     How to apply
                     Here’s what you need to know
                     about applying to study at UTS.

                     Getting in
                     When it comes to getting in to UTS, how we assess your
                     application depends on the type of applicant you are:
                     – If you’re a recent school leaver, we’ll look at your selection
                       rank (a combination of your ATAR/IB score plus any adjustment
                       points you receive.
                     – If you’re a non-recent school leaver, we’ll also look at your
                       selection rank, which may come from your ATAR/IB score
                       or post-school study, plus any relevant work experience or
                       additional selection criteria required for your course.
                     – If you’re an Indigenous student, you can apply to UTS
                       via the standard UAC process, or you can apply direct to
                       the UTS Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and
                       Research. The Jumbunna team will assess your application
                       and recommend either direct entry into a degree or a pathway
                       program that’s best suited to your experience.

                     Please note: This guide is not intended for international students.
                     Please visit uts.edu.au/international for more information on how
                     to apply.

                      NO PRE-REQUISITES
                      There are no pre-requisites for UTS courses, which means you
                      can apply for anything that takes your fancy. However, some
                      courses have an assumed knowledge component, so you’ll
                      need to brush up on the expected skills and expertise if you
                      want to do well in your studies. Need a bit of help? UTS offers
                      bridging courses in key areas to help you get the knowledge
                      you need.
