UTS has a range of schemes that exist to help applicants increase their chances of being made an offer to study with us. We recognise there are certain circumstances that should be taken into consideration when applying. These include your academic performance in specific HSC subjects, interest in certain study areas, experiences of educational disadvantage, and/or your identity as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person.
If you're applying to UTS on the basis of your ATAR, there are several adjustment factors that can be taken into consideration in your application. These factors, which are recognised through the following admission schemes, can apply points in addition to your ATAR to become a selection rank. UTS then considers your application to study a course based on you selection rank, i.e. your ATAR plus any points you received as a result of any adjustment factors.
Year 12 subject scheme
If you're a current high school student, you're eligible for this scheme. The Year 12 subject scheme awards points towards your selection rank, based on your performance in selected high school subjects that are relevant to the course you’ve applied for.
Educational access schemes
UTS is committed to educational equity. We have a number of schemes that are designed to allow students from a wide range of backgrounds to access our courses.
Specific study area schemes
If you have an interest or aptitude in the study areas of business, engineering, information technology and science, there are schemes in place which take these into consideration in your application to study at UTS.
