Application and Admission
General Admission Requirements
To be eligible for entry to the University of Ballarat applicants must be able to meet the University of Ballarat general academic admission requirements (including in some cases specific subject prerequisites for particular courses) and demonstrate proficiency in the English language.
Academic Entry Requirements
Students are assessed competitively on the basis for Australian Year 12, or overseas equivalent school qualifications.
Some courses may require additional procedures such as interviews and/or auditions if required by the University of Ballarat. Students with post-school qualifications (e.g. Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas) may be considered for admission with advanced standing or credit (recognition of prior learning). The amount of advanced standing will not normally exceed more than half of the University of Ballarat course concerned.
Entry requirements vary from course to course, but generally require completion of a first degree from a recognised university with specified minimum grades (or marks) in relevant subjects. A period of work experience, following graduation, may also be required for some professional courses.
English Language Proficiency
In addition, for all courses, students must have obtained the following minimum level of English language proficiency to be admitted.
Undergraduate and Postgraduate (Coursework)
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) - Overall band score of 6.0, with no individual sub-score less than 5.5.
TOEFL (Teaching of English as a Foreign Language) - A score of 550 in paper based test, including the Test of Written English (TWE). Alternatively a score of 213 in the computer based test or 79 in the Internet based test may also be acceptable.
Recognition of Prior Learning
A student may apply for academic exemption for studies already completed in a recognised university (or equivalent).
Full details of the subjects previously studied including detailed syllabuses, a descriptions of the assessment and grading system and an official original academic transcript (or certified copy) detailing performance in the subject(s) concerned must be provided, preferably in advance of coming to Australia or, prior to enrolment, in order for exemptions to be decided.
A student who receives exemption for any unit will receive a full refund (or credit towards another unit) of fees for the course concerned.
Successful applicants will receive an official letter of offer from IIBIT on behalf of University of Ballarat specifying the details of the program or programs, the required fees, the terms and conditions of enrolment and other relevant information. The offer must be accepted in writing and one semester’s course fee, and compulsory medical insurance (OSHC), must be paid after a Pre-visa / e-Visa approval is granted to the applicant. After acceptance for the offer and payment of fees, IIBIT will send each confirmed student an Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) form in order for the student to apply to the Australian diplomatic post for a final student visa to come to Australia.
