Faculty of Engineering Admissions Scheme (FEAS)

We know that things don’t always go to plan, so if you are expecting an ATAR between 83.00 and 92.95 and want to study at UNSW, apply for the Faculty of Engineering Admissions Scheme (FEAS). This 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

Upload a short video demonstrating how and why you are suited to engineering studies.

We 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.

Some questions to consider when creating your video:

  • Why are you keen to study engineering?
  • How did you become interested in engineering?
  • Why do you think you’ll be a good engineer?
