How to apply

SRS applications for 2018 admissions will open in early August 2017.

The information on these pages is for 2017 admissions: use it only as a guide to the SRS process.

After you've applied to UAC for undergraduate admission, you can apply for SRS using your UAC application number and UAC PIN. You can only submit one application. There is no separate charge to apply for SRS.

We will help you with your application.

To process your application, we'll need information about your Year 11 studies. Some institutions will also consider your personal awards and achievements.

Your Year 11 studies

Your Year 11 studies and results are used by a number of universities as one of the assessment criteria for making SRS offers.

If you undertook your Year 11 studies in the NSW school system, you don’t have to provide results of your Year 11 studies with your SRS application. UAC will obtain your Year 11 Record of School Achievement (RoSA) results directly from the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards.

If you undertook your Year 11 studies at a school or college in any other state or territory, or overseas, you will need to enter details of your Year 11 studies and upload a PDF of your Year 11 school report.

Your personal awards and achievements

The following institutions will consider your personal awards and/or achievements as one of the assessment criteria for making SRS offers:

  • Australian National University
  • Charles Sturt University
  • National Art School
  • SAE Creative Media Institute
  • University of New England
  • Western Sydney University.

You may enter details of up to three of your best awards or achievements undertaken during Years 11 or 12. This means you can enter any combination of awards and achievements, as long as the combined total is three or less.

However, it is not necessary to enter any awards or achievements in order to apply for SRS as many universities do not take them into consideration when making SRS offers.

You can upload PDF evidence of your awards and achievements during the application or via SRS Check & Change after you have applied.

The evidence of your awards and achievements must be easy to read and provided by an independent source. Documents from friends, family members or from sources that can’t be checked will not be assessed.

Additionally, you will have the option to provide a link to an external website, such as a video or photo hosting site, to provide supporting evidence for any achievement/s you add to your application.
