How to get into uni

Most high school students enter university via the traditional, competitive entry method, where offers are made to eligible applicants with the highest Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) until all places in the course are filled. Your child might also be eligible for guaranteed entry and bonus points.

However, an ATAR score isn’t the only way of getting into Flinders. We outline all the pathways and preparatory programs available below.

How to apply

When it’s time to apply, do this through the South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC).

We’ve got more information about how to apply, including when to apply and what happens after applying.
