Other important information

Entry requirements depends on the course stream you choose. These streams are:

  • Extended (4 semesters – 16 months)
  • Standard (3 semesters – 12 months)
  • ​Accelerated (2 semesters – 8 months)

Entry to a UTS College diploma is based on your HSC subject average of English plus your best 3 board developed courses:

  • 75% for Accelerated
  • 67% for Standard
  • 63% for Extended

Entry to UTS College - subject average example:

Sam received the following marks for their HSC board-developed courses:
    English Standard (65%)
    Earth and Environmental Science (71%)
    Mathematics Standard 2 (73%)
    Music 1 (63%)
    Japanese Beginners (68%)
Based on this ATARNotes calculator, Sam is predicted to receive an ATAR of 51.10.
Sam's UTS College subject average is calculated as English Standard (65%), plus their best 3 board-developed courses of Earth and Environmental Science (71%), Mathematics Standard 2 (73%) and Japanese Beginners (68%). Average
(65+71+73+68) / 4 = 69.25%.
While Sam's ATAR is 51.10, their UTS College subject average is 69.25%. Sam wants to study a Diploma of Science and can study a Standard 12-month diploma (min. 67% average).

Yes. You can still apply to UTS College while you wait for your ATAR results. You can submit your current academic results and transcripts, and if these meet UTS College's entry requirements, we will issue you a 'conditional offer'.
Conditional offers are issued when additional information or documents are needed to finalise assessment (e.g. if a student is waiting for their ATAR results but would like to apply early to UTS College to save their place). Conditional offers cannot be accepted. You need to be issued a Full offer in order to accept.
If you have received a Conditional offer, this means you need to supply further documentation to meet the eligibility criteria.

For example, once you have received your final academic transcipt/results (such as ATAR), you can log back into our Student Portal (where you originally applied to UTS College) and submit documents to support your application and be considerered for a Full offer. Be sure to log in to your existing account (instead of registering as a new user) so we can process your Conditional offer quickly.
