Mature Age Students

A significant proportion of Notre Dame's undergraduate students are in this category, particularly at the Broome Campus. Mature age students are required to address the following criteria when applying for admission:

  • Completed Application Form for undergraduate studies.
  • Academic records indicating the applicant's preparation for academic study. This may be by way of proof of earlier study (including TER), or through relevant life experiences, or through the results of the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT).
  • A Personal Statement, in the form of an essay, outlining individual qualities, goals and motivation for seeking admission to The University of Notre Dame Australia.
  • Names of two referees.

If the information gained from the above indicates the applicant has the potential to succeed at Notre Dame, he or she is invited to an interview. The interview completes Notre Dame's admission procedure.

The Admissions Committee makes the final decision after considering all aspects of the candidate's application.
