Our entry requirements

We accept the International Baccalaureate, A levels and US High School Diplomas curriculum for direct entry. 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 Taiwan, 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.

"Coming to Melbourne has given me the chance to really engage in and gain a much broader understanding of marketing. The teachers and the course are fantastic, and there are all sorts of opportunities. I did the Global Practicum in Kuala Lumpur, with a company called RSM - the word's 6th largest accounting firm. We workedwith them on a social media project to create a campaign that would reach their audience, while still operating within local regulations."
