How to apply

Let's just check you are eligible

Pick your situation from the list below for more information.

If you are an international student, read the information below before completing an application.

As someone who recently completed secondary education, either at high school, TAFE or another VET provider, you will generally be considered for entry based on your Selection Rank (SR). Some degrees have additional entry requirements such as auditions or interviews and where required you will find these listed on the relevant degree page.

Try to choose what you are most interested in and then research some back up options with lower Selection Ranks (SR) to put as your later choices. A good tip is to look at degrees that may have similar first year subjects. This will help you reduce your overall study time if you want to apply to transfer to your degree of choice after the first year. We also recommend choosing one of our free pathway programs as a backup option as your fifth preference on your UAC application. Selection Ranks (SR) requirements for our degrees do change from year to year so only use the Selection Rank (SR) as a guide.

You should start planning your way into uni from Year 10 onwards. Think about:

  • Using our study areas to narrow down study options based on what you are interested in
  • Come and speak to us at events like Open Day, Schools Visit Day and campus tours
  • Check the Assumed Knowledge and Recommended Studies of the degrees you are interested in
  • If you are a high performer you can get a head start by completing some uni subjects while still at school
  • Sign up to our mailing list for regular updates
  • Have a look at adjustment points and other entry schemes that may give you an extra boost
  • Decide on some back up options like Newstep and other entry pathways if you don't get the required marks
  • See our Application FAQs .
  • Have questions? Ask a student.  We know you must have heaps of questions about university life – what’s needed to get into your degree, where to go for support, what on-campus accommodation is available and of course, where to find the best coffee. Jump on our website to chat to one of our Student Ambassadors.

Secondary results don’t have a use-by date, so even if you completed high school 20 years ago, these results may be used to apply to the University of Newcastle. You can use your ATAR or equivalent (UAI, TER etc) to apply irrespective of when you completed Year 12.

It can be complicated to calculate your Selection Rank (SR) based on high school results prior to the introduction of the ATAR in 2009. Contact us at 1300 275 866 and let us do the calculating for you.

If you don’t think you will meet the Selection Rank (SR) for admission there are other options to get in depending on your situation:

  • Open Foundation
    Complete this one year or six-month program to get a new mark for entry.
  • Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Admission Scheme
    Get entry help by identifying you are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent.
  • Elite Athlete Program
    Get adjustment points and support by applying as an elite athlete.
  • Special Tertiary Admissions Test
    Complete this test for a mark for entry into some of our degrees.

For advice on these other options please contact us by calling 1300 275 866.

If you studied vocational education and training, the type of qualification, whether or not you completed it, and if it was graded or competency-based will all be taken into consideration to assess your eligibility for admission. TAFE and private providers, as well as some universities, typically offer Certificate III, IV and Diploma Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) awards. Some also offer Advanced Diploma and Associate Degrees.

For admission purposes, and to ensure fairness and transparency among applicants with different types of qualifications, all assessable qualifications are converted to a selection rank. Selection ranks from different individual qualifications are not combined or added together to form a rank. The highest of the two numbers will be the one used to assess your eligibility for admission. Different selection ranks are assigned to VET courses with graded assessment and competency based (ungraded) assessment. The tables below provide information on how to assess your selection rank based on your AQF qualification.

TAFE Guaranteed Entry

Many of our students come to us after completing TAFE studies. You can gain guaranteed entry into many of our 2021 undergraduate programs if you have previously completed an accredited Certificate  IV, Diploma, or Advanced Diploma at TAFE or another registered training organisation (RTO).

Senior secondary school qualification

International Undergraduate Admission Requirements - South Asia

Post-secondary study

Further education like diplomas and university study can also be assessed for admission.

Additional requirements

Some of our programs have additional requirements like an audition, or portfolio.

Applicants who do not speak English as a first language must demonstrate that they meet the University's English proficiency requirement. Further information regarding English language proficiency requirements can be found at the English Language Proficiency for Admission Policy.

The Australian Government operates a student visa program that enables people who are not Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents to undertake study in Australia. A person who wants to undertake a course of study under the student visa programme must obtain a student visa before they can commence a course of study in Australia. A successful applicant must be both a genuine temporary entrant and a genuine student.

An applicant who is a genuine temporary entrant will have circumstances that support a genuine intention to temporarily enter and remain in Australia, notwithstanding the potential for this intention to change over time to an intention to utilise lawful means to remain in Australia for an extended period of time or permanently. All Australian education providers must have strategies and arrangements in place to ensure that all students and prospective students meet the requirements with Direction 69 as a condition of admission to the institution.

When your application for admission is received, the University of Newcastle will assess this against university entrance requirements including: minimum age, English and academic entry requirements. To comply with Australian law your application will also be assessed to check that you are genuinely seeking temporary entry to Australia to study. You may be asked to provide the University of Newcastle with evidence addressing Ministerial Direction 69 as part of finalising your admission. If the University forms the opinion that you are not a Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) it may refuse to assess your application, withdraw an offer of a place, or cancel your confirmation of enrolment.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection in Australia will also assess each application for a student visa (subclass 500) against the applicant’s intention to stay temporarily in Australia as a genuine student. The criteria for this assessment are outlined in Ministerial Direction 69. Applicants that don’t satisfy the criteria under Direction 69 will not be granted a student visa.

For more information, please refer to the following areas of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website:

Other things to consider

Entry to the University of Newcastle degree programs offered in Singapore are based on overseas qualifications considered equivalent to Australian qualifications, as well as satisfying English language requirement. More information regarding our partner PSB Academy can be found here.

Mid-year admission:

In some instances, mid-year admissions may extend the duration of the program due to the requirement to complete sequential courses.  However, for many students, it will still be possible to complete within the 3 years minimum timeframe.

All Applicants must demonstrate that they meet the University’s English proficiency requirement. Further information regarding English language proficiency requirements can be found at the English Language Proficiency for Admission Policy here.

The IELTS requirement for admission to this program is 6.5 with no sub-test less than 6.0.

A command of written and spoken English equivalent to that found in students exiting the New South Wales High School Certificate (HSC) at a pass level is assumed knowledge.
