Year 12 University Information Session  

Applying to study at University can be a daunting process for students. Decisions about which University to attend, which course to study, Early Entry, how to apply through UAC and what scholarships are available.
All these questions were discussed last Tuesday, at the University info session held as part of the Study Hub. The good news is if you missed it, the session is repeated THIS WEDNESDAY at 4pm. Come along and have all your questions answered!

 

Year 12

Information is already beginning to arrive in relation to Early Entry Programs at some universities.

Charles Sturt Uni believe “there’s more to life than your Year 12 results. So how can we help students show us their advantage?

We knew soft skills were key. But what are soft skills?

They’re skills like emotional intelligence, collaboration and communication skills, resilience and a commitment to creating a world worth living in. We’re looking for those special soft skills – things that might not always be reflected in your academic results – but they’re skills that help you excel in the working world.”

Register at https://study.csu.edu.au/study-options/pathways/charles-sturt-advantage  to learn more about the CSU Advantage Early Entry Program.

The University of Wollongong have released the dates for Early ?Entry applications. They will open on July 20th (first day of Term 3) and close on Friday 14th August (Term 3 Week 4). There will be lots of information sessions available to assist students interested in applying for Early Entry at UOW coming up in Term 2.

Students interested in studying at ANU Canberra. You can apply direct to ANU for 2021 and get an early conditional offer. This will allow you to focus on what's really important - completing your final year.
