Australian year 12 students
You can use your ATAR (Australian Tertiary Academic Rank) to apply for UOW College study. Indicative ATARs for the course you want to study can be found in Coursefinder. Please note: some UOW College courses have criteria for admission that are additional to your ATAR. These may include minimum age and English language requirements.
If you do not have an ATAR or your ATAR is not sufficient to meet the entry requirements to your selected course, alternate admission options may be available to enter some programs. These can include, completion of an Entrance Test, an assessment of individual HSC subject results or successful completion of a UOW College preparation program. Previous complete or incomplete higher education or vocational education and training study and work and life experience can also be used as a basis for admission (refer below).
I have faced some disadvantage in the last few years
UOW College provides courses tailored to students who have experienced a disadvantage during their secondary school education. If you have suffered hardship because of circumstances beyond your control, UOW College will consider this as part of the assessment of your application to study these courses. Hardship considerations include: financial hardship; disrupted schooling; home and environment responsibilities; English language difficulty; personal illness/disability. Hardship may also be considered alongside other admission criteria for entry to other UOW College courses.
Interstate or overseas year 12
You can use your ATAR (Australian Tertiary Academic Rank) or equivalent (e.g. ENTER, International Baccalaureate (IB) and QLD's Overall Position (OP)) to apply for study.
If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident who has completed your high school education overseas, and it is comparable to an Australian Year 12 qualification you may be able to use your results to study at UOW College. UOW College converts all results to an ATAR, so to be considered for admission, each applicant needs to reach the current minimum ATAR required for the course they are applying for.
Please apply directly to UOW or UOW College. The friendly team at UOW Future Students can advise if your qualification is equivalent to a Year 12 qualification in Australia and can be considered for admission.
