Australian Tertiary Admission Rank

This table shows the lowest Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) to receive an offer of enrolment in SSESW's 2014–2017 intakes of various programs. In 2018 the University adopted a system of guaranteed ATAR admission for its BEd(Early Childhood) and BSW programs, as well as for the ATAR component for admission into other undergraduate programs. "Guaranteed ATAR" admission means that applicants who achieve the required ATAR, International Baccalaureate (IB) – or equivalent score – in their Year 12 studies will be offered a place. Applicants for BEd programs other than Early Childhood were also required to meet other selection criteria, as detailed in Sydney Courses. In addition to these, applicants for BEd(Primary) and BEd(HPE) must have achieved a minimum of three Band 5s in the NSW HSC (or equivalent Year 12 qualification) – one of which must be English [not English as a Second Language (ESL)].
