Points Required for Entry to Courses

The details of minimum points scores given are for general information only and do not form part of any contract. They are not intended for use in determining whether any individual applicant is or is not entitled to an offer of a higher education place.

There are a number of variables that can influence the points for a particular course, and making course selections based on the previous year's points is never advised (applicants should place their courses in genuine order of preference).
