Our Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) is an equity-focused scheme aimed at helping Year 12 students gain entry into university.
While each university will set their own criteria for SRS, we are focused on supporting students who have the potential to succeed at university, but may not receive an offer based on their ATAR or inpUTS alone.
To be considered for SRS, you need to be eligible through the Educational Access Scheme (EAS) (opens external site) for:
- School environment (S01C and S01E only) or
- Financial hardship (F01A, F01B, F01C or F01D), and
- Achieve a minimum ATAR of 69 or 80 for Law courses.
- Submit an EAS application through UAC
If you’re attending an eligible EAS-listed school (S01C or S01E), you do not need to submit an EAS application as this is automatically considered.
- Submit your SRS application through UAC
Applications open 1 August 2018 and close 28 September 2018.
- Set your preferences
Set your UTS course preference by Sunday 11 November 2018.
- SRS eligibility
Both UAC and UTS will notify you of your SRS eligibility from Thursday 15 November 2018.
We will make SRS offers to eligible students in the UAC December Round 2, Thursday 20 December 2018.
We will confirm your SRS eligibility following the ATAR release. To receive this advice, you will need to have already set a UTS course as one of your preferences.
If eligible applicants exceed positions available, we will finalise offers based on ATAR and school feedback.
When starting at UTS, tailored support programs are offered to all SRS students to make the transition to university easier.
SRS students can also consider applying for one of the many scholarships that we offer. Over 1000 scholarship offers are made to students on an annual basis, providing payment which can support any personal or study costs you have while studying with us.
