Steps to study for international students

Research


Can you apply for undergraduate study through UAC? Do you meet our participating institutions' admission requirements? If not, think about pathway options.

Search for courses and take note of important dates in the application process.

Apply


Apply and pay before the end of September to avoid a significant increase to the processing charge.

After you apply you can log back in to your application to change your course preferences and track the status of your application.

Equity


ATARs are released mid-December.

The ATAR helps universities rank applicants for selection into their courses.


Preferences


After you receive your ATAR, you will have some time to update your preference list.
