HSC True Reward

Western Sydney University’s HSC True Reward early offer program.

Our unique program makes an early offer into a University degree based on corresponding HSC subject band outcomes, not your overall ATAR. The program offers you a place at Western before you receive your ATAR, on the basis of your HSC subject results.

Western is one of the only universities to offer a program with the chance to apply for an early offer based on your HSC results. At Western, we recognise that you are much more than your ATAR. True Reward focuses on the scores that reflect your strongest skills.

Hear the stories from students who applied for True Reward last year.
