  • Students doing higher degrees: You must show an average grade of 1.4 or better in your first degree; if you have results from your current degree program, you must also provide a current transcript of records from the relevant examinations office)

The overall assessment of an applicant’s potential may include special successes, awards and prizes in supraregional, academically-oriented competitions; particular personal or family circumstances such as illness or disability, duty of care for one’s own child/ren - particularly as a single parent - or responsibility for close relatives in need of care; working in the family business, working parallel to studies; particular family or migrant origins.
