How do I find out more?
- Start your research with the Universities Admission Centre (UAC) website (opens in a new window) and the UAC Guide. The guide provides information about specific alternative entry processes at each university.
- Ask questions! Talk to your school teachers, year advisor and/or career advisor.
- Approach university staff (admissions officer, course advisor, and disability liaison officers).
- Consider the following:
- Minimum entry criteria required of applicants
- Closing date for applications
- Selection criteria of successful applicants
- Where and how to make an application
- What documentation any applicant needs to submit
- Who to approach with any questions about your application
- Find out whether the course has entry criteria in addition to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), for example:
