University entry – 2022

It has been wonderful to field so many questions from your sons in Years 11 and 12 about early entry to university courses.

Early entry programmes are not available at all universities, nor for all courses. Most students will achieve the course offer they are seeking at the end of the year, after exams are finished, results are released, and when universities release an offer round. Early or direct applications are managed in two ways – through the Schools Recommendation Scheme managed through the UAC application process, or an individual university’s early/direct entry pathway, both of which will use Year 11 results to determine academic suitability for the course being applied for. They may also use additional criteria – for example, leadership experience or community service. Most of these entry pathways will be open next term. (Information about the early entry scheme for ANU, which opened at the beginning of this month was posted on the Canvas Careers space.)

UAC and universities are finalising their entry pathways options in readiness for next term. On 1 April, Year 12 HSC students will receive information from UAC regarding their course application process. Year 12 IB students will receive this information a little later in the term. They are not disadvantaged by the different timing as the full range of courses is not posted in the UAC space until August.

Parents and students may like to subscribe to UAC for information updates, by email, or via social media (Facebook and Instagram). I will share information when needed, directly with parents, and as well on the Canvas Careers space for our boys.

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
