Our entry requirements

We accept the International Baccalaureate, A levels and US High School Diplomas curriculum for direct entry. We also accept students who graduate with the certificates under 'other entry requirements'. Students must achieve the minimum overall GPA in Year 12, have completed any course prerequisite subjects and meet English language requirements to be eligible for direct entry into a bachelor degree.

For students who do not attend one of the approved gifted high schools or those students who do not wish to complete Year 12 in Vietnam, Trinity College Foundation Studies (TCFS) is the University’s preferred foundation studies program and pathway for international students seeking entry into the University’s undergraduate degrees.
