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 National High School Graduation Certificate (Bang Tot Ngiep Trung hoc Pho thong) from an approved gifted high school. 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.

International student scholarships

We have recently expanded the number of scholarships available to support undergraduate and graduate students who want to take up study with us in 2022.

Whether you're a new or current student, you could be eligible for a number of merit-based scholarships of A$10,000 or more, wherever you are in the world.

We have increased the number of available international student scholarships as part of our commitment to supporting our global student community, diversity and growing future global citizens and leaders.
