English language proficiency
Applicants who cannot provide an assessable undergraduate qualification undertaken in English (from any country), must provide either:
- an original IELTS test result, showing a score of 6.5 or better, including a minimum score of 6.0 in the sub-bands (www.ielts.org); or
- an original TOEFL test result showing a score of 580 or better (min score of 237 for computer based), and a Test of Written English (TWE) score of at least 5.0 (www.toefl.org).
- Other evidence of ability to study in English may be considered, and any evidence should not be more than two (2) years old at the date of application.
If you do not meet the English Language entry requirement, Southern Cross University (SCU) has three NEAS accredited English Language Centres offering courses designed to assist international students with their language skills and prepare them for university studies.
For citizens of some countries, an IELTS test is required by the Government of Australia for the granting of a student visa. You are advised to contact the nearest Australian diplomatic mission to clarify this (www.immi.gov.au).
