UC admissions priority groups
If you’re putting together your application for UC, you may notice there are different ways people from various backgrounds can seek help with admission. We’re dedicated to supporting all potential students no matter their background, though we actively encourage some priority groups to apply to UC.
You can receive a maximum of five adjustment points towards your selection rank if you belong to one or more of the following groups:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
- Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel and reservists
- Elite athlete students.
Priority group adjustment points are available for all UC courses, whether you’re applying through the University Admissions Centre (UAC) or directly to UC.
