Applications for undergraduate study from domestic students (Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents, Australian permanent humanitarian visa holders and New Zealand citizens) are processed by the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).
Visit the ‘Apply’ section of the UAC website and you can nominate up to five degrees in order of preference, with the first being your most desired degree and university. On-time applications for admission usually close at the end of September each year for Term 1 admission.
Late applications can be submitted, but a late fee will apply. For study starting in Term 1, the majority of offers are made in December and January. Visit the UAC website for key dates for admission outside of Term 1.
UNSW Built Environment recognises that your ATAR or equivalent may not reflect your potential in creative thinking and making. We are pleased to offer you the Alternative Admission Scheme to give you the opportunity to submit a portfolio of your work to support your ATAR.Your portfolio submission should be a selection of your best creations and should describe where your creative imagination and skills lie.
The Alternative Admission Scheme is optional. Applicants who do not submit an application under this scheme will be assessed on their ATAR (or equivalent) only. Following your submission, assessors will review your portfolio and cover letter and may invite you for an interview. For more information visit the Built Environment's Alternative Admission Scheme page.
