Before you apply
Choose a course and check your eligibility
UC offers a wide variety of courses, from pathway programs that help you gain entry to university, all the way to the highest-level research degrees.

Check the Admission section on your course search for admission requirements for your chosen course.
Have your supporting documents ready
When applying to study at UC, international applicants should include the following supporting documents along with their application:
- certified copies of all relevant academic transcripts and award certificates from all your complete or incomplete study
