Schools Recommendation Schemes (SRS) are one way institutions make early offers of undergraduate admission to Year 12 students, using criteria other than (or in addition to) the ATAR.

Who can apply?

To apply for SRS you must be a Year 12 applicant who is attempting:

  • an International Baccalaureate in Australia in 2018.

You must also be:

  • a UAC applicant for undergraduate admission in 2018–19 and
  • an Australian or New Zealand citizen, or
  • a permanent resident of Australia or holder of an Australian permanent resident humanitarian visa.

Institution criteria

Participating institutions may take one or more of the following criteria into account when considering applicants for SRS offers:

  • your school’s rating of your abilities in areas of study
  • your Year 11 studies
  • your school’s rating of your aptitudes.

You may also need to meet other requirements set by an institution, such as a minimum ATAR. Some institutions require you to upload institution-specific documents.
