The UNSW Gateway Admission Pathway and Program (GAPP) aims to make university entry more equitable. It offers under-represented students an alternative pathway into university, recognising that an ATAR is not the only indicator of potential success and preparedness for university.
The UNSW GAPP runs over three years from Year 10 to Year 12 and aims to prepare students from Gateway partner schools for university.

Gateway Summer Program
Students are supported to make informed decisions about subject selection, feel prepared for senior study and identify and navigate future pathways and post-school learning goals. Students are also guided to persuasively articulate and communicate future-focused personal narratives utilising dramatic techniques.
Gateway Spring Program
Building on lessons learned during the Summer Program, students discover the faculties and degrees available at UNSW through faculty-led interactive sessions. The Gateway Spring Program also supports students’ academic preparation for the HSC and supports students to prepare for their Gateway Admission Pathway application in Year 12.
Gateway Winter Program
In the final Gateway engagement, the Gateway Winter Program focuses on HSC preparation, with subject-specific workshops and practice exam feedback from HSC teachers and markers. Students will also be supported to write and submit their Gateway Admission Pathway application to UNSW.
