International entry requirements
2015 international qualification entry requirements and scores for this course are available from the Undergraduate Qualifications Database.
Equivalent Australian Year 12 OR to be eligible for an external transfer OR internal transfer, students must have:
(1) completed one or more years of a recognised tertiary degree (ie. a minimum of 48 credit points) and
(2) or achieved a credit average or better (75%+) across all university units for an international full-fee place.
Note: The above average is the minimum entry criteria to be eligible for admission. Entry to law courses via transfer is a competitive process and the actual average required depends on the number and standard of applications received each year.
Minimum entrance requirements for non-school-leavers
The Faculty of Law does not accept TAFE qualifications as grounds for admission.
The Faculty of Law does not accept single unit enrolments for undergraduate studies. However, those students with international qualifications who are required by the Council of Legal Education to complete units for admission to practice in Australia may enrol in certain units.
Applicants who have completed a minimum of one year's equivalent full-time study in an undergraduate or higher degree and achieved a distinction average or better (75%+) across all university units for a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP), (averages are calculated across all tertiary studies, irrespective of discipline) are eligible to be considered.
