4. Gather your documents
You’ll need the following items and supporting documents to get your application underway:

- Curriculum vitae (CV): If you need to demonstrate work experience to enter your chosen course, you’ll need to provide a copy of your current CV with your online application.
- Proof of name change: If your transcripts or qualifications are under a different name, you’ll need to provide proof of name change (eg, a marriage certificate).
Initial teacher education students
If you intend on studying teaching, you’ll also need to complete the following:

Additional requirements for some courses
Most undergraduate course applications are submitted via a state Tertiary Admissions Centre (TAC).
Each state TAC operates a centralised application system and provides information and support for future students.
You can apply for entry to your preferred undergraduate course and campus at the relevant TAC website:
In some circumstances, you apply for your undergraduate course directly to us. This can happen when:
VTAC applications have closed and you did not submit an application
- you’re applying for a business or law course and you have not recently completed secondary education.
- To find out if your preferred undergraduate course accepts direct applications, visit the relevant course page.
