International students studying in Australia

*Note: International students who are currently studying an Australian Year 12 (within Australia or overseas) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) in Australia, and current University of Melbourne undergraduate students wishing to transfer to another Melbourne course, must apply through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC).


As an international applicant, you are strongly encouraged to submit your application, including all required documents, by the application closing dates. This will enable the application to be considered for a greater range and number of scholarships. Closing dates may vary according to the course you are applying for. You should confirm the course application closing date with the relevant faculty.
