Alternative Entry - Sydney

The University of Notre Dame Australia places great value on applicants coming to the University through a variety of entry pathways.

If you have applied through the Notre Dame Admissions process, but have not been offered a place in your nominated course, you may be offered an alternative entry pathway. See alternative pathways here.

Successful completion of one of the following programs/methods will allow prospective students to apply for entry to their course of choice.

Notre Dame Tertiary Pathway Program
A full-time, thirteen week (one semester) alternative entry program that is available each semester.

Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT)
For those who have not been engaged in formal education for a period of time. For more information, visit

This option is only available to applicants over 20 years of age as at 1 March in the year of admission. A score of 150 for both the Multiple Choice component and the Written English component is required. STAT results are valid for five years.

Prospective students should note that completion of an alternative entry pathway does not guarantee entry into a course at Notre Dame.
