General admission requirements
There’s more than one way to become a Guild student. If your goal is to get a degree and use it to improve yourself, your community or the lives of others, Australian Guild of Music Education [AGME] is the place for you.
Applicants who meet the minimum entry requirements for a course may be selected for a course at AGME. However, meeting the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee selection.
Applicants may be offered a place once AGME has assessed:
- your formal academic qualifications and results
- whether you meet any course prerequisites
- your English language proficiency
- whether you meet any legal or administrative requirements (see below)
- the availability of student places and learning resources.
Access to internet
Online learning resources and materials are integral to teaching and learning activities and assessment tasks for AGME courses. All online students must have regular access to an internet-connected computer, which is capable of communicating with AGME’s online systems.
English language proficiency
All students at AGME are expected to be proficient in written and spoken English. Each AGME course has minimum English language requirements. These requirements must be met in addition to academic entry requirements.
Most of our undergraduate domestic students enter via direct entry. If you’ve completed Year 12, the IB, or an equivalent qualification in Australia, and meet all the entry requirements, then you are eligible to apply.
If you don’t meet the requirements for direct entry, consider these options.
A graded Australian TAFE qualification provides an excellent pathway to the Bachelor of Music. If you have successfully completed a certificate IV, diploma, or the first year of an advanced diploma, this may help you enter the degree. If you gain a place at the Guild, you may be eligible for some credit towards your course for any graded TAFE studies you have completed.
Transferring from another course
Most courses accept internal transfers from other Guild courses, as well as transfers from other universities. Ask the faculty managing the course you are looking to transfer into about the average grade required, as well as any extra requirements you may need to meet.
