Admission criteria

To be eligible for admission to Griffith University, you need to satisfy any admission requirements for a program of study. In Queensland the admission score for a program is expressed as an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) score or selection rank. There can be additional admission requirements or selection criteria for programs including:

  • English language proficiency – meeting a minimum standard of English language competency.
  • Minimum age – minimum age requirements for applicants at the time they would commence their studies.
  • Subject prerequisites – completion of compulsory subject matter.
  • Special selection criteria – performance in an audition, submission of a portfolio, level of attainment in a specialised test, interview or questionnaire.

Subject prerequisites and assumed knowledge 

ENGLISH

 Most Griffith undergraduate degrees now require Essential English which is an Applied subject to meet the English subject prerequisite. For these programs, the admission requirements will state ‘Any General or Applied English (Units 3 & 4, C)’. Some degrees still require a General English and the admission criteria for these programs will state ‘English, English as an Additional Language, Literature or English & Literature Extension (Units 3 & 4, C)’. These programs include Education, Nursing, Laws (Honours) and some Health programs. Some programs, such as Information Technology, Acting, Music, Musical Theatre and Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art, have English as Assumed Knowledge.

MATHEMATICS

 A range of Griffith programs have mathematics as Assumed Knowledge. This is indicated in the admission criteria. Recent changes include Engineering (Honours) and the new Software Engineering (Honours).

Griffith University programs, admission requirements and other information relevant to admission can be found at the Griffith Degree Finder. The Griffith University Undergraduate Programs Admission Policy is also available.

If you have completed a bachelor degree or higher, you will be assigned a selection rank based on the level and duration of the study and the Grade Point Average (GPA) you have achieved.

Successfully completing a minimum of two single tertiary education courses (subjects) meets the Griffith University English subject prerequisite. It doesn’t matter which two courses have been completed. Successful completion of two or more courses can also provide you with a new selection rank. For more information visit Upgrading via University Studies.

If you have a number of different qualifications for which selection ranks can be assigned, normally the highest rank will be used for admission.

Credit and recognition of prior learning

Griffith provides credit if you can demonstrate that you have already achieved the learning required for components of a program of study. Griffith may grant credit for:

  • Formal study that takes place through a structured program of learning and leads to the full or partial achievement of an officially accredited qualification. Examples include study undertaken with other Australian higher education providers, study undertaken at a Vocational Education and Training (VET) provider including TAFE and private colleges, study at overseas institutions, or credentialed programs provided by recognised professional bodies, employers and other authorities.
  • Non-formal learning that takes place through a structured program of learning but does not lead to an officially accredited qualification. Examples include learning and training activities undertaken in the workplace, voluntary sector or in community-based settings.
  • Informal learning gained through work, social, family, hobby or leisure activities and experience. Informal learning is not organised or externally structured in terms of objectives, time or learning support.
  • Pathways with credit that are agreed and approved with other institutions via an articulation agreement. Examples include Griffith College and TAFE.
  • You can apply for credit transfer once you have been admitted and this may reduce the time required to complete the program of study. Visit credit transfer for more information.

 

Griffith University accepts a number of bridging and enabling courses completed at one of the registered higher education providers across Australia for admission. Contact Griffith University for more information.

If you have completed an AQF Certificate III, Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma, you are eligible for guaranteed admission to many of Griffith’s programs. You will still need to meet Subject Prerequisites and any other admission requirements as outlined in the Griffith Degree Finder or visit Guaranteed Admission Scheme.

For admission to other programs not listed in the VET Guarantee, your completed AQF Certificates III and IV, AQF Diplomas and sub-degree level study will be assessed based on level, duration, Grade Point Average (GPA) and assigned a selection rank. For details on how these qualifications are assessed visit VET Pathways to Griffith.

Mature applicants with a completed TAFE Diploma of Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation (CATP) can also apply directly to Griffith for a range of programs; visit VET Pathways to Griffith for more information.

Griffith College offers a range of diploma programs to prepare students for a smooth transition into a full program of study at Griffith University.

If you have several selection ranks (e.g. based on year 12 results, VET study, higher education study, employment), you will generally be considered on the highest rank.

You are also required to meet relevant subject prerequisites for the course you are applying for. These can be satisfied by successfully completing Senior secondary subjects (or equivalent). Subject prerequisites generally cannot be met through certificate-level study.

You must also satisfy any additional admission requirements.

Year 12 results (ATAR/selection rank) do not expire once you have left school. Whether this result is considered for an offer to a course will depend on whether you have additional qualifications (including other recognised qualifications completed while at school or post school).

This includes formal qualifications such as Senior External Examination results, higher education study (e.g. bachelor degree level and higher), VET study such as competency-based and graded AQF certificates III and IV (completed), diplomas and sub-degree level study and bridging and preparation courses. Other post-secondary professional and paraprofessional qualifications (including some creative arts, language and civil aviation qualifications, memberships of professional associations for which qualifying exams are undertaken and police, emergency defence force service will be also considered.

Griffith University will also consider you for admission if you have:

  • bridging or enabling courses completed at one of the registered higher education providers across Australia
  • successful completion of the Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation from Queensland TAFE. Students may undertake specific modules to meet subject prerequisite requirements. A minimum rank is available for two or more successfully completed modules.
  • Australian Music Examination Board 9AMEB) qualifications

 

If you are a current Year 12 student applying to Griffith, you will be considered for admission on the basis of merit (expressed as an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) and whether you meet the admission criteria (such as subject prerequisites).

If you are a current Queensland or interstate Year 12 student who does not qualify for an ATAR, you may be considered on the basis of a completed vocational education and training (VET) qualification such as Certificate III or above, as Griffith University accepts standalone VET completed at school for Year 12s to meet rank. You must also meet any subject prerequisites for admission and any other selection criteria. A completed AQF diploma will meet English subject prerequisites. To find out more, visit VET Pathways to Griffith.

If you are a current International Baccalaureate (IB) student applying to Griffith, you are assigned a selection rank based on your completed IB Diploma. This selection rank is expressed on the same scale as the ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank).

Griffith University recognises that some IB students will experience circumstances that prevents them from being awarded the Diploma and offers an IB Safety Net. This means that if for some reason you do not complete your IB Diploma you will be able to apply to QTAC for a place at Griffith and be assessed based on the study that you have completed. You don’t need to apply separately for the Safety Net, as you will automatically be considered when you apply to QTAC. Any eligible adjustments will also be applied to your rank. For more information, visit International Baccalaureate.

Current Year 12 students in Queensland and northern New South Wales undertaking the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE), the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBD) or the Higher School Certificate (HSC) may also be considered for an early offer into selected programs based on their Senior Internal Assessment results and/or VET qualifications (AQF Certificate III or IV). To find out more, visit Year 12 Early Offer Guarantee.

Results from home schooling, Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) and other non-standard Year 12 programs (with SAT tests) may also be assigned a selection rank and considered for an offer based on this selection rank (or other recognised qualifications undertaken while at school). Some exceptions may apply to courses with additional admission requirements (see below). Contact Griffith University for more information.

Applicants with Overseas Year 12 Study

Griffith University will consider equivalent overseas Year 12 qualifications for admission purposes. Contact Griffith for more information. If you have secondary or tertiary qualifications from countries where English is not the standard language of instruction, you must provide evidence of English language proficiency.

Other Qualifications Completed in Year 12

If you have completed other recognised qualifications while still at school, these may also be assigned a selection rank and considered for admission to Griffith. Examples include Australian Music Examination Board qualifications.

If you have a number of different qualifications for which selection ranks can be assigned, normally the highest will be used for admission. You are also required to meet relevant subject prerequisites for the course you are applying for.  This will be satisfied by successful completion of Senior secondary subjects (or equivalent). Any additional admission requirements must also be satisfied.
