Entry to all Cairnmillar programs is competitive.

The entry requirements listed on our Course Pages are the minimum to apply and be considered for entry, meeting the minimum to apply will not guarantee entry. We do not have a specific WAM or grade based cut-off for offers. Selection at Cairnmillar is holistic and includes factors other than academic grades. There is no guaranteed entry grade and prior grades for those made offers will vary.

We take into consideration a number of factors in addition to academic results, in particular performance in the interview and academic references may impact your chances of an offer in your program of choice.

Please note: experience and references cannot be taken instead of the required academic results. Where we have a minimum grade range to apply this is strictly enforced and is a genuine minimum grade for further consideration. Meeting the minimum cut-off to apply is not normally enough for an offer to be made.

Clinical Psychology: While a high H2A (75%+) is the required minimum to apply, the WAM to be competitive for the MPsych(Clinical) is normally in the 80-85+ range (e.g. H1 or HD). We do not normally have capacity to interview applicants with a WAM below 80 for the Clinical Psych programs.
