What is the Alternative Admission Scheme?
UNSW Built Environment recognises that your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) or equivalent may not reflect your potential in creative thinking and making. We are pleased to offer you the alternative admission scheme to give you the opportunity to submit a portfolio of your work to support your ATAR.
Your portfolio submission should be a selection of your best own creations and should describe where your creative imagination and skills lie.
The alternative admission scheme is optional. Applicants who do not submit an application under this scheme will be assessed on their ATAR (or equivalent). Following your submission, assessors will review your portfolio and cover letter and may invite you for an interview.
How do I submit my portfolio?
You must have your chosen UNSW BE degree as a UAC preference to be eligible.
Once you have lodged a UAC application for your preferred Built Environment degree, and wish to apply under the alternative admission scheme, simply click here to submit your portfolio or view the specific requirements for your degree below.
Please click on your degree of interest to view the portfolio submission requirements:
- Bachelor of Architectural Studies
- Bachelor of Computational Design
- Bachelor of Industrial Design
- Bachelor of Interior Architecture
- Bachelor of Landscape Architecture
To find out more information on how to put a good portfolio together - view the information talk given by Bruce Watson, Director of Interior Architecture.
Regardless of which degree you wish to submit a portfolio for, we strongly encourage you to:
- have someone check your work for spelling and grammar
- submit your best work
- submissions will only be accepted through this website
- your portfolio should be crafted in a clever and enticing manner. We embrace risk and originality of thinking and making.
The interview will be a short conversation with you and UNSW staff. You should demonstrate your research, understanding and interest in this field of study. The interview is your chance to convey your strengths for study in your chosen discipline.
