 TUT Admission Point Score System

This system was developed to assist prospective students to check
if they meet the minimum course entry requirements before they
apply for a specific course at TUT.

Please note: The result report only gives an outcome of the
minimum course entry requirements. This result does not imply
that a prospective student has automatically applied for the course.

It is important to know that each course has its own specific
admission requirements.

A prospective student will not be admitted to any qualification without submitting a formal application form with all prescribed supporting documents and completing all official admission procedures – refer to the TUT prospectuses for detailed requirements and procedures.
