Keep an eye open on this one!

Undergraduate Alternate Admissions Pathways

At UNSW Engineering we strive for a better world, driven by our graduates who are passionate in creating solutions for humanity through their diverse perspectives.

FEAS is an alternative pathway for students who want to study at UNSW but don’t meet the Guaranteed Entry Rank (GE).You should apply for the Faculty of Engineering Admissions Scheme if you’re expecting an ATAR between 83.00 and 90.95 and want to study at UNSW. FEAS applies to most UNSW Engineering undergraduate programs, including our double degrees with a Guaranteed Entry Rank (GE) of 91. Students who are applying for the Bachelor of Food Science (Hons) program can submit a FEAS application with an ATAR of 80 and upwards.

Firefighting is a physically demanding occupation. Tasks include carrying heavy loads including personal protective equipment, handling temperature extremes, variable terrains and confined spaces, all of which impose unique physical and physiological demands upon firefighters.

The FireFit Training Guide is based on an eight to 12-week program, depending on each individual’s fitness level, and is available to help eligible candidates prepare for the Fire and Rescue NSW Physical Aptitude Test (PAT)*.

We have created a series of exercise focused videos called “Train Like a Firefighter” that will show you how each exercise relates to the physical demands required of firefighters.
