Admission into Commonwealth Supported and Fee-Paying Places - Selection Procedures

Parent Policy

Admission to Coursework Courses and Units of Study Policy

1. Domestic students who gain an offer of an undergraduate place in a course according to identified selection principles will be admitted to a Commonwealth Supported Place as provided by the Higher Education Support Act (HESA).

2. Domestic students who gain an offer of a graduate/postgraduate place in a course according to identified selection principles will be admitted to either a Commonwealth Supported Place or a Full-Fee paying place, as determined by each faculty and as provided by the Higher Education Support Act (HESA). 

   a. Faculties will designate if places will be offered:
       (i) solely as Commonwealth Supported;
       (ii) solely as Full-Fee; or
       (iii) as a mixture of Commonwealth Supported and Full-Fee places.

   b. Where there is a mixture of Commonwealth Supported and Full-Fee places available, and where applicants have expressed interest in a Commonwealth Supported Place, faculties will establish a ranking process that will be used to allocate those places among applicants who have otherwise been selected according to identified selection procedures. The ranking process will be based primarily on academic merit, but may include other criteria, such as educational or economic disadvantage. Allocation for timely applicants will first be made for any available Commonwealth Supported places according to the rank order, and then offers will continue being made according to the rank order to fee-paying applicants. Late applicants may only have access to Full-Fee places.

3. International students who gain an offer of an undergraduate or graduate/postgraduate place in a course according to identified selection principles will be admitted to a Full-Fee paying place.
