HSC True Reward Early Offer Program

Applications are now open to receive an early offer to begin in 2022.

Our HSC True Reward early offer program will give school leavers much needed peace of mind, providing students an early offer into most university programs based on their Year 11* 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 reliable indicator of student success.

The HSC True Reward program is open to both domestic and international NSW HSC students. For information about how to apply as an international student, please visit our International HSC Students page.

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