Domestic undergraduate applications

Undergraduate programs are typically the first degree or program taken at university and include associate degrees, diplomas and bachelor degrees.


You need an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) or equivalent that meets the requirement for your desired program. ATAR requirements are specified within the undergraduate program listings.

If you are a domestic applicant who has completed a qualification overseas your qualification will be converted to an ATAR equivalent when you apply. As a domestic applicant, you apply through Universities Admission Centre (UAC).

If you didn't receive a sufficient ATAR or equivalent you may consider applying to ANU via other pathways.

Some programs have additional requirements or prerequisites. Any additional admission requirements or prerequisites will be included in the program listing and in the relevant Universities Admission Centre (UAC) information.

All applicants must meet English language requirements.
