In 2018 and 2019, the amount of Commonwealth Grant Scheme (CGS) funding payable for bachelor degree courses will be capped at the 2017 funding level for each university.
This means that, given the high demand for Swinburne bachelor degrees in 2018, some courses will fill up sooner. However, do not panic! There are still loads of options available to you if you miss out on your first choice. Why not consider courses that have similar outcomes to your preferred course, or think about an advanced diploma, diploma or certificate, which can give you practical, applicable skills sooner.
Most bachelor degrees consider the ATAR as the key requirement in selection. A minimum ATAR is the ATAR most Year 12 applicants need to achieve to receive an offer for a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) in a particular course. The recent changes to CSP funding are likely to affect the minimum ATAR for courses in the future. However, for 2018 courses, Swinburne’s minimum ATARs will remain unchanged.
The ATARs listed are provided as a guide only for 2018 entry – additional selection criteria may apply to some courses. You should check the VTAC website for full entry requirements.
