The Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) is one way institutions make early offers of undergraduate admission to Year 12 students. They do this by using criteria other than (or in addition to) the ATAR.

Information about applying this year, including application and offer dates, is being updated progressively, so check back at this link regularly.

SRS now part of undergraduate application

The degrees available under the admissions scheme are: 

·         Bachelor of Music

·         Bachelor of Music (Composition)

·         Bachelor of Music (Performance)

If you are a HSC student in NSW, you must do the following:

·         Apply to UAC by the relevant August Round 1 or October Round 1 deadline.

·         List your chosen music degree as your first preference.

·         Meet the audition/portfolio and interview requirements in the July or September rounds of auditions.

You are encouraged to apply in the July round of auditions (UAC August Round 1) where you will be able to audition live and have a chance to secure an early offer before submitting HSC work or undertaking exams. 

For most NSW Year 12 HSC students, no separate application is required, and your Year 11 and 12 results and predicted ATAR will be obtained automatically through UAC by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
