UNSW FEAS Scheme for Engineering – Keep an eye open on this one

If you are expecting an ATAR between 83.00 and 92.95 and want to study at UNSW, you are encouraged  to apply for the Faculty of Engineering Admissions Scheme (FEAS). FEAS is an alternative pathway for students who want to study at UNSW but don’t meet the Guaranteed Entry Rank (GE) of 93.00. FEAS applies to most UNSW Engineering undergraduate programs, including the double degrees with a GE of 93.

UNSW will evaluate your ability in mathematics, physics and other sciences, design and problem solving, as well as attitude and motivation towards engineering studies.

Just remember, an application for the Faculty of Engineering Admission Scheme is not an application to Engineering at UNSW. You will still need to complete a UAC application by the due date. If you need more information on applying for admission to UNSW, visit the Universities Admissions Centre website.
