University Targeted Admission Scheme (UTAS) supplementary information

Application forms for Targeted admission schemes (Māori, Pacific, students with disabilities, students from low socio-economic backgrounds, and students from refugee backgrounds)

2015 will bring changes to the University’s Undergraduate Targeted Admission Schemes (UTAS). UTAS reserves a number of places in our undergraduate programmes for eligible students who have met the University Entrance (UE) standard but have not met the guaranteed entry score for the programme of their choice. UTAS applicants must be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents of New Zealand. UTAS is not available to international students.

From 2015, while remaining open to eligible Māori, Pacific, and students with disabilities, UTAS is also open to eligible students from refugee backgrounds (SRB), and students from low socio-economic backgrounds (low SEB). For the purposes of UTAS, “low SEB” applicants are school leavers from decile 1, 2 or 3 schools.

In order to help ensure a smooth transition into the new UTAS criteria, we have developed the attached list of Frequently Asked Questions about UTAS, as well as new and enhanced web pages:

·        UTAS (including UTAS policy and guidelines, FAQs and admission requirements)

·        Students from low socio-economic backgrounds

·        Students from refugee backgrounds

For the existing Targeted Admission Schemes (Māori, Pacific and students with disabilities) the Auckland Law School specific questionaires are listed below. It is important to complete the relevant questionnaire and return it to the Law School Student Centre no later than 5 December.
