At Notre Dame we know that you're a person, not a number. We consider who you are, what you have done and what you want to do with your life. So if you are looking to study at the University there are a number of entry pathways available to you:
Tertiary Pathway Program
Notre Dame's Tertiary Pathway Program (TPP) is an enabling program designed for students who have not met the requirements for entry into the University’s undergraduate degree programs.
Following successful completion of the TPP, students may gain entry to undergraduate studies in the School of Arts & Sciences, School of Business, School of Education, School of Health Sciences, School of Nursing & Midwifery and School of Philosophy & Theology.
The Tertiary Pathway Program is offered at our three Campuses in Sydney, Fremantle and Broome.
Recent secondary education
For applicants who have completed Year 12 or equivalent within the last two years and are using their ATAR or results in the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE), Higher School Certificate (HSC), International Baccalaureate (IB) or equivalent.
Higher Education study
For applicants who have completed at least 6 months of a university degree either at Notre Dame or another university.
Vocational education and training
For applicants who have completed a VET qualification at Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma level at a TAFE or other Registered Training Organisation. Students who have successfully completed a Certificate IV level qualification at TAFE after Year 12 are considered to have met minimum entry requirements for most courses except Law, Physiotherapy and Education courses.
Work and life experience
For applicants who have:
- completed an acceptable Enabling or Bridging course
- completed the Special Tertiary Admission Test (STAT). Notre Dame requires applicants to complete both the Written English and Multiple Choice forms of the STAT. Applicants who are 20 years of age on or before March 1 of the year they are due to commence university study are eligible to sit the STAT. For more information, please visit STAT.
