language proficiency
If English is not your first language, and you haven’t undertaken Year 12 or a higher level of study taught in English in an approved English-speaking country, you may be required to demonstrate your English language proficiency.
This can be done by providing evidence of previous studies or qualifications, or by achieving specific results in one of the relevant English language tests. Visit the Admission to Coursework Programs Policy, Section 4.7 English Language Proficiency and Schedule 2 for information on ACU's English proficiency requirements, including ways to demonstrate English language proficiency.
Course specific requirements
These may require you to attend an audition, or submit a portfolio, a written statement or attend an interview, when submitting your application.
