How to apply (BIT)

Abstract, technology abstract

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 the interview and ATAR. Successful students generally achieve an ATAR around 90 or higher. However, quite often we'll take in applicants whose ATAR falls in the range of 85 to 99.95.

So don't be discouraged in applying  you have to be in it to win it!

Final acceptance into this course for 2018 will be determined following the release of HSC results in late December 2017.

If you would like to find out more about the course and scholarship, visit our BIT Information Evening.

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 reconsidered as an application for the following year's intake. This means you may 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 to defer your offer?

It is difficult to defer an offer of enrolment into the Bachelor of Information Technology due to 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.
