Alternative entry pathways
 Higher Education applicants
You must have completed at least half a year full time equivalent higher education study. A Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated for each separate program you have undertaken (apart from some double degree programs where the GPA is combined). You compete on the basis of your best GPA.
 Special Entry applicants
You must be 18 years or over before 1 February 2018. If you have studied at higher education level in the last two years (for 2018 entry this means you were enrolled in either 2017 or 2016), you must not have accumulated more than a TOTAL of 2 years fulltime (or parttime equivalent) higher education study (ie. including any study prior to 2016). If you meet this criteria, you will be ranked according to your result in the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT). Your STAT result is not weighted between verbal and quantitative components. Indigenous applicants may be eligible for entry through the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Access Scheme. See Wirltu Yarlu for further information.

*STUDENTS WITH PRIOR PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCE:
Do not need to complete COMP SCI 1101 Introduction to Programming and therefore complete the following courses in the order listed a) COMP SCI 1102 Object Oriented Programming b) COMP SCI 1103 Algorithm Design and Data Structures c) COMP SCI 2201 Algorithm & Data Structure Analysis d) Level I, II or III Elective
*STUDENTS WITH NO PRIOR PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCE:
Complete the following courses in the order listed a) COMP SCI 1101 Introduction to Programming b) COMP SCI 1102 Object Oriented Programming c) COMP SCI 1103 Algorithm Design and Data Structures d) COMP SCI 2201 Algorithm & Data Structure Analysis
** To enrol in MATHS 1012 Mathematics IB students must first pass MATHS 1011 Mathematics IA, this is presented as a level 1 elective. Entry into MATHS 1011 Mathematics IA requires SACE Stage 2 Specialist Mathematics, or a pass in MATHS 1013 Mathematics IM. The Mathematics IA/IB pathway is for students who want to study extra mathematics. A pass in Mathematics IB is prerequisite for all Level II Mathematics courses.
# Electives must include Broadening Electives to the value of 9 units.
These Broadening Electives cannot be chosen from the following subject areas: COMP SCI , MATHS, PURE MTH, APP MATH, STATS.
