The Australian Qualifications Framework is a national system established by the Australian Government linking courses and qualifications. The Framework provides guidelines for learning outcomes, pathways, assessment and accreditation of qualifications, allowing students to move easily between levels of study and institutions, receiving credit for previous study.
There are 38 public universities and 3 private universities in Australia. Requirements for admission to all programs are set by individual universities.
Admission to undergraduate programs is usually based on successful completion of a total of 13 years of school education though some institutions use interviews, portfolios or demonstrated aptitude and most provide alternative pathways for mature-age (non-school leaver) students.
Admission to postgraduate programs is based on the level of achievement in previous higher education studies. Admission to doctoral programs is usually based on high achievement in a Research Masters Degree or completion of a Bachelor Degree with First Class Honours or Second Class Honours Division A.
