Supporting documentation

All applications require supporting documentation at the point of submission.

Requirements vary from course to course, so make sure you check what supporting documentation is required for your application using Course Search.

Proof of identity and citizenship

All applications require proof of your identity and citizenship. Different types of proof are acceptable depending on whether you are an Australian citizen, permanent resident or other type of citizen.

If you are an Australian citizen, proof may be one of the following:

  • if you were born before 20 August 1986 – Australian birth certificate or current Australian passport
  • if you were born after 20 August 1986 – current Australian passport or Australian citizenship certificate.

If you are a permanent resident (including humanitarian visa holders), you must provide a current passport showing permanent resident visa or permanent resident visa documents.

All other students (including international on-campus students) must provide a current passport (including visa) or, for asylum seekers and refugees, an ImmiCard.

Supporting documentation must be certified as a true and correct copy of the original. This can be done by the issuing body. You can also get documents certified by a person qualified to witness a statutory declaration, such as a police officer, chemist, doctor or an accountant. Photocopies of previously certified documents are not acceptable.

You’ll need a combination of the following documents, including at least one photo ID:

  • Australian Driver’s Licence
  • Australian Passport
  • Australian Visa (with Foreign Passport)
  • ImmiCard
  • Australian Citizenship Certificate
  • Medicare Card
  • Australian Birth Certificate

Some examples of combinations are:

  • Australian Driver's Licence and Green Medicare Card
  • Australian Birth Certificate and Australian Driver's Licence
  • Australian passport only
