University applications are open

The Year 12 Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) presentation for parents and students this week highlighted for our most senior students, that the university application process has commenced. Our 21st guest as part of the Futures Fair events this term was Ms Trudy Noller, the Community Engagement Manager at UAC. We were happy to see parents able to attend this presentation at school, with the option of connecting to the live stream. We have sent an email to Year 12 students and parents with a recording of the presentation, that you may view below or by clicking here.

Fit for purpose supporting documentation

With the university applications opening, the season for early entry and scholarship applications is upon us!

When applying for a scholarship, or early entry programme, it is important that students understand that the processes in place to allow them to respond individually, giving the institution the chance to get to know them as more than just a series of academic achievements. Responding to questions in these applications in a considered, thoughtful way will provide a well-rounded application that reflects genuine interest and commitment to the study pathway being applied for. A ‘cut and paste’ approach will only be useful if the questions being asked are exactly the same.

Just as for application questions being asked of students, letters of support or recommendation from the School will also be considered individually, with the aim of responding directly to the criteria identified. The process we have in place for preparing these documents takes time to complete as information from a range of sources in the School is included. Please encourage your sons to provide as much notice as possible if they require supporting documentation from the School.
