Taylors College has one over-riding Admissions Policy – we will only accept your application if your results indicate that you are able to pass the program.
Entry to the University of Sydney Foundation Program and High Achievers Preparation Program is for international students only. International students who are granted Australian permanent residency after accepting a place in the course may complete the USFP, but cannot be guaranteed entry to the University of Sydney under the conditions set down for international students.
As a guide, applicants for the Intensive Foundation Program must have achieved superior grades in English and relevant academic subjects. Students applying for the Standard Foundation Program must have achieved at least average grades in English and relevant subjects. The Extended Foundation Program is designed for students who do not qualify for the Standard program, or who want to develop a more solid foundation in key subjects such as Mathematics or the Sciences. Forecast results are accepted where appropriate.
Students are expected to test at the below scores at orientation.
