* To be eligible for consideration for an offer, international students must achieve at least the required score as listed above, meet the course prerequisites, achieve the required grades in specified prerequisite subjects and satisfy the English language requirements. SAT scores listed are for the Evidence-based Reading and Writing, and Mathematics sections in the new SAT; the optional essay is not required for admission. SAT test results are valid for two years and so tests earlier than May 2016 may still be accepted for 2017 entry, depending on the test date and date of application. Completion of the Critical Reading, Writing and Mathematics sections is required in the earlier tests and equivalent scores to those listed above will apply. Slightly lower SAT results may be accepted for students with a higher GPA.

^ Applicants must be qualified for University entry and have satisfied the course-specific extra requirements.
