LAT is a requirement for domestic applicants* who wish to study an Undergraduate Law Degree program (Double Law UAC code 426000 or Psychology (Honours)/Law UAC code 426060) at UNSW Sydney. 

Eligible applicants

Applicants must meet one of the following conditions:

  • are currently enrolled in their final year of secondary schooling (year 12 HSC or equivalent).
  • have already completed their secondary schooling (e.g. those on a gap year).
  • are currently studying at university and wish to apply to transfer to Law (except UNSW Sydney students applying for Internal Program Transfer).

Ineligible applicants

The following applicants are not eligible to sit LAT:

  • international applicants^
  • students in a school year beneath year 11. This includes students in year 10 or lower who are studying subjects at year 11 level or higher.

Applicants not required to sit LAT

The following applicants are not required to sit LAT:

  • UNSW Sydney students applying for Internal Program Transfer (IPT) to Law. IPT applicants will be assessed on their UNSW Sydney results only
