Essential information

How to apply (BIT)

To apply for the Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) Co-operative Scholarship program you must apply through both the Universities Admissions Centre and directly through UTS.

Successful applicants are selected on a combination of interview + ATAR. It is expected that students will achieve an ATAR around 90 or higher. However, quite often we'll take in applicants whose ATAR falls in the range of 85 to 99.50.

So don't be too scared to apply - you have to be in it to win it!

Final acceptance into this course for 2017 will be determined following the release of HSC results in late December 2016.

More BIT interview advice

Considering taking a gap year?

You should still apply in the year you are finishing school and attend the interview if selected. Then, if you are short-listed and subsequently decide to defer starting your university study for 12 months, you can request that your application and interview report be re-considered as an application for the following year's intake. This would mean you might not need to attend an interview the following year, when you may be overseas.

Note: this arrangement can only be made for short-listed applicants.

Want defer your offer?

It is difficult to defer an offer of enrolment into the Bachelor of Information Technology course because of our reliance on annual sponsor support to provide scholarships, industry placements and other essential elements of the course. Unlike other courses, we cannot guarantee how many sponsored places will be available in future years.
