Schools Recommendation Scheme

Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) Early Offer 2017

The Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) helps Year 12 students gain access to higher education by receiving an offer on factors other than the ATAR, for example, performance in Year 11, awards, achievements and school ratings.

The scheme is available to current Year 12 students completing their Higher School Certificate (HSC) or International Baccalaureate (IB) in 2016.

SRS courses 2017

The following courses are available for the SRS for Western Sydney University. If your preferred course is not on this list, you can wait until you get your ATAR and be part of our Guaranteed Entry Program. Please note, courses such as Medicine, Physiotherapy, Midwifery and Paramedicine have strict quotas so are not available for this scheme or any Guaranteed Entry Program the University offers.

  5. Agree to the declaration and authority.
  6. Submit your SRS application.
  7. Friday, 30 September 2016: SRS applications close - you cannot make changes to your application after this date. 

What happens next?

After you have submitted your application you can view your 'Application Summary' through SRS Check and Change (opens in a new window). You can edit or add Year 11 studies, add awards and achievements and upload  or replace supporting documentation up until midnight 30 September 2016.

Your application will be available to your school to provide assessment of your ability to perform at higher education. Western Sydney University will then assess your application taking into account your year 11 studies, awards, achievements and school ratings.


To receive an offer you will need to list one of the Western Sydney University courses as your first preference by midnight Monday, 5 December 2016.

If successful you will receive an unconditional offer through UAC on Friday, 9 December 2016.

If you would then like to be considered for another course you can change your preference to be considered for a later round, however, if you don't change your preference you won't be considered in subsequent rounds. If you do then receive another offer from Western Sydney University you will be able to choose the course you prefer from the offers you have been made.
