ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY
This information will help you find the most useful and relevant admission and selection requirements based on your circumstances.
- Completed secondary education recently (within the past two years)
This is information for applicants with recent secondary education (within the past two years)
Applicants are selected according to academic merit, in the form of the ATAR or notional ATAR calculated by the relevant Tertiary Admissions Centre. Courses which select primarily on ATAR will have minimum ATARs set in advance, and you can only be selected below this point if you have additional criteria to be considered.
The standard required to receive an offer may be above the minimum ATAR. It is determined by the number of applications and the number of places available.
External assessment is a key component required in all qualifications approved as entry pathways to the University of Melbourne. For this reason, you’ll need an ATAR or notional ATAR for courses which select primarily on ATAR, and study scores to satisfy prerequisites (not simply completing the subject).
CONSIDERATION OF EQUITY, STUDENT BACKGROUNDS AND PREVIOUS EDUCATIONAL DISADVANTAGE
The University of Melbourne takes into consideration equity, student backgrounds and previous education disadvantage through a number of special entry schemes, including Access Melbourne
Please note: We do not make any adjustments to the ATAR for applicants eligible for the Victorian Baccalaureate.
All applicants must satisfy the course prerequisites. Usually this is achieved through the relevant Australian Year 12 subject but there are other ways you can satisfy prerequisites.
Criteria that may apply in addition to ATAR
If you’re not clearly-in, factors may be taken into consideration in addition to your ATAR or notional ATAR:
Circumstances described in your SEAS application. For some applicants, selection guarantees may apply. For all applicants eligible for Access Melbourne, offers are regularly made significantly below the lowest selection rank offered to and the minimum ATAR. Check if you are eligible for Access Melbourne
YEAR 11/12 SPECIAL CONSIDERATION
If you’re applying while in Year 12, additional consideration based on circumstances which have occurred in the last two years described in your SEAS application could add up to 10 points to your aggregate, and a new ATAR would effectively apply for that course. Find out more about Special Consideration.
ELITE ATHLETES AND ARTISTIC PERFORMERS ENTRY SCHEME
Additional consideration is given on an individual basis based on the circumstances described in your Elite Athletes and Artistic Performers Entry Scheme application. For some applicants, selection guarantees may apply. For all applicants eligible for the Elite Athletes and Artistic Performers Entry Scheme, offers may be made below the lowest selection rank offered to. Find out about the scheme.
Adjustments for the following criteria are already made as part of the ATAR calculation and we do not adjust for:
- Extension studies undertaken as part of Year 12
- Bonus points for completed language subjects.
Only relevant work and community experience will be considered and only where work experience is specified in the course selection criteria.

- Completed some or all of a higher education qualification
This information is for applicants with higher education study from the last seven years (excluding extension studies taken as part of Year 12).
If your last study was more than seven years ago, see the information about thenon-school leaver entry pathwayin the section forapplicants with work and life experiencebelow.
Applicants are selected according to academic merit, usually in the form of the weighted average mark.
YOUR WEIGHTED AVERAGE MARK (WAM)
If you have completed any higher education study, a weighted average mark (WAM) (weighted according to the point value of the individual subjects) is calculated. Your WAM is calculated across any undergraduate and graduate coursework study you have undertaken. Any research study undertaken is considered in addition to your WAM. Instructions on how to calculate a WAM
IF YOU HAVE LESS THAN A YEAR (1 EFTSL) OF HIGHER EDUCATION STUDY
Your entire academic record is considered and both your ATAR (or other final secondary result) and your WAM will be considered.
If you’ve completed less than a year (1 EFTSL) of higher education study and don’t have a secondary qualification assessed by the University as equivalent to the VCE, you won’t be eligible for entry. You may be eligible, however, under thenon-school leaver entry pathway, see the section forapplicants with work and life experiencebelow.
IF YOU HAVE A YEAR (1 EFTSL) OF HIGHER EDUCATION STUDY
Generally, your WAM will be primary factor in assessment, particularly if your study is in a relevant discipline.
IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN A YEAR (1 EFTSL) OF HIGHER EDUCATION STUDY
WAMs will be calculated across all your higher education study and across the last year (1 EFTSL) and the higher of the two will be considered in assessment. If the points equating to the last EFTSL fall within a study period (e.g. a semester) then all subjects within that study period will be included in the calculation.
The information provided in your VTAC personal statement regarding your motivation in applying for the course and your study and career goals will also be taken into consideration.
VTAC PERSONAL STATEMENTS
Some elements of your VTAC personal statement may be considered during assessment:
- Relevant work and community experience will be considered only where work experience is specified as part of the course selection criteria
- Explanations about why the WAM does not truly represent your potential:
- Difficult circumstances - we would typically assume that these have been dealt with via special consideration and other internal mechanisms at your previous institution. If this is not the case, you can describe the issue and the impact it had in a personal statement and attach independent supporting documentation to corroborate your claim.
- Please note: if you have previous higher education study you are not eligible for Access Melbourne (excluding extension studies done as part of Year 12 and applicants eligible for the non-school leaver entry pathway). For most applicants with higher education study we do not look at information provided in the VTAC SEAS application, only at information provided in the personal statement.
- If you believe your performance was impacted by the discipline you were studying and you are now seeking a ‘fresh start’, you can mention this in this form. If your higher education study was consecutive, recent, not more than a year, and your secondary results are above the level required for entry, then in some cases you may be assessed mainly on your secondary results.
If you have completed more than a year of tertiary study, details about your motivation in applying for the course and your future study and career goals will be considered.
All applicants must satisfy the course prerequisites. Usually this is achieved through the relevant Australian Year 12 subject but there are other ways you can satisfy prerequisites, including through the completion of approved tertiary subjects
There is no time limit for satisfying an English prerequisite but other prerequisites must generally be satisfied within the last 10 years to ensure the knowledge is current.
Advanced standing (credit)
Advanced standing (sometimes known as credit or recognition of prior learning) may be awarded based on prior study. It is not awarded for work experience in undergraduate degrees. Learn more about Advanced Standing.
