GUARANTEED ALTERNATIVE ENTRY CONNECT: UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE CERTIFICATE Ok, so it didn’t go to plan. You didn’t quite get there, not enough marks to get into uni. The game’s not over, your chance is still alive, you just have to kick into plan B. University Entrance Certificate

The University Entrance Certificate (UEC) is a preparation course designed to give you the fundamental skills required for university level study and to maximise your chance of success. The course is designed for students who have not met the direct entry requirements for a UOW undergraduate bachelor’s degree. It’s also suited to students who did not receive an ATAR from their secondary schooling. After successful completion of the course you are guaranteed entry into the first year of a range of UOW undergraduate degrees. There are no pathways to Double Degrees, four year professional degrees, Bachelor of Law or Bachelor of Economics & Finance.

Study Length

You will attend up to 22 hours of lectures and tutorials a week. In addition to the tutorials, we recommend up to 16 hours of self-directed study time a week.

Entry Requirements •

Your ATAR is up to 20 points below the direct entry requirement for your chosen UOW bachelor degree. If your ATAR is more than 20 points below the direct entry requirements, your individual HSC subject results will be reviewed. If you do not have an ATAR, that’s OK. We will assess you on a case by case basis.

Available places in popular courses at UOW College are limited. When you receive your offer for the UEC, you also receive an offer for your chosen UOW degree. Given this, you will need to choose your university degree prior to starting the UEC program.


There are three intakes for UEC at Wollongong: • Autumn session (February) • Spring Session (June) • Summer (October)

Study Streams

When studying the UEC, you will study a stream of subjects that are relevant to your chosen university degree. When you enrol in the program, you will be allocated into a stream. For further detail about the subjects you study visit
