Uni of Newcastle Early Offer Program

We believe that a student’s ATAR doesn’t define who they are – it is their unique passions, abilities and ambitions that matter. Our Year 12 Subject Spotlight Program rewards students with an early offer for their hard work and strong results in individual subjects related to their degree. So, they can take some of the stress out of their final school exams, knowing their ATAR isn’t all that matters. There is no separate application for the program – simply apply through UAC to qualify.

For more information on subjects aligned to specific degrees, visit our   website. From there, students can choose their preferred degree from the drop-down menu to what subject marks they’ll need to receive an early offer.
