Get bonus Uni points with SYO

If you’re already enrolled in Sydney Youth Orchestra (SYO) programs, or you’re thinking about doing it, your participation could earn you bonus points towards a University application.

Find out if you’re eligible for the additional points at each of these institutions, then you’ll have to apply:

  • Macquarie Uni’s Elite Athletes and Artistic Performers (EAAP) Scheme could provide you with 4 adjustment points towards your application. Applications open on 17 August 2019 and close on 31 October 2019. You can also apply between 1 – 30 November but you’ll have to pay a late fee of $150 to be considered.
  • UNSW’s Elite Athletes, Performers and Leaders (EAPL) program awards up to 5 adjustment factors (bonus points) to applicants who’ve excelled in a number of areas including music, at an elite level. 2020 applications are open now and close on 30 November 2019.
  • UTS’ Elite Athletes and Performers Special Admissions Scheme offer students who’ve had their studies disrupted in high school (due to performing at state / national level events and competitions), a chance to get up to 5 adjustment points on their Selection Ranking (SR). Applications close on 30 November 2019.
  • WSU Elite Athletes or Performers Scheme could entitle you to 5 bonus points to boost your Selection Ranking. Applications in 2018 closed on the 30 November, so it could be around the same time this year, but you’ll need to check with WSU.


Don’t forget to double check when the application open and closing dates are, as well as the supporting documentation you’ll need to provide.

It’s well worth applying as most of these programs offer other benefits too, they could help see you through your degree more easily.
