Everyone's pathway to uni is different and no matter what your background there are several options available to you at the University of Newcastle. We offer a number of programs that you could study in 2014, which will enable you to apply for university in the future:
Are you eligible for credit? Did you know that credit for previous studies may reduce your study load?
If you have previously studied at TAFE, the University of Newcastle, or another university or institute in Australia or overseas then applying for credit now could reduce your study time – saving you time and money.
Apply online soon to ensure you know which courses to enrol in for your degree program next year.
Find out more about some of the approved credit transfer arrangements and how to apply.
If you're sitting the HSC and receiving an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) this year, you may be awarded up to eight bonus points when you apply to study with us as part of our Regional and Rural and HSC bonus point schemes. These points might get you into a degree program that you really want. Check out what you might be eligible for.
It's important to carefully consider the ordering of your preferences - make sure you list your preferences in order of what you really want to do. Put the course you would most like to do first. You will be offered a place in the first course on your list that you are eligible for.
Use your final preferences to select degree programs that may be a stepping stone into the degree program you really want, or to give you a second career choice.
Once you have secured a place in a degree program, you can always apply to transfer into another degree program. You can also use your uni grades to get into a degree program with a high cut-off. It's best to speak to our staff about what your best options are if this is your contingency plan to get into your first preference.
Secure your place with an early offer from the University of Newcastle.
If you list a participating University of Newcastle degree as a first preference, and achieve an ATAR of 90 or above, you could receive an early offer. *
Then you can relax knowing you'll be one of the first to secure a place at a world-class university in 2014.
* Early offers are only applicable for Main Round applicants.
To help you enrol in your degree program and introduce you to university life, you will be invited to attend Program Information and Enrolment Sessions (PIES). It is important that you attend this session as staff will be on hand to help you enrol into the right courses for your degree program.
If you receive an offer in the Main Round, you will also receive a letter advising you to attend a session for the degree program you have been offered. The letter will tell you the session date, time and venue. If you receive an offer in either the Late or Final Round, and you accept that offer, you will need to contact the University to check which session you will need to attend.
You've worked hard to achieve outstanding results so we would like to take the guesswork out of uni entry by guaranteeing your place in most of our undergraduate degrees.
If you receive an ATAR of 90 or above you can relax knowing that you've secured your place at a world-class university for 2014.
