Inherent requirements

To assist students to make informed choices about their study, we have identified and set out the Inherent Requirements for coursework award courses in nursing.

The University of Sydney welcomes and encourages applications from students with disabilities, and from diverse social and cultural backgrounds. Where there are physical, intellectual, cultural, religious or other factors that impact on a student's ability to meet the Inherent Requirements, the University will make reasonable adjustments to assist the student to meet the requirements. Please read the Inherent Requirements carefully as you consider your course choices.

To help you understand common terms that we use at the University, we offer an online glossary.
