Outline

These Awards are provided to encourage academically gifted local Higher School Certificate (HSC) or equivalent students from NSW and ACT high schools to undertake undergraduate study at UNSW.

The Academic Achievement Award (AAA) comprises:

  • Three adjustment factor points (included in the maximum total points) for entry into an undergraduate degree program at UNSW, except for Medicine (BMed MD) and Co-op programs
  • Payment of $5,000 following confirmation of full-time enrolment at UNSW

This award can be deferred for up to 2 years, if the offer of Admission is formally deferred and the student does not undertake any other tertiary study in the meantime.

The AAA cannot be held in conjunction with a UNSW Scientia Scholarship.

Payment of the award is made only if students are enrolled in a full-time undergraduate degree program at UNSW, as at Census date in the year of award.

Eligibility

AAA offers will be made by UNSW to students that achieve the highest ATAR (not including bonus points) at NSW and ACT high schools, excluding TAFE, and accept an offer and enrol at UNSW in a full-time undergraduate degree program.

Eligible recipients will receive initial notification via their UNSW Guaranteed Entry page.

Selection

AAA's are automatically offered by UNSW based on Australian Year 12 results for students applying for admission via UAC commencing Term 1, 2019. UNSW must be at least one of the applicant's UAC preferences, as at ATAR release date, in order to be considered.

AAA offers will be made by UNSW to students that achieve the highest raw ATAR (not including adjustment factor points) at NSW and ACT high schools.

Multiple students from the same high school may be made an offer.
