UAC Mid-Year Domestic undergraduate admission 2013
The University will be offering a small number of domestic undergraduate student places for Semester 2, 2013 through UAC's Mid-Year undergraduate admissions process. Applications are now open through the undergraduate section at UAC. The UAC 2013 Mid-Year Admissions Supplement (to the 2013 UAC Guide) may be dowloaded (as a pdf document) and is also available in printed form from the Student Centre counter.
Applications close on Friday 7 June.
The information on this page should be read in conjunction with the University of Sydney section in the Supplement.
International students who have applied for Semester 2, 2013 admission through UAC will be considered in UAC's International Mid-Year process. Other International students should contact the International Student Office.

You cannot apply for courses that do not appear on the courses list.
There are two factors that prevent the University offering more courses for mid-year admission. Professional courses (eg, Pharmacy, Vet Science, etc) are taught on a yearly basis that does not allow for mid-year entry. Other courses that are structured to cater for mid-year entry have been over-subscribed by new enrolments from January 2013.
The next opportunity to apply for all University of Sydney undergraduate courses is August 2013, when UAC applications for 2014 admissions commence.
All applicants for UAC Mid-Year admission are ranked in a standard manner equivalent to the January UAC admission session. Applicants should be aware that all tertiary study attempts in 2013 (Semester 1), regardless of the results gained, are ignored in the ranking process, because the UAC Mid-Year offers are made prior to the general release of Semester 1 results.
As a result, applicants will be assessed and ranked on their 'qualifications' gained prior to 2013. For most applicants this will be the NSW ATAR (or equivalent). In addition, some applicants will also be considered on the basis of tertiary study attempts of at least one full-time year (completed prior to 2013).
In a similar way to the January UAC intake, applicants are selected in descending rank order until the required number of offers are generated.
Entry standards for Mid-Year admission may vary from those in January. The number of applicants, their qualification ranks and the number of places available are the factors that determine the entry standard for each course. In previous years, the entry standards (ATAR cut-offs) for some courses have been higher than those reported in January, and in some instances, significantly higher. For most courses, the January entry standard will apply to the Mid-Year session.
Applicants should be aware that entry standards will not be lower than those set in January 2013.
Applicants may seek further information and advice from the Admissions Office prior to completing their UAC Mid-Year application. The UAC application processing fee is non-refundable.
