Academic background and requirement

Applicants who complete a recognised secondary/senior secondary/post-secondary/tertiary sequence of study will be assessed on the basis of an equivalent selection rank that is calculated upon application. 

Prerequisites

There are no formal program prerequisites and many first-year science courses assume little specific knowledge. The exceptions are:

  • For many of the biology majors, chemistry is a requirement, therefore it is recommended that students have at least an ACT minor (but preferably a major) in chemistry, or successful completion of a bridging course in chemistry, or multistrand science in NSW, or equivalent.

Chemistry is essential for all later-year courses in the biological streams of biochemistry and cell biology, microbiology and immunology, molecular genetics, animal and human physiology, and some parts of botany and neuroscience. 

  • CHEM1101: ACT major in Chemistry, or successful completion of a bridging course in chemistry, or multistrand science in NSW, or equivalent, is required. Chemistry is essential for all later-year courses in chemistry.
  • MATH1003: Assumed knowledge: ACT Mathematical Methods (major)/Further Mathematics/Specialist Mathematics (major)/ Specialist Methods or NSW HSC Mathematics or equivalent
  • MATH1005: ACT Mathematical Methods (major)/Further Mathematics/Specialist Mathematics (major)/ Specialist Methods or NSW HSC Mathematics or equivalent
  • MATH1013: A satisfactory pass in ACT Specialist Mathematics Major - Minor or NSW HSC Mathematics Extension 1 or equivalent. Students with a good pass in ACT Mathematical Methods or NSW HSC Mathematics or equivalent will be considered
  • MATH1115: A satisfactory pass in ACT Specialist Mathematics double major or NSW HSC Mathematics Extension 2 or equivalent. Students with excellent marks in either ACT Specialist Mathematics major-minor or NSW HSC Mathematics Extension 1 or equivalent may be permitted to enrol
  • PHYS1101: There is a corequisite of MATH1013/1115. See the entries above. There is no formal physics prerequisite but preparation is assumed and recommended. Recommended preparation is - NSW: a high standard in 2 unit physics or a multistrand science; ACT: a high standard in physics (major).

Additional Requirements

Admission to the Bachelor of Health Science also involves an assessment of suitability based on the Bachelor of Health Science Supplementary Form. Submission of this form is compulsory for all applicants.

There are approximately 60 places available in each intake of the Bachelor of Health Science. Thirty percent of offers made to domestic students are reserved for students from rural backgrounds. 

Applicants from a rural background are asked to indicate this in their supplementary form and are required to upload supporting documentation with their application. 

Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander applicants are encouraged to apply and are asked to indicate this in their supplementary form.

Foundation Studies 

Foundation Studies is for students who have not studied an Australian Year 12 curriculum. It has been designed to give you the right academic preparation for the ANU Bachelor degree you want to study. 

Compulsory courses include academic English, plus mathematics or research skills. You will receive about 20 hours of face-to-face class time per week. 

Over 90 per cent of Foundation Studies graduates receive an offer or conditional offer for an ANU Bachelor Degree. To be eligible for Foundation Studies, you must have completed an international equivalent to Australian Year 11.
