All applicants in the non-school leaver category must also apply through the Victorian Tertiary Admission Centre (VTAC) and the majority must sit the The Australian Law Schools Entrance Test (ALSET).
The ALSET is compulsory for most applicants applying for entry into any of Deakin University's undergraduate law degree programs: Arts/Law, Commerce/Law, Criminology/Law, International Studies/Law, Law (off campus), Law (on campus), Law/Science, Property and Real Estate/Law and Management/Law.
Selection for non current year 12 (NonY12) is based on the following: ALSET (100%), or ALSET (50%) combined with a GPA (50%) or GPA from Bachelor level and postgraduate studies from courses undertaken during or after 2004.
You are exempt from sitting the ALSET if you have:
* tertiary studies must be at Bachelor level or above for exemption to apply
If applicants have not achieved the required minimum tertiary GPA or ATAR to be considered for admission then the ALSET result and GPA/ATAR will be weighted 50:50.
Whether you complete the ALSET or meet with one of the ALSET exemption criterias, please note places in Law are not guaranteed. ALSET or ATAR exempt candidates are deemed eligible to be considered for offer only.
If you are unsure whether or not you need to sit the ALSET you should email your questions regarding the ALSET to the Faculty of Business and Law campus office that you wish to apply for.
In the email please include the details of the grounds on which you believe you are eligible for an exemption.
Please Note: If you sit the ALSET overseas through ACER in 2013 you will not be able to apply for the test through VTAC.
Visit the VTAC admissions tests webpage for further information about the ALSET.
