Avondale's Early Admission program can earn you an offer to your chosen undergraduate degree before you get your ATAR.

Applying for Early Admission

To be eligible for Early Admission in 2022, you must be:

| In Year 12 in 2021; and
| Eligible to be awarded the HSC, International Baccalaureate, or an interstate equivalent at an Australian high school; and
| Eligible for an ATAR; and
| Able to demonstrate that you achieved an average percentage mark of no less than 70% (or a B-Grade average) across all subjects in Year 11.

Early Admission is not open to mature age students, non-school leavers, or international students.


To apply for Early Admission:

| Complete an Early Admission Application Form
| Prepare a maximum one-page resume, including: a personal statement about what matters to you; your key skills; and your hobbies and interests. If applicable, include in your resume details of your awards /recognition; co-curricular/extracurricular activities; and/or employment/volunteer work.
| Obtain evidence of your Year 11 final year results (see note).

Note: Evidence includes a school report and/or a letter from your school (on official school letterhead and emailed to Avondale by a school official). Results are required for every subject as either a percentage mark or grade. Results submitted as a rank will not be accepted.

What Happens Next?

Your application will be assessed by our Student Administration Services team and if successful, you will be invited to attend an interview either at our Lake Macquarie campus or via Zoom. Keep an eye on your email - everything you need will be sent there!

If your application for Early Admission is unsuccessful, you still have the opportunity to gain admission to your chosen degree by obtaining the minimum entry score, or higher, in accordance with the published scores for admission to the course for which you applied. If you do not satisfy the minimum requirements for direct entry into your course of your choice, you may be considered for entry through one of Avondale's admission pathways.
