Subject bonus points
Information for 2014–15 admissions
Information for 2014–15 subject bonuses and which insitutions will be using them will be available in late September 2014.
Some UAC institutions may allocate bonus points in recognition of your performance in Year 12 subjects relevant to the course/s for which you have applied. These are subject bonus points.
Bonus points do not change your ATAR; they change your selection rank for a particular course or institution. As the bonus points schemes for each institution, and often for each course, are different, your selection rank can be different for each course you list in your course preferences.
You may need to have a minimum ATAR before you are eligible to receive any bonus points - check the information from each institution carefully to see if it has a minimum ATAR requirement.
These institutions apply bonus points automatically:
- Griffith University
- La Trobe University
- University of Newcastle
- University of Technology, Sydney
- University of Western Sydney
- University of Wollongong
These institutions consider students individually. Contact them for more information:
- Australian Maritime College
- Billy Blue College of Design
- International College of Management, Sydney
- University of Canberra
- University of New South Wales
- University of Sydney
- William Blue College of Hospitality Management
Some UAC institutions apply bonus points if you live in, or attend school in, a designated region. These are regional bonus points.
Interstate students can read interstate course comparisons to find out about available subject bonuses for each state.
