Apply to University

Learn how to apply for university
There’s a lot to take in, but we’ve made it easy for you to understand what you need to do and when you need to do it by.
You’ll find all the information you need to submit your application, maximise your preferences, and claim any adjustment factors you are eligible for.
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.
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.

How to apply
Register with your YEAR 12 STUDENT NUMBER and UAC PIN on the UAC website.
NSW & ACT students – Your UAC PIN will be emailed to the address you registered with NESA.
Interstate students – Your UAC PIN is the first four digits of your date of birth (so if your birthday is 3 October, your PIN is 0310).
List up to FIVE preferences – to maximise your chances of getting an offer list all five preferences.
Remember – you can change these later.
Accept the applicant declaration, submit your application and pay the processing fee.
Some of the private tertiary education providers manage their own application and offer process. Each institution has it own application dates, fees and procedures, so if you want to apply for a course through one of those institutions you’ll need to check with them directly.
