COVID Pathways

Entry schemes could allow you to apply with:

  • Your Year 11 & 12 results
  • A recommendation from your Principal
  • Volunteer work and community service (including school leadership)
  • Your ATAR, or
  • A combination of results

This is no ordinary year, and all Year 12’s will have been affected to some degree. Luckily, most universities are aware that things are different, and have come up with programs and entry schemes designed to ensure everyone who wants to go to uni in 2021 can find a place.

Some universities will allow you to apply using your Year 11 and Year 12 results, others will guarantee a place if you score above the set ATAR. Each university is different, and the application process can be complex, which is why we’ve collected all the information from each university into the one place.

We anticipate things will continue to change, so check back for the latest updates and new COVID programs as the year progresses. All the changes will be included in our Weekly Newsletters for schools and students.

State Based

Application Centres

You need to apply in the state where you want to go to university – NOT in the state where you live.

So if you live in Sydney but want to apply for courses in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, you’ll need to apply through UAC, QTAC and TISC.

The good news is that applying in more states can INCREASE your chances of getting a place, because you can nominate the maximum number of preferences in each state. Which is particularly important if you’re considering a competitive course, like medicine or law.
