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 a CBSE All India Senior School Certificate (AISSC) / CISCE Indian School Certificate (ISC). 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 bachelors 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 India, 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.

International student scholarships

We have one of the most generous scholarship programs in Australia to help with your tuition and living costs.

Turn your ambition into achievement

When you apply to the University you will be automatically considered for some of our scholarships; others you'll need to apply for directly. Some are awarded on merit and others are designed to help you with your expenses.

Our scholarship program reflects our ongoing commitment to supporting our global student community, diversity and growing future global citizens and leaders.

After researching and talking to relatives, I chose Melbourne because of the flexibility in the curriculum, the extensive array of subjects to choose from, top of-field staff, and of course, the massive campus.

My work experience in innovation and quality management in the fast-moving consumer goods industry led me to explore courses that teach the technical aspects while being management-oriented.
