- Other than your regular schoolwork, which of your activities or achievements have been most meaningful to you? These could be sports, cultural, community or school leadership activities. Describe why it is important to you.
- Describe an academic achievement you are most proud of.
- Tell us why you want to/are motivated to study the course you have chosen (include any experience you may have had that relates to this course).
In the case of UNSW's Gateway Admission Pathway, applicants are required to submit a personal statement that responds to the following questions:
- Why are you interested in the course you are applying for? Tell us how this degree relates to your passions and goals.
- What are your learning strengths? How have you applied them to overcome challenges in school or other aspects of your life?
- Thinking about your future self at university. What do you identify as the key challenges for you and how do you plan to manage these?
