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.

The numbers quoted below refer to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank. For information on how the ATAR score compares to an OP or QTAC selection rank, please visit the QTAC website.

  • Lowest ATAR to which an offer was made: L/N
    This number is exclusive of any adjustment factors such as equity or subject bonus points.
  • Lowest ATAR Selection Rank to which a recent Year 12 student offer was made: L/N
    This number is inclusive of the impact of any equity or other adjustment factors.

For information on how adjustment factors are applied to your ATAR please visit the Bonus Points section on the UAC website. How bonus points are applied to an OP is explained in the Assistance Schemes section on the QTAC website.

    This number refers to a specific ATAR (or ATAR Selection Rank) at which an offer of admission is guaranteed, subject to any non-ATAR criteria being met.

  • N/P – Not published: the number is hidden to prevent calculation of numbers in cells with less than 25 offers.
  • 75th percentile – This represents the ATAR scores of the highest 25% of offers made from the lowest 75%. This means that about 75% of the offers in the data set lie below this number and about 25% lie above.
  • 25th percentile – This represents the OP scores of the lowest 25% of offers made from the highest 75%. This means that about 25% of the offers in the data set lie below this number and about 75% lie above.
