Notes

1. Not all academic qualifications are listed and students with other qualifications should send their details to the International Admissions Centre for assessment.

2. If a student intends to subsequently apply to university for further studies, Australian universities expect applicants to have completed senior secondary education (or equivalent).  Such applicants should also consider their selection of course carefully, as academic pathways to universities often require studies within similar areas.

3. All entry requirements are subject to the requirements specified by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.
