Year 12 Subject Spotlight Changes
The University of Newcastle recently completed a detailed review of data related to admissions, success and re
tention of students who have joined University of Newcastle through the Year 12 Subject Spotlight Scheme pathway over the last three years.
Based on the analysis, we are introducing some revisions for 2022 admissions to ensure incoming students are offered an admission pathway which provides the greatest opportunity for success.
To be eligible for admission through the Subject Spotlight Scheme, applicants will now need to achieve:
- a Band 4* in English or English Advanced
- appropriate marks in any one other approved HSC subject linked to the degree that they are applying for.
The inclusion of English as a common requirement has been made to ensure that we are selecting applicants who are suitably prepared to succeed in undergraduate studies, and also to promote the importance of literacy across all tertiary disciplines.
* Applicants for Combined Laws programs must achieve a Band 6 in English or English Advanced to be eligible.
Please note that no combined programs, with the exception of Combined Laws, will be included in the pathway for 2022 admissions.
You can view the full list of degrees and associated HSC subjects here.

There is still time for your Year 12 students to submit an application for our Early Offer Program, which provides Year 12 students with the opportunity to secure a place at university before they even sit for their final HSC exams. This reduces the pressure on them during this often stressful time, leaving them free to focus on doing their best in their exams.

Update on course developments for 2022 coming soon
We’re always looking for new ways to improve our portfolio and give students greater choice, flexibility and support.
So, when students study with us, they can study online, in person or both, and they can choose from an increased number of majors and minors.
Course changes in 2022 (subject to Academic Board approvals):
- Bachelor of Arts will offer increased choice with a selection of 50 flexible majors (Melbourne Campus) available, and an entirely online version supported by full access to on-campus support services and work integrated learning opportunities in Melbourne and our regional campuses.
- Bachelor of Business – students will have more time to decide on their main study area. Formerly students could enter into a Bachelor of Business or a range of “tagged” degrees. Eg. Bachelor of Business (Marketing). In the new structure students will enter into the Bachelor of Business and choose their major while studying. Their transcript will reflect their major eg. Bachelor of Business (Marketing). This new structure offers greater breadth to business studies, with digital business at the core of our business and commerce degrees.
- Bachelor of Commerce will offer majors and minors to expand choice and flexibility aligning to professional career outcomes with digital business at the core and the option to take the new Industry Partner Minor.
- Bachelor of Laws will transform into the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) offering students a higher-level law qualification with Honours in just 4 years.
- Bachelor of International Relations will become the Bachelor of Global Studies, a degree for the internationally engaged student who wants to pursue the study of other cultures, societies and politics with significant mobility options. The new program offers a greater level of flexibility with multiple major options available. For high achieving students we will also be offering double degrees in Bachelor of Laws (Honours)/ Bachelor of Global Studies and Bachelor of Commerce/ Bachelor of Global Studies.
- New pathways for aspiring teachers with a Diploma of Teacher Education and Associate Degree of Teacher Education assisting passionate students to reach their goal of becoming a teacher and pathway to La Trobe’s Bachelor of Education programs. This program replaces the Bachelor of Educational Studies. It is recommended that students who are uncertain of whether they will receive the ATAR needed to enter a Bachelor of Education program also preference La Trobe’s education pathways.
Students will also have the flexibility of more course entry and exit points – this means more pathway opportunities and the chance to graduate with a Diploma after one year of study.
