HSC True Reward Early Offer Program

We know how difficult this year has been for HSC students, with disruptions to their studies due to COVID-19.

Our HSC True Reward early offer program will give school leavers much-needed peace of mind, offering students entry into university based on their Year 11* results or Year 12 results. HSC True Reward was first launched in 2017, providing students an early offer into Western based on HSC results, instead of a scaled ATAR, following analysis showing subject performance is a robust key performance indicator of student success. This year, we’re introducing offers based on Year 11 results to ensure COVID-19 doesn’t derail students hard work in preparing for their HSC.

Another exciting new innovation to the True Reward program this year, is the inclusion of the University’s Alpha platform – a ground breaking digital experience that provides tailor-made content for students based on personal and professional development needs and goals. Alpha’s Edge Playlist is a playlist of learning activities that will assist students with career decision making and prepare them for university.

Applications are now open.

*Those that apply using their Year 11 results will need to successfully complete the HSC.
