As Australia uses a Federal system of government, responsibility for education, and admission to Technical and Further Education colleges and undergraduate degrees at universities for domestic students, are in the domain of  state and territory government. All states except Tasmania have centralized processing units for admission to undergraduate degrees for citizen and  Australian permanent residents. The Australian government operates the Higher Education Contribution Scheme for undergraduate students, so admission is rarely limited by prospective students’ ability to pay up-front. All states use a system that awards the recipient with an Equivalent National Tertiary Entrance Rank , or ENTER, and the award of an International Baccalaureate  meets the minimum requirements for admission in every state. The Special Tertiary Admissions Test is the standard test for non-school-leavers nationwide.
