Entry requirements for University of Sydney

To be offered a place students need to meet the academic requirements and be selected in competition with other eligible applicants. They will also need to meet English language proficiency requirements and any specified additional criteria, such as an audition, interview, test or presentation of a portfolio.

Admission to undergraduate courses is normally on the basis of the ATAR or equivalent. If students have completed more than one recognised secondary qualification they will generally be considered on their most recent results. If their only qualification is an Australian Year 12 qualification, students can apply on the basis of that qualification.

If students have completed at least one full-time year of study at Bachelor degree level or higher at a recognised educational institution, they will generally be considered on their results from those studies. Full-time study is considered to be the achievement of 48 credit points or more at the University of Sydney, or its equivalent at another tertiary institution.

If students have completed a Diploma or Associate Diploma, the results of these studies may be considered if they are relevant to the course for which they are applying.

If students are older than 21 and did not start university straight from school they may be eligible for the Mature-Age Entry Scheme.

Transfering your previous study credits

If students have already completed some tertiary study they may be eligible for limited credit for relevant subjects or for entry to the second or later year/s of their degree program. Second year entry is not available for some courses. For more information see The University will generally determine advanced standing applicants after enrolment.
