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).

2. Full offer: this is issued when all conditions have been met. Full offers can be acecpted.

If you have received a Conditional offer, this means you need to supply further documentation to meet the eligibility criteria.

Be sure to log in to your existing account (instead of registering as a new user) so we can process your Conditional offer quickly.
