Review admission schemes

Undergraduate

Admission schemes can boost your selection rank and improve your chances of getting into your preferred program.

You may be eligible for our admission schemes based on: 

  • your background and personal circumstances
  • where you live
  • the subjects you studied at school.

Many of our admission schemes use 'adjustments' to boost your selection rank.

If you're eligible for adjustments, your entry score will be converted to a selection rank and any adjustments will be added onto this rank. Each adjustment is equivalent to 1 rank.

You can receive a maximum of 5 adjustments across all schemes.
