You can apply to study at the University of Sydney for a starting date in either March or July.
Semester One begins in March, all degree courses are available for this intake.
Semester Two begins in July, only few courses offer limited places for the mid-year intake.
To apply for all University of Sydney undergraduate degrees you need to submit your application online through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC). UAC collects applications and assesses them on behalf of universities in NSW and ACT.
You can choose up to nine courses in order of preference. Once you have entered your details, uploaded all requested documents and UAC has received your results (for example Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), Overall Position (OP), International Baccalaureate (IB) or university or TAFE results), UAC will provide these information to the University, which then makes the decision on whether or not to offer you a place.
For more information on the application procedure, visit the UAC website or get a copy of the UAC Guide, which is distributed through newsagents in NSW and ACT from early August onwards. Copies of the UAC Guide are distributed to NSW and ACT Year 12 students through their school.
For a small number of undergraduate courses, you need to apply directly to the University. These courses are not listed in the UAC Guide, including graduate dental and medical programs, Bachelor of Nursing (post-registration) and undergraduate diploma courses.

On-time UAC applications closed on 30 September 2014, you can still apply after this date but late applications incur an additional fee. Final closing date is Friday 20 February 2015.
