  • Guaranteed Entry Scheme

The University offers four types of guaranteed entry pathways to its professional entry graduate courses.  For each pathway, students must enrol in an undergraduate degree at the University of Melbourne to be eligible.  A guaranteed entry is available for most graduate degrees, depending on the ATAR a student achieves:

 

ATAR of 99.90+ Chancellor’s Scholars Program A guaranteed CSP place in any professional masters degrees, and no minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) in the undergraduate degree is required although prerequisites for the graduate degree must be met
ATAR of 96.00 – 99.85+ A guaranteed CSP place in a range of graduate degrees, subject to meeting the prerequisites and achieving a GPA of 65% in the undergraduate degree studied
ATAR above 94.00 A guaranteed fee place for students who meet the prerequisites and achieving the required GPA of 75% in the undergraduate degree studied
No ATAR These guaranteed entry pathways are based on academic performance in a current University of Melbourne undergraduate degree, and are not subject to any ATAR requirement.
