The admission criteria for the Associate Degree in Applied Health and Community Support is open to applicants from a broad range of backgrounds. You can gain admission to the Associate Degree in the following ways:
- ATAR Entry
- College entry
- TAFE entry
- General Entry
- Alternative Entry
- Capability statement
If you've just finished school, the following will apply to you:
ATAR entry. An ATAR result of 40 or greater.
College entry. A minimum level of study undertaken in Year 11 and 12 at Level 2 or above. This includes Satisfactory Achievements (SA) in English and Mathematics, and SA results in three other Level 2 subjects at Year 11 and 12 standard, with awards spread across both years.
TAFE entry. A TAFE certificate III or higher (related or unrelated).
General entry. Meet the broader general entry requirements for the University, which are SA results in at least four Tasmanian Qualifications Authority (TQA) level 3 accredited courses or a Year 11/12 ATAR.
For applicants with Year 11 and 12 College results or University academic records, UTAS will attempt to access these transcripts on your behalf. You will not need to provide any documentary evidence at this stage, and we will contact you if anything further is required.
If you're a mature age student or don't meet the above requirements, the following will apply to you:
Alternative entry. Demonstrate through work experience, competencies, or previous education that you are eligible for entry.
Capability statement. Prospective students who have been employed full or part-time in a related area may submit a statement and resume for review by the relevant Course Coordinator.
Applicants need to be aware that in order to be employed in the health and community services industry, they will need to meet certain compliance and regulatory requirements, such as working with vulnerable people registration and police records checks.
It is likely you will need to submit some documentation to support your application. If you are not sure what documentation to provide, don't worry, an Admissions Officer will review your application and will let you know if anything further is needed.
