Step 3

FEAS application

Video submission.

The Guaranteed Entry selection rank (ATAR + Bonus Points) for admission to most UNSW Engineering programs in 2018 is 92.00.

For those with a selection rank below 92.00, the Faculty recognises that there are a number of factors which signal the potential of these students to succeed in engineering programs. These factors include the ATAR (or equivalent), ability in mathematics and knowledge of physical science, design and problem solving, and attitude and motivation toward engineering studies.

If you anticipate achieving a selection rank (ATAR + bonus points) between 82.00 and 91.95, then to ensure you have an opportunity for admission you will need to submit an application under the Faculty of Engineering Admission Scheme (FEAS). As part of this process you will answer some short written questions and upload a short video to demonstrate how you are suited to engineering studies.

Note that previously, the FEAS application (Step 3) included an interview and was optional, but recommended. For the 2018 intake, the FEAS application is required. There are no interviews.
