Entry Standards

A member of the Group of Eight, a coalition of Australia's leading research-intensive universities, the University of Adelaide is South Australia's leading university.

We believe in providing clear and relevant information to help you choose the best university and degree for you.

The ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) is a good indicator of degree entry requirements and can be useful for comparing and deciding what to study. Below you can review the median ATAR, as well as the upper and lower quartile figures, for study areas of our undergraduate degrees.

We hope this information supports you in taking the next step to applying at the University of Adelaide and your path to a successful future.
