6. Mandatory documentation

Ensure that you have collated the essential mandatory documents/academic records as listed below:                                   

  1. Academic transcripts of Undergraduate and Postgraduate studies

Combine all the documents relating to a single degree in to one so that, for example, if you have a bachelor degree and a graduate diploma you upload two documents. Each document would contain the transcript, grading scale, parchment and any other relevant documentation for that degree. Original or Certified copies of your documents may be requested by our assessment officers a later date. You will be contacted if these are required.

Include the following for each degree or award you have studied:

  • University academic mark sheet or transcript including details of courses/subjects undertaken and grades achieved. If your original transcript is not in English you must upload both the original and an official certified English language translation
  • University grading scale (often contained on the back page of your transcript)
  • University diploma supplement (if applicable)
  • Parchment/academic credential as evidence of conferral or completion date of your degree

2. Evidence of English language (international applicants only)

Your application cannot be assessed without appropriate evidence. This is especially important for international scholarship applications. See the English Language Requirements page for more information about the evidence required.

How to have your documents certified

 To have your documents certified, take originals and copies to:

  1. a Justice of the Peace, Commissioner of Oaths, Public Notary or other formally recognised authority (for example, a lawyer, doctor, police or university official).
  2. an authorised UniSA agent

A University of South Australia authorised education agent can email a copy of your original or certified documents to research.degrees@unisa.edu.au.
