Undergraduate Admissions Criteria

These are the general entry requirements for students who would like to apply for one of the Engineering Institute of Technology's Bachelor of Science degrees on campus.

Applicants with Higher Education

Entry Requirements

This applies to Australian students whose highest level of study since completing secondary school is a higher education course. This includes students who are currently studying with another higher education provider and want to transfer to a course at EIT. It also applies to students who are currently studying with EIT and wish to switch to a different course. Students who have completed a bridging or enabling course with a higher education provider are also considered to be applicants with higher education.

Entry Requirements:

Students must fulfil the following requirements:

  • A relevant (to the sub-discipline) Engineering Advanced Diploma or higher from an Australian higher education institution; OR
  • An overseas qualification equivalent to the above item from a structured program of learning that leads to the full or partial achievement of an officially accredited qualification undertaken at a tertiary institution such as a university, government technical college, or government recognized private college (EIT assesses overseas qualifications using Australian Government guidelines to determine their comparability to qualifications); AND
  • Satisfactory English language proficiency at an English pass level in an Australian Senior Certificate of Education or equivalent; or an IELTS score of 6.0 (with no individual band less than 5.5), or equivalent as outlined in the EIT Admissions Policy.

It is desirable that applicants hold a Senior Certificate with:

  • Advanced Mathematics; or WACE Mathematics: Methods; or equivalent
  • Physics and Chemistry, with equivalents considered.

Applicants with WACE Mathematics Applications (or equivalent) will be accepted, but EIT may also recommend a bridging course as a supplementary activity. To confirm that past studies in mathematics align with these requirements, applicants may compare the mathematics syllabus to the WACE here or contact an EIT Course Advisor for assistance:

Overseas qualification equivalency is assessed using on Country Education Profiles - an online qualifications recognition tool designed by the Australia Government Department of Education and Training to help organisations understand overseas higher education and postsecondary technical and vocational educational qualifications.
