Domestic Students (Undergraduate)
How to apply for an Undergraduate degree at UNSW Art & Design
Whether you're a recent school leaver seeking a career in the art and design industry or a mature age student looking for a new career path or area of interest, UNSW Art & Design welcomes you to apply for admission to one of our internationally recognised Undergraduate degrees.
High School Students
UNSW Australia Art & Design accepts NSW HSC and Interstate Year 12 results, as well as the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB), A Levels, New Zealand NCEA Level 3, and other selected secondary qualifications for admission.
Bonus ATAR points are also awarded if you've achieved good results in HSC subjects relevant to the program you're applying for.
Non-High School Students
Non-High School students are welcome to apply for a UNSW Art & Design Undergraduate degree. Your application will be assessed on your previous educational qualifications, plus the program you wish to study.
Already completed other tertiary qualifications?
If you have completed a Certificate IV, Associate Diploma, Diploma or Advanced Diploma at a TAFE or Private College, your application will be considered for admission. You may also apply if you have successfully completed the equivalent of one year full-time study at either an Australian or International University. Please note: Trade Certificates are not considered.
UNSW Art & Design offers additional selection criteria for domestic applicants who anticipate an ATAR (or equivalent) within 10 points of the expected cut-off; these applicants are invited to submit a personal statement, portfolio or essay and contact details for two referees, which will be considered along with their academic results.
How do I apply?
All domestic applicants (Australian and New Zealand citizens or permanent residents), and International students who are completing an Australian Year 12 or IB qualification, need to apply via the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) Apply-by-Web facility.
