Who can Apply?


Before applying for a course, it will help to know what sort of applicant you are, what courses we offer, and what course you are eligible to apply for. 

An undergraduate degree is a program of study that leads to a bachelor's degree (generally three years) or an associate degree (generally two years).

  • You are eligible to apply for any of our programmes, should you meet the entry requirements.
  • Regardless of the subject combinations in high school (year 12) IBSU accepts both social science and science students interested in persuing any of our programmes.

Attendance Mode

Campus Student

For campus students, the dominant mode of delivery is through attendance at classes and tutorials in person at our University campus.

Classes vary in size from 20 to 80 students; tutorials are generally smaller, more informal and allow for open discussion of issues raised in classes.

Assessment may take a variety of forms, including written work and tests undertaken in class, participation in class or sessions online and final examinations each semester. Fieldwork or practical experience can also form a large part of the content and assessment of some units.
