Entry requirements

International entry requirements

2014 international qualification entry requirements and scores for this course are available from the Undergraduate Qualifications Database.


The ISAT (for international students) will no longer be required for students applying for the Bachelor of Physiotherapy for entry in 2015 and beyond.

Applicants will still be required to undertake an interview. Applicants will be ranked for interview eligibility based on their academic record and demonstrated completion of prerequisite subjects.

All applicants must be available for face to face interview at the designated time.

Depending on the location of each applicant, they may be eligible to attend an interview in either Asia (Singapore/Malaysia) mid-year (late June/early July), or in Melbourne later in the year (November).

Please see the department's website:

Australian based Year 12 or tertiary applicants apply via VTAC online by the timely application date.

International applicants who are overseas apply directly through International Recruitment Service (IRS) at Monash University Web:

See for detailed dates.

Selection for interview is based on academic performance. All applicants must be available for face to face interviews at the designated time. In deciding applicants' final ranking equal weighting is given to their interview and academic results.

Minimum entrance requirements for non-school-leavers

Non Year 12 applicants will apply through VTAC.


Applicants will be assessed considering the entire academic record including GPA and interview. Non Year 12 applicants must also meet the Year 12 prerequisite subjects either at Year 12 level or equivalent tertiary studies.
