You may be asked for greater clarity on previous study, especially if it is from overseas institutions. This concession may also be required in order to secure appropriate supervision.
Before applying to enrol in the course, check the requirements information available through Search Course Outlines.
Concession requests will be assessed based on departmental requirements on a case-by-case basis. These requests often take longer than other concession requests.
