Western Sydney Advantage

As part of Western Sydney University's commitment to creating opportunities for as many students as possible to study at university, we are offering your year 12 students the Western Sydney Advantage; a scheme that provides numerous ways to boost results, gain early entry into Western Sydney University degrees and transform the tertiary education learning experience.

The Western Sydney Advantage provides many admission advantages:

1: Early Offer Program

Western Sydney University's HSC True Reward Early Offer Program is the only program of its kind in NSW. True Reward provides students with an early offer for entry to a degree based on corresponding HSC subject band outcomes. Open to 2017 NSW HSC students, this unique initiative rewards students for their hard work. For more information or to apply visit the HSC True Reward Early Offer Program webpage.

2: Regional Bonus Points

All students living or studying in the Greater Western Sydney region, who qualify for an ATAR or IB Diploma, will automatically receive five Bonus Points when they apply to do a course at Western Sydney University, excluding the Doctor of Medicine (MD), and Bachelor of Music. Please refer to Regional Bonus Points for more information.

3: Subject Bonus Points

As a way of rewarding outstanding performance in a nominated range of HSC or IB subjects, students may be offered up to 10 Bonus Points for their achievements in those subjects. Students can search by Western Sydney University Course or by Subject to find out how many Subject Bonus Points may be available.

4: Elite Athlete and Performer Bonus Scheme

As an elite athlete-friendly university, Western Sydney University welcomes applications for the Elite Athletes or Performers Scheme. Students who have been disadvantaged by performance at a state or national level are given the opportunity to gain further bonus points. Visit the Elite Athlete and Performer Bonus Scheme webpage to find out more.

5: Educational Access Scheme (EAS)

Students whose educational performance has been seriously affected by forces beyond their control during year 11 and/or year 12, or equivalent, are able to apply for EAS Bonus Points.
