Undergraduate domestic applications

Starting at a new education institution can be daunting, but applying for a place shouldn't be. Here's a guide to help you through the application process at IBIBS.

Step 1 - Before you apply

Undergraduate domestic students

The first step is to figure out which course you want to study, and if you meet all of that course's entry requirements. At this stage, you should:

Check that you:

  • Satisfy the entry requirements for your course
  • Meet the English language requirements
  • Know what the fees are and what scholarships are available to help you meet them
  • Know what financial assistance is available to you while you study

Step 2 - How to apply

Undergraduate domestic students

Domestic students commencing in the first-year apply for undergraduate courses through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). Through VTAC, you can list up to 12 course preferences. You should list courses in your order of preference with the course of greatest interest listed first. Be sure that your application is finalised by the VTAC due dates.

Local students studying overseas

If you are a domestic student, you must submit your final results, when available, to VTAC. Normally, selection is based on original or certified copies of final academic results.

Transferring to a course after first year

You may apply to gain entry to a course at second year level or higher. If the course is available to commencing students, you should apply in the standard manner, through VTAC.

If the course you wish to apply for is no longer available to commencing students you should contact IBIBS Student Centre to check if later year entry is possible and if so, what the application process is.

Step 3 - After you apply - Accepting your offer
