UTS Entry Schemes
Early Entry schemes: Posted 21-10-13 Deadline - No Deadline
Year 12 students who’ve experienced educational disadvantage for more than 6 months during their HSC could be 10 points closer to studying with UTS in 2014. The UTS scheme, inpUTS, offers a 10 point concession to the entry requirements for any of our courses. The UTS Principals’ Recommendation Scheme (PRS) allows Principals within NSW & ACT to nominate students with strong capabilities and personal attributes, who are expected to be outside the 10 point concession available through inpUTS, but are still eligible for financial disadvantage through EAS. For students who excel in areas of sport or performance, the Elite Athletes and Performers special admission scheme (EAP) recognises that extensive training and performance can have an impact on HSC results. Eligible applicants are given a 5 point concession on the entry ATAR for their preferred course. Applications are made direct to UTS, and close on Thursday 31 October 2013.For more information about entry schemes visit the UTS website or call the Equity and Diversity Unit on 02 9514 1084.

Uni of Wollongong early entry - VERY IMPORTANT
Early Entry schemes: Posted 16-10-13 Deadline - No Deadline
I have been contacted by UOW and sent this to be given to Year 12 students: Any student who has not received their outcome by email is to contact us on 1300 367 869. Our staff are able to verbally confirm that they have been successful in their application to at least one course at UOW through EA. I would like to correct a number of misunderstandings that are in social media circulation about problems with offers, by emphasising that Not all applicants have been affected No applicant who was unsuccessful in applying for admission through EA was erroneously made an offer to UOW. All applicants who received an offer through EA for UOW still hold at least one valid offer to UOW, even if it is was not their first preference course. UOW’s Early Entry scheme is not conditional on receiving a published ATAR for the course. The only requirement to formalise the offer is for the applicant to have the course we have offered as their first preference by Tuesday 3 December to enable our offer to be formally issued through UAC in the early round of offers which are made on Wednesday 5 December. Those applicants through EA who were not successful in receiving any EA offer are still eligible to receive an offer from UOW through UAC in the main round in January 2014, provided their ATAR meets course entry requirements

Guaranteed Entry at Macquarie Uni
Early Entry schemes: Posted 17-9-13 Deadline - No Deadline
Get a head start with Macquarie's Guaranteed Entry Program. If you've listed Macquarie as your first preference and you meet the published ATAR, then you don't need to do anything else! While this year's ATAR cut-off is a good indication of next year's entry requirement, there's no guarantee that the ATAR cut-off won't change. So Macquarie has introduced our Guaranteed Entry Program, to give you the confidence that your ATAR result will definitely get you into your chosen degree. As soon as you receive your ATAR, you'll know whether you're guaranteed a place in your chosen Macquarie degree.
