Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT)

A common admission test is the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT), which can cover areas such as written English, numeracy and your ability to interpret data and information.

The STAT Multiple Choice Test may be used as a basis of admission for selected courses (where noted under Entry Requirements on the course page).

To be eligible for admissions on the basis of the STAT, you must be:

  • a Non-Year 12 applicant (you must not be a current (2019) or recent Year 12 student (or equivalent) within the last 2 years (i.e. 2018 or 2017)), and
  • at least 19 years old on 31st December in the year you commence your studies

Swinburne will consider your STAT results if you have:

  • no prior or recent secondary school results (Year 12 or equivalent) or work experience that meet the entry requirements for the course, or
  • no recent TAFE or university results (within the last 7 years) that could be considered for entry, or
  • TAFE or other tertiary results with ungraded assessment (only have pass/fail results)
