Admission to UNSW Science degrees is based on academic merit. Whether you are a school leaver or older, you must be able to provide evidence that you have the potential for tertiary study.
High School Leavers
There are no pre-requisites for our undergraduate degree programs – entry is based on academic merit (ATAR or equivalent). Make sure you find out whether you are eligible for bonus points on your ATAR.
Even if you don’t have the right ATAR (or no ATAR at all), there are still many options for non-high school leavers to gain entry to UNSW, including the following programs:
- UNSW Prep (for those aged 17-21)
- University Preparation Program (UPP) - watch our video (right) to learn more about this program.
