Alternate Pathways

At UNSW Engineering, we understand the path to undergraduate or postgraduate study may not always go to plan. To help you expand your study options, we offer numerous admission pathways that consider more than just your grades. We’re looking for students who demonstrate their suitability and readiness for the challenges in their chosen area of study – those who have the potential to become excellent Engineers.

Undergraduate Alternate Admissions Pathways

Our Faculty of Engineering Admissions Scheme (FEAS) is an alternate pathway for high school graduates who don’t meet the Guaranteed Entry Rank (GE) of 91.00. If your ATAR is within 10 points of the GE, we’ll evaluate your ability in math, physics and other sciences as well as attitude and motivation.
