Essential information

Bonus Schemes

As an incoming student of the Faculty of Engineering & IT, you could be eligible for additional bonus points to contribute to your ATAR.


UTS Bonus Points

Bonus points can be added to your ATAR on the basis of certain subjects taken in the HSC.
Your ATAR may be adjusted, giving you up to 5 bonus points, as a result of your performance in certain HSC subjects that have a connection to engineering or IT.
UTS: Year 12 Bonus Scheme has more information about how bonus points work.

Engineering Questionnaire

If your ATAR falls short of the course cut-off subsequent to bonus points being added, your ranking may be adjusted based on the submission of your responses to an online questionnaire.
The questionnaire will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
  • Motivation you show
  • Demonstrated interest in engineering
  • Affinity for the engineering discipline
Even if you believe that you will receive a high ATAR, it is strongly recommended that you complete the questionnaire in addition to your UAC application.
