English Lvl 3 - Admission


Hey guys,

Is NCEA Lvl 3 English necessary for admission into Australian universities? From what I’ve read, this is the case but I just want to make sure. Are English-rich subjects (such as Lvl 3 History) able to be substituted for it?



It depends on the university program. Some programs such as Medicine are quite strict on really wanting a Level 3 English qualification and some alternatives like history, geography and art history don’t always cut the mustard. What type of degree are you looking into specifically as that changes the answer quite a bit?


Hey @jamie.beaton, thank you for your reply. Right now, I’m looking into doing a Commerce degree.
