How to apply

Starting your application

Once you have searched our course page for an option which fits your career pathway, you’re on your way.

Here’s a few things to keep in mind to get you started before you apply:

  • We have two main student intakes each year – Semester 1 and Semester 2. Sometimes courses are also available for start in term 2 and term 4. See our key dates page. You must apply within the intake period to be considered for a place. We also have courses all year round that are available for continuous enrolment.
  • Be sure to check if your course is competitive, as you’ll need to bolster your application with supporting documents, ready for ranking against other applicants:
    • List all of your education history, including qualifications and any courses you have done
    • List all of your work experience, including paid, voluntary and community work - provide any supporting evidence you might have
    • Make sure you include all your contact details and that they are correct
  • Sometimes after the closing period, we may have limited remaining places in courses. You can express your interest but there are no guarantees. So, to avoid missing out in securing your spot, it’s always best to get your application in early.
  • Eligibility requirements are available on each course page. These are set to ensure you have a successful study journey.
  • Be prepared with all the required documents for your course so you have everything you need ready to apply. The application button you need to use will be within the preferred study option on the course page.
