How to Apply

Australian students apply through the University Admissions Centre (UAC). International students undertaking Australian Year 12 examinations should also lodge an application for admission through UAC.

All other international students should lodge an application directly with UNSW, preferably using the University's Apply Online service.

Selection for undergraduate programs at UNSW is based on academic merit by assessment of completion of matriculation through secondary studies (such as the NSW HSC or equivalent). Non-high school students or those with qualifications below UNSW's entry requirements, may apply via pathways such as the University Preparation Program.

Students who have completed a Bachelor’s degree at another university and who want to apply to UNSW for the Honours year only, should apply directly to UNSW. They cannot apply online, and should contact the Faculty of Science for an application form.

Further information about applying to UNSW as an undergraduate student is available from the Student Recruitment Office or from the Physics Friend.
