### What marks or grades do I need?

Direct entry to our undergraduate programs for international students is determined by an international selection rank or course cut-off score. Each degree has a specific international selection rank which is converted into the minimum score you need to achieve in your overseas qualification to be considered for entry.

The tables below provide international selection rank conversions for qualifications from over 40 countries, including many globally-recognised qualifications such as GCE A-Levels and the International Baccalaureate (IB):

- 2020 International Undergraduate Academic Requirements - Bachelor Degrees
- 2020 International Undergraduate Academic Requirements - Double Degrees

#### Worried that you will not meet the minimum score for your program?

Not a problem - please have a look at our **International Academic Entry Program **where we may be able consider your eligibility based on your English results and academic performance in mathematics and other subjects.

#### Can't find your score or qualification?

If you cannot find the required score for your qualification, please do not hesitate to submit an application and our admissions team will assess your eligibility.

## International Academic Entry Program

Should you not meet the minimum cut-off score for entry into your selected undergraduate course, you may still be able to qualify for admission under our **International Academic Entry Program (IAEP)**. Under this entry program, we will consider your performance in individual subjects that match your strengths to one of our world-class courses.

Provided you already meet the English requirements for your selected degree program and have a minimum overall average of at least 65%, we will consider your performance in your senior high school final-year Mathematics and other subjects as an alternative indicator.

Listed below are the minimum Mathematics and other subject scores that you would need to achieve in the Higher School Certificate (HSC) for entry to each undergraduate program. The HSC is the Year 12 senior high school qualification that is completed by students residing in New South Wales, Australia. For the purpose of the IAEP, we will consider equivalent final-year Mathematics and other subjects from recognised international senior high school qualifications or university entry examinations.

You **do not have to apply** for the IAEP. If you do not meet the course cut-off, our Admissions team will automatically consider your senior high school Mathematics and other subject scores to assess your eligibility.

## Postgraduate Academic Entry Requirements

### Masters (by Coursework)

Entry requirements for Masters (by Coursework) programs at Macquarie University are set out in Coursefinder.

In general, entry requires a Bachelor degree from a recognised institution considered equivalent to an Australian bachelor degree (Level 7 on the Australian Qualifications Framework). Some courses may require previous study or work experience in a related area, a higher level qualification such as an Honours Bachelor (AQF Level 8), or other additional entry criteria that must be satisfied.

#### Requirements for entry in 2020

Courses may state a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) requirement, which is a reflection of your overall performance in your previous qualification.

The document below provides indicative equivalencies for Macquarie's WAM system against grading schemes used in 27 different countries - this includes the minimum Pass standard considered for entry to programs with no specified WAM:

#### Can't find your score or qualification?

If you cannot find the required score for your qualification or are unsure if you meet requirements, please do not hesitate to submit an application and our admissions team will assess your eligibility.

### Masters (by Research)

To apply for a Masters (by Research) or PhD program, you should be able to demonstrate research experience in your previous studies. Please refer to the Higher Degree Research website for more information on eligibility requirements and how to apply.
