We may consider a lower proportion where a student has performed consistently strongly in their computer science modules. Applicants with extensive Computer Science industrial experience and an honours degree in Computer Science, or its overseas equivalent, may also be considered for admission. In your application, you should demonstrate aptitude, knowledge and/or interest in three areas: - data analytics and/or statistics; - computational subjects; and - pathway specific requirements. These can be demonstrated by course units taken at undergraduate level and high school level, or professional experience. Please see our application and selection page for more detailed information.
