Entry requirements

Entry requirements

To secure a place at the University of Wollongong, international applicants will need to meet the entry requirements of their chosen programme, as well as English proficiency conditions.

The university accepts qualifications from over 40 countries and education systems. It requires applicants to have at least completed the equivalent of Year 12 at an Australian high school to be considered for direct entry to an undergraduate programme.

UOW accepts English proficiency test scores from IELTS, TOEFL, Pearsons, Cambridge, as well as OET for specific health courses. As many test centres are currently closed due to Covid-19, the university is also currently accepting alternative English tests, including the IELTS Indicator, Online TOEFL IBT at Home, and Duolingo. However, Duolingo will only be considered if online IELTS and TOEFL tests aren't available in the applicant's home country.

If applicants don't meet the university's English requirements, they can attend an English pathways programme (run by the university), before starting their degree at UOW. Upon completion of a pathways course, students are then guaranteed entry onto their chosen degree at either first- or second-year level.

Applicants who have previously studied in English may be considered without taking a proficiency test.

Previous studies, including diplomas and partially completed bachelor's degrees, can be used as course credit for a university transfer. If applicants choose to do this, it will reduce the length of study, and therefore the overall cost of their course.
