Bachelor of Education (Secondary Arts)

Admission Criteria

To be eligible for admission to a University of New England course, you are required to satisfy all entry requirements. These may include English language proficiency, unit prerequisites, an entry score (e.g. ATAR or OP) and, for some courses, course specific requirements.

The Admission Undergraduate and Postgraduate (Coursework) Rule published in the UNE Policy Register provides the framework for admission to all undergraduate and postgraduate (coursework) courses, non-award and cross-institutional study at UNE. It should be read in conjunction with the Admission Undergraduate and Postgraduate (Coursework) Procedures.

Both documents are complemented by the Whole-of-Institution Admission Information Set outlining a collection of relevant information about UNE’s general admission policies and processes.

Information specific to this course is published in the University’s Course and Unit Catalogue. It includes, but is not limited to:

  • Course overview;
  • Entry requirements;
  • Additional requirements;
  • Course rules & plans;
  • Course outcomes.
