Entry Requirements:

DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks: Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12. The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 95 or an IB of 37. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. These adjustments used to be called bonus points. ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied Mathematics, any two units of science. Ideally, students will have studied Biology, Chemistry. Students who have not completed Chemistry at the HSC level are required to complete a Chemistry bridging course. Students who have not completed Biology at the HSC are strongly recommended to enrol in a Biology bridging course. Both courses are offered in February each year. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Applicants need to have achieved the required score in a qualification equivalent to the completion of 13 years of schooling in Australia. In order to succeed in your chosen course, it is assumed you have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications.
