If your previous studies were not completed in English, or were completed in a country where English is not the first language, you'll need to demonstrate that you meet our English proficiency requirements.

For the required test results, check our list of English language requirements by study area.
For some of our postgraduate courses you need to have achieved a particular grade point average (GPA) in your previous course to be eligible to apply.
If your previous course was made up of units with equal credit point values, your GPA is the sum of your grades for each unit divided by the number of units you attempted.

Entry to our postgraduate courses is based on merit. Each course has a certain number of places available, and once they're all filled no more applications are considered. If your course is full you can request that your application be held over for the next admission period.
If you've applied for more than one course we'll assess your first preference listed on the application form. We'll only assess your second and subsequent preferences if you do not meet eligibility requirements for your first preference, or if the course quota is full in the case of Commonwealth supported places.
It usually takes us about two weeks to process your application. Some courses may take longer and this will be published under the entry requirement for your nominated course. If you've filled in your application incorrectly or haven't provided all your supporting documents, it may take longer.
To let you know if your application is successful, we'll email you at the address you give us on your application form.
