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.”
