Application Process

Step 1

Prepare Your Study Documentation 

  • Certified copy of your academic records
    • If you are applying via QTAC the year you finish Year 12, your academic documentation will be automatically sent to QTAC for assessment
    • If your qualification was completed overseas, ensure a translated copy is also provided
  • A copy of your Australian or New Zealand citizenship document (Passport, Birth Certificate, Australian Citizenship Certificate), or proof of Australian Permanent Residency

If you completed your study overseas, you may need to meet the English requirements. Submit a certified copy of your English test results

If you have existing formal qualifications, you may be eligible to receive credit for previous studies. Complete the credit transfer application form and attach it to your application.
