Is Homeschooling Legal? (in Australia)
Australian Homeschool Groups

I would assume that since homeschooling is legal, Australian universities accept homeschoolers, but I can't give specifics.

Hi Sunnyangels,

The legal-ness of homeschooling in Australia varies from state to state. Some states have more homeschooler friendly laws than others. (Tasmania has particularly nice laws!) It has been awhile since I have checked into that, so I'm not all that up to date...

As for university, I was fully homeschooled and then went on to study at uni in Australia. I applied by way of the "alternative entrance" option, which meant I had to sit the STAT (a comprehension test) and write an essay explaining why I wanted to study my particular chosen course at my particular chosen university.

I studied via distance (from home) with the University of New England.

Hope that helps. Smile

G'day sunny, yes it is legal just that the laws are a pitta! I am seriously looking into joining an American umbrella school to try and avoid our nasty laws.

Our homeschooling magazine "Educational Choices" had a good article on how homeschooled students can go to uni. probably in issue 5 or 6. http://eleanor.sparks.to/

Yes !!!! Home education is legal in Australia. But, as you know the law differ from place to place. Australia may be one country but every state is totally different in regards to this.
Homeschooling networks can help you with legal information, but check for yourself - information may not be accurate or up-to-date.
