Our HSC True Reward early offer program will give school leavers much needed peace of mind, providing students with an early offer into most university degrees based on their Year 11* or Year 12 results.
HSC True Reward was first launched in 2017, providing students with an early offer into Western based on HSC results, instead of a scaled ATAR, following analysis showing subject performance is a reliable indicator of student success.
The HSC True Reward program is open to both domestic and international NSW HSC students. For information about applying as an international NSW HSC student, please visit our International HSC Students page.
If you are a year 12 HSC student and have selected eligible course preferences, you will automatically be considered for a HSC True Reward early offer.
Key dates and application information for students undertaking the HSC in 2024 and seeking admission through HSC True Reward to commence study in 2025 will be available shortly. Register your interest to keep updated.
*Those that apply using their Year 11 results will need to successfully complete the HSC.
