Dean's Merit List
The Dean’s Merit List Award recognises and rewards the outstanding academic achievements of students in the single and combined Bachelor of Laws, Juris Doctor, Master of Intellectual Property, Master of Laws and Graduate Diploma in Migration Law and Practice.
Appearing on the Dean’s Merit List for Academic Excellence places you amongst the highest achieving students within UTS Law, and is a respected mark of academic excellence across all universities and in the employment sector.
Students are not required to apply for this award. Selection is based on achieving a WAM (weighted average mark) of 80 or higher for all law subjects and:
- Single and combined Bachelor of Law students must have completed a minimum of 50% law subjects in the year of the award;
- Students must have completed a minimum of 12 credit points in law subjects in the year of the award.
A Certificate of Award and Letter of Commendation is presented at the Faculty's annual prize-giving event. The Award will be included on the Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) which accompanies graduates' Testamur.
UTS Faculty of Law recognises the accomplishments of our high performing students each year with the generous support of our donors, who join with us in recognising the efforts of our high achievers.
