Frequently asked questions

  • Do I have to apply online?

  • Why do I need to supply an Academic Transcript with subjects completed by year and semester?

    Your most up-to-date academic transcript(s) must be submitted with your application so that we can calculate a University of Melbourne equivalent GPA for entry into your program.

    Transcripts should be submitted with a grading scheme indicating any grades (e.g. A, B, C, etc.) and their respective marks or range (e.g. A = 90–100, B = 80–89).

  • I’m a University of Melbourne student. Do I need to submit my transcripts?

    University of Melbourne students do not need to submit a transcript. Please ensure that you use your student ID to lodge an application, so that we can access your results.

  • Why do I need to supply syllabus/subject outline with my application?

    Applicants for the Master of Engineering must provide a detailed syllabus or subject description for all technical or engineering subjects completed in their undergraduate degree. This enables the academic coordinator to assess for credit (advanced standing), which will be awarded at the time of application and outlined in the offer letter.

    You should also submit a detailed subject description for all pre-requisite subjects, for example, tertiary-level maths and science.

    Applications for the Master of Engineering without a detailed syllabus or subject description will not be assessed.
