UTS Year 12 Subject Scheme

The Year 12 subject scheme awards adjustment points towards your selection rank, based on your performance in select high school subjects that are relevant to your preferred UTS course. We’ve put together this scheme because we believe that your ability to undertake a course is better measured by looking at your subject marks in addition to your ATAR.  You’re eligible to receive adjustment points as long as you are a recent school leaver who has:
applied for a UTS course that awards adjustment points; a minimum ATAR of 69 (or interstate equivalent);
completed the relevant HSC subjects.

UTS Elite Athlete or Performers Scheme

Are you an elite athlete or performer who represented your school or state at a national level competition/event?

Has your study been impacted because of this? If you answered yes to both of these questions, you may be eligible for a five-point adjustment to your Selection Rank .

Things you really need to consider before deciding to study dietetics

Difference between a nutritionist & a dietitian – You need to be aware that there is a distinct difference between a nutritionist and a dietitian. It is possibly to do a 2 week correspondence course, or to have absolutely no qualifications at all and call yourself a “nutritionist”.

Please take the time to watch this video by 3 time national president of the Dietitians Association Australia Sandra Capra to ensure that you are on the right path to becoming a dietitian if that is your intention:
