Schools Recommendation Scheme


Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) Early Offer

The Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) helps Year 12 students who are UAC applicants to gain access to higher education. Eligible students can receive an early offer using selection criteria other than (or in addition to) the ATAR, including performance in Year 11 and school recommendations.

The scheme is available to current Year 12 students completing their Higher School Certificate (HSC) or International Baccalaureate (IB) in 2019.

SRS courses

The following courses are available for the SRS for Western Sydney University. Please note, courses such as Medicine, Physiotherapy, Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine have strict quotas so are not available for this scheme.
