When applying to study at UC, international applicants should include the following supporting documents along with their application:

  • evidence of your English proficiency level (if applicable)
  • evidence of your work experience in the form of a current resume and statements of employment which should be an official document from your employer outlining your job title, responsibilities and duration of employment (if applicable)
  • subject or unit outlines from your previous study (if you are seeking credit or advanced standing into your UC course)

If your documents are under a previous name, we will require official evidence of your change of name.

If your documents are not in English, we will require certified translations in addition to copies of your original documents.

If you need extra help with your English proficiency, the UCC English Language Centre (UCCELC) offers English preparation courses. Visit UCCELC's information page for more information.

Our admission dates let you know when applications are open. If you are applying through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) check the UAC admission dates as they may differ from ours.

Some courses have an early closing date due to the additional time required to assess applications. Check the Admissions tab on your course search to see if your course has an early application closing date.
