Apply direct to Notre Dame

We know that you’re a person, not a number.

That’s why our unique admissions process goes beyond a single score. We are more interested in the person behind it. We consider not only on your academic record but your personal qualities, your gifts and talents, your motivation to study, and your contribution to school or community life. Plus you'll get the opportunity to ask us questions when we get to know you at an interview.

Here’s what you’ll need to apply online for a tertiary pathway, undergraduate or postgraduate program:

  • Certified copies of your academic basis for entry
  • Certified copy of your proof of citizenship/residency
  • Any other supporting documentation including CV, references (optional)
  • Personal statement – 300 words (not applicable for international students) - see our tips.
  • Certified copies of proof of English language proficiency (international students only)
  • If you are applying for a postgraduate research program, you’ll need an initial research proposal
