Welcome / Wominjeka
Ready to apply directly to Swinburne? You're in the right place.
To begin an application, you may need some documents and information on-hand. What these are will depend on what type of applicant you are and what type of course you're applying for. As you progress through the process, the portal will let you know what's required at any one time.
If you find that you don't have the required supporting documentation or information, you can always save your application and come back to it.
Applying can sometimes be an involved process. That's why we're always on hand to help, either in person, on the phone, or through video chat. An application help appointment can cover everything from what to apply for, to going through the process with you step-by-step.
You'll find more about your application support options at the end of this page.
If you've completed previous study or have relevant work experience, you might be eligible for what we call advanced standing, or recognition of prior learning. You can include your relevant study in your general online application, though any work experience will be assessed after you've received an offer, and can even be assessed after you've commenced your course.
You will most likely hear about your application's outcome within a week. However, some factors that can contribute to the processing time are the:
- course you are applying for
- time of the year
- completeness of the application (for example: if your application is missing any required documents).
