UOW Batemans Bay offers a variety of flexible pathways into our degree programs. If you want to get a university qualification, we will help you find a way.
Year 12/Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR)
The most common entry into one of our degrees is via the ATAR usually gained by completing Year 12/HSC. You can apply using your results regardless of where or when you completed school. We can translate your marks into a ATAR as part of the application process . You can search for ATAR cutoffs for degrees at UOW Batemans Bay in the UOW Course Finder. Use these cutoffs as a guide only. If you are a current year 12 student and you place UOW Batemans Bay on your UAC preference list, we will assess your results individually. If you completed year 12 prior to 2012, contact us to arrange assessment of your results.
Current year 12 students completing their HSC in local schools are eligible for regional bonus points as well additional admission points based on performance in relevant HSC subjects. These points will be automatically applied for admission to our courses. Read more...

More information about this course can be found on the TAFE Illawarra website or by phoning Moruya TAFE on 1300 766 123.
This program gives Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders access to our courses through an achievement test and an interview. The test examines literacy, numeracy and learning comprehension skills.

Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT)
You can gain entry to UOW via the two hour multiple choice STAT. The STAT is designed to assess a range of skills and knowledge you will need for tertiary study. It is coordinated by the Universities Admission Centre (UAC) and held several times a year.
Completed or partially-completed tertiary studies
If you have gained admission to another university and/or partially completed a university degree, you may use this as entry into our degree courses. You need an appropriate record of achievement from an approved university. You may also be eligible for some advanced standing from subjects completed. Documents must be accompanied by an official English translation if they were produced in another language.
