Within the Academy, the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has established a college, known as UNSW Canberra at ADFA, responsible for conducting academic programs and research. UNSW Canberra offers undergraduate programs leading to UNSW Bachelor degrees in Arts, Business, Engineering, Information Technology, and Science and Technology. Where a specific degree lists a Year 12 subject as assumed knowledge, the table will enable you to determine which Year 12 subject this equates to in your state or territory. Requirements are expressed as minimum where there is more than one level. For example, to satisfy the Mathematics requirement, a NSW student would have to complete at least ‘Mathematics’, while a Queensland student would have to complete at least ‘Mathematics B’. A table listing the specific Year 12 subjects for each state and territory that currently satisfy the UNSW Canberra at ADFA Assumed Knowledge requirements can be found at http://sas.unsw.adfa.edu.au/future_students/ undergraduate/. At UNSW Canberra at ADFA, all undergraduate students must be either: ■■ employed by the ADF as either midshipmen of the Royal Australian Navy, officer cadets of the Australian Regular Army, or Royal Australian Air Force and reside at the Academy ■■ mature-age officer applicants who are Defence Force personnel applying for entry through service commissioning schemes or ■■ recipients of the Materiel Engineering Undergraduate Scholarship (MEUS). These students are selected by Defence Materiel Organisation and their university fees are Defence-sponsored. The MEUS is available for selection into the Aeronautical, Electrical or Mechanical Engineering program. While the Assumed Knowledge is the minimum requirement, Year 12 students are recommended to undertake higher levels of these subjects.
