Guaranteed Entry Pathways for current undergraduates

A Guaranteed Entry Pathway is one way for you to be guaranteed a place in a graduate program on completion of your University of Melbourne undergraduate degree.

There are a number of different categories of guaranteed entry pathway, each with a different combination of requirements as outlined in the table below.

Please note that a large proportion of offers into graduate programs at the University of Melbourne will continue to go to students who are not necessarily eligible for a Guaranteed Entry Pathway. These offers are based on performance in undergraduate studies and other applicable selection criteria.

For more information on academic prerequisites and other selection criteria, refer to the University's Course Search tool.

The University offers four types of guaranteed entry pathways to our professional entry graduate courses. For each pathway, you must enrol in an undergraduate degree at the University of Melbourne to be eligible.
