University Information

Applying for University Courses

There are two main ways to apply for university courses: directly to each university under one of their early admission schemes and/or through the Universities Admission Centre (UAC). Below is a newsletter that details important information on how and when to apply through UAC. Applications are now open but don't close until 16 September. Information for some courses will not be available until early August, so if you make your application earlier than that it would be wise to go back onto the UAC website and check over your course selection again. You can change your preferences free of charge if you change your mind up until the closong date for each round of offers.

Applications are open

UAC applications for study at uni in 2025 are now open for domestic students. International students can apply from 17 April.

Details of hundreds of semester 1, 2025 courses offered by UAC’s participating institutions are available on our website. More will be added over the next few months. Students who apply now should log back in to their application in around August to take another look at the courses being offered and review their course preferences.

Starting an application: essential info 

This year, students need the following details to start their UAC application:

Personal email address: For security reasons, when students start their application they will need to register with a personal email address and a password. They'll then be sent an email to validate their details. Once they've done that, they will use their email address and password to log in to their application.

Year 12 student number and UAC PIN: We emailed UAC PINs to NSW and ACT students yesterday using the email addresses NESA and ACT BSSS have on file. If any students didn't receive this email, please ask them to call UAC. Also remind them to register a personal email address in their NESA Students Online account.

Students need to enter their Year 12 student number and UAC PIN early in the application. These details identify them as a 2024 Year 12 student, which means they'll be able to apply for an early offer through the Schools Recommendation Scheme. 

Unique Student Identifier (USI): At the request of institutions, this is now a mandatory field for domestic applicants who are Australian citizens. Students can quickly and easily create their USI or check if they already have one.

How to apply for uni through UAC


SRS now part of undergraduate application 

This year, the Schools Recommendation Scheme application is integrated into the undergraduate application; it is no longer a standalone application. 

Once students have submitted their undergraduate application a link to the SRS application will appear. It will only take them a minute or so to complete.

As only current Year 12 students can apply for SRS, it's important that they enter their Year 12 student number and UAC PIN in the undergraduate application. If they don't, they won't have access to the SRS application.
