Closing dates

Applicants for courses with additional entry requirements require longer processing and assessment.

Offshore students should allow eight weeks before the course starts for courses with additional entry requirements, and six weeks for the other courses, to allow visa processing and flights to Sydney.

Onshore students should apply four weeks before the course starts for courses with additional entry requirements, and two weeks for the other courses.

Many popular courses however, will reach full capacity and require early payment to secure your place.
