Alternative entry or pathways

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.
