Entry requirements for University of Tasmania
Tasmanian school leavers wishing to apply to the University of Tasmania must have met the following criteria: completed at least two years of post-Year 10 study; and satisfactorily completed a minimum of four pre-tertiary C subjects identified for university entry in Tasmania, three of which must be studies in Year 12; and satisfied the prerequisite and minimum score requirements for the specific course wishing to be studied.
In the majority of cases students will have their Tertiary Entrance Rank (TER) based on their top five (5) pre-tertiary C subjects studied over two years. A minimum of three (3) subjects must be studied in Year 12 to be counted in the score, with the other two subjects being taken from either Years 11 or 12. par Interstate school leavers will be considered eligible for selection if they have met the necessary course prerequisites and have qualified for admission to a higher education institution in their home state. Their tertiary entrance ranking (ENTER, TER or equivalent) is equivalent to Tasmania's TER.
Non-school leaver applicants can apply for admission on the basis of previous tertiary study (complete or partially complete), TAFE qualifications, mature age or previous work experience, professional qualifications, special entry or Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander admission. Applicants in these categories will be considered on the basis of their application and supporting documentation. However, in some instances the prerequisites for courses will still need to be met.
