Supporting your students

At Western, we know the influence a great teacher can have on a student’s life in guiding their academic aspirations. That’s why we support Career Advisers with a range of resources to help them inspire their students to pursue higher education.

You'll find some helpful starting points below.

HSC True Reward

We know HSC can be a stressful time, and sometimes even the best, most prepared students suffer from test stress and exam pressure. That’s why we created our HSC True Reward program. This unique program can offer students at Western, based on your HSC subject results, before you receive your ATAR. After all, we know students are made up of more than just their ATAR score.

The Western Sydney University Advantage

As part of our commitment to creating opportunities for as many students as possible to study at university, we are offering your year 12 students the Western Sydney University Advantage, a program 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 including HSC True Reward and our bonus point schemes. 

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. Please refer to Regional Bonus Points for more information.

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 HSC Subject to find out what they could be eligible for. Please see Subject Bonus Points for more information.

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.

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. For further information about EAS, or to obtain a booklet and application form, please contact the Course Information Centre on 1300 897 669.

If you’re a Year 12 student completing your HSC or IB, and you’re applying through UAC, the Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) gives you a chance to receive an early offer based on your performance in Year 11 and your school’s recommendation.
