Academic achievement & English language proficiency
The minimum academic requirement for full entry and enrolment is a Bachelor degree or international equivalent with a minimum GPA of 5.0/7.0 (if supplemented with 3 years of relevant work experience).
Applicants will be ranked on a GPA ('GPA1') that is calculated using all but the last semester (or equivalent) of the Bachelor degree (or equivalent) used for admission purposes.
If required, ranking may further be confirmed on the basis of:
° a GPA ('GPA2') calculated on semesters 4 & 5 of a three year OR semesters 6 & 7 of a four year, Bachelor degree used for admission purposes; and
° demonstrating higher-level English language proficiency.
Prior to enrolment at ANU, all students who gain entry must submit their awarded Bachelor degree (or equivalent), to confirm minimum requirements were met.

Assessment of Qualifications
Unless otherwise indicated, ANU will accept all Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications or international equivalents that meet or exceed the published admission requirements of our programs, provided all other admission requirements are also met. Where an applicant has more than one completed tertiary qualification, ANU will base assessment on the qualification that best meets the admission requirements for the program. Find out more about the Australian Qualifications Framework: www.aqf.edu.au
ANU uses a 7-point Grade Point Average (GPA) scale. All qualifications submitted for admission at ANU will be converted to this common scale, which will determine if an applicant meets our published admission requirements. Find out more about how a 7-point GPA is calculated for Australian universities: www.uac.edu.au/future-applicants/admission-criteria/tertiary-qualifications
Unless otherwise indicated, where an applicant has more than one completed tertiary qualification, ANU will calculate the GPA for each qualification separately. ANU will base assessment on the best GPA of all completed tertiary qualifications of the same level or higher.
