ANU Undergraduate - International Applications

Starting an undergraduate degree is an exciting moment in your life and it will probably be the first time you study at university. This guide will help you find the right degree for you and submit an application.

An undergraduate degree is a Bachelor Degree, Flexible Double Degree™ or Diploma.

Assistance with your Application

If you need assistance ANU has an extensive network of official agent representatives in more than 50 countries. Agents can help you with you enquiries and all aspects of your applications.


Before you read any further please use the advisory pages on the right to establish that you qualify as an international student and that you can meet our English language requirements.

The admission requirements published here are the minimum requirements that need to be met for you to be considered for admission. Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee that you will be accepted in this or future years. ANU reserves the right to amend admissions requirements at any time. 

First Semester 2019 commencement

Due to high demand for our programs, applications direct to ANU for commencement in First Semester 2019 (February intake) are now closed. 

Step 1
Choose your degree preferences

Visit Programs & Courses to explore our degree programs. You can search by degree title or subject area, and you can compare or combine two programs with our Flexible Double Degree™ creator. So, even if you haven't decided what you want to study, you have a flexible option.

Entry requirements

Each degree at ANU has minimum entry requirements that must be met for your application to be considered and some degrees have requirements, such as prerequisite subjects, that must be met in addition to the overall minimum entry score. If you are applying for entry to a Flexible Double Degree™, you must meet the higher requirement of the two degrees as well as any additional requirements for both degrees to be considered for admission.

The following guides provide the minimum entry requirements for a range of secondary qualifications from across the world for commencement in the given year. If you have completed at least one year of study at university, your application may be assessed on the basis of your previous university results.

Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee that you will be accepted in this or future years. ANU reserves the right to amend admissions requirements at any time. 

Step 2
Submit your application

Completing Australian Year 12, New Zealand NCEA Level 3, or International Baccalaureate (IB)

If you are currently completing an Australian Year 12, a New Zealand NCEA Level 3, or an International Baccalaureate (IB), you need to apply through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).

UAC allows you to choose up to six preferences, but you can change these preferences after you submit your application. You can even change your preferences after you have received an offer. Your preferences will be assessed in the order you list, so make sure you list your preferences in the order you would most like to study. You can also choose an ANU Flexible Double Degree™ and make your final decision when you receive an offer.

Please refer to the UAC website for information on application deadlines.

All Other International Students 

You need to submit your application directly to ANU. Click the Apply button on the program page in the Programs & Courses website. You can choose up to three preferences in your application. If you choose an ANU Flexible Double Degree™ as one of your preferences, you need to choose two degrees at the time of application.

If you have already studied at university, you may be eligible for credit for your previous studies.
