Early Admission

Students apply online, directly to UOW. Early admission – register for updates

UOW has a new, user-friendly application portal where personal details are pre-populated based on student number and Year 11 results are automatically made available to UOW for assessment (via NESA). This prevents the need for students, schools, and UOW to manually verify high school results.

UOW takes a holistic view of each individual, taking into account a range of factors that include;

  • Year 11 subject performance;
  • Application responses to UOW’s identified indicator of success: academic readiness, motivation & passion, planning & persistence, communication & collaboration;
  • Whether a student has experienced disadvantage that impacted their performance in Year 11, aligned in principle to UAC’s Educational Access Scheme (EAS);
  • Whether students go to school in UOW’s catchment area or in regional NSW;
  • Performance at required interview or participation in compulsory engagement activity/s.

UOW Course Finder

UOW offers over 400 undergraduate (bachelor) and postgraduate coursework and research degrees. Search below.
