E12 Courses

We offer 68 courses that you can gain entry to through E12. Along with the course descriptions, we also outline:

  • course requirements (the HSC or IB subjects you need to have completed)
  • assumed knowledge (knowledge gained from subjects you have undertaken in your HSC or IB)
  • selection criteria (additional requirements, such as attending an interview, audition, or submitting a portfolio)

Please refer to UAC's Subject Comparison Table to find each IB Diploma subject and the equivalent subject in the NSW HSC.


You can find out more about the courses on offer below:

To be eligible for E12, you need to meet certain eligibility criteria, and it’s important to know that you can’t combine E12 with any other University of Sydney special entry schemes. This means the E12 ATAR cut-off for your course (see the table below) can’t be modified by any other ATAR concession from another scheme.
