See ‘Getting in’ ratings above and in the Section 3 field of study
Domestic undergraduate applications can be submitted via
the NSW and ACT University Admissions Centre (UAC).
Admission to all ANU courses is on a competitive basis, taking
into account relevant academic qualifications. If an applicant has
completed an approved tertiary preparation course or alternative
entry scheme, they will be assessed on the results of that scheme
alone, unless subsequent study has been undertaken.
ANU offers many alternate pathways, including the National
Access Scheme for educationally disadvantaged students, the
Indigenous Australian Admission Scheme, bonus points for good
results in specific courses for entry to some programs, an Elite
Athlete Program, the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT),
mature age entry schemes and an associate degree pathway for
those who have been out of the education system for a long time
or who completed Year 12 and were not eligible for an ATAR.
Students who want a head start can complete university
subjects while they are still in Year 12 through ANU Extension.
All institutions have their own admission rules, so refer to the
ANU website and the local tertiary admission centre’s
