The University has a mathematics prerequisite for some courses. This means that to study certain degrees, students will need to achieve a Band 4 in the NSW Higher School Certificate (HSC) Mathematics (not general mathematics) or the equivalent in another qualification.

If students don't meet the mathematics requirements, they may be able to:

  • complete the Mathematics MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and exam
  • apply for another course and then transfer into their preferred course in their second semester or second year if the course does not have a mid-year intake (after successful completion of an accepted 1000 level mathematics unit).

We offer a large number of scholarships for both domestic and international undergraduate students. Students are encouraged to explore their options, as there are scholarships awarded on a wide range of criteria including equity, merit and intended area of study.

With more than 100 study areas to choose from, the shared pool of majors and minors (available in certain degrees) allows students to combine their interests and develop expertise in a second field of study, building cross-disciplinary knowledge from areas outside their primary degree.

For instance, they will be able to enjoy studying science while exploring their interest in history; or combine their major in marketing with the study of digital cultures.

We have 250+ partner universities in over 40 countries, giving students the opportunity to take short-term, semester and year-long exchanges. They can also study at overseas field schools, take in-country intensives, short-term summer programs, overseas professional placements, and even virtual experiences.
