UNDERGRADUATE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
To apply for an undergraduate course at the University of Sydney, you need to meet certain requirements – these are known as the minimum eligibility criteria. The following pages describe the requirements in detail, but basically you need to:
- have an acceptable senior secondary qualification from your high school (or have studied for at least one year at tertiary level studies)
- have achieved certain grades in your academic studies
- meet the English language requirements
- meet any special entry requirements such as health or security checks or submission of a portfolio – check the details for your specific degree using Find a course.
If you don’t have an acceptable senior secondary or tertiary qualification, there are some other options. You could enrol in the University of Sydney Foundation Program, and complete a course, equivalent to a final-year secondary qualification in Australia. Likewise, if you don’t meet the English language requirements, you could enrol in an English preparation course at the University’s Centre for English Teaching.
