Applications are open
Applications for study at uni in 2024 are open. Students can apply for undergraduate study as well as the Schools Recommendation Scheme, the Educational Access Scheme and Equity Scholarships.
Although not all courses for 2024 are available now, encourage your students to choose any 2024 course to complete their application and come back later to review and change their preferences as courses are added. All semester 1, 2024 courses will be available by August.
Applications for international Year 12 students will open on Wednesday 19 April.
Students received their UAC PIN today. PIN emails were sent to the email address NESA or ACT BSSS has on file.
Remind your students to register a personal email address (rather than a school one) with NESA. They can do this by logging in to Students Online. This will mean they can still be contacted by UAC in December when they have left school.
Why apply through UAC?
We know that students are unsure about whether they should apply directly to an institution or through UAC, and to increase their chances many are doing both. Not all institutions accept direct applications from Year 12 students but it’s important for students considering a direct application to remember the following:
- A UAC application gives students five course preferences to choose; they don’t have to apply five times to five different institutions.
- Having a UAC application enables students to apply for Access and early entry schemes: EAS, SRS and Equity Scholarships.
- Having a UAC application as well as a direct application will give students more chance of securing an offer, so long as they don’t enter the same preferences in both applications.
The UAC Guide
The UAC Guide will be arriving at schools from the beginning of Term 2. Contact UAC if there are any issues with your school’s delivery.
The Guide contains everything Year 12 students – both domestic and international – need to know about applying for uni in 2024 in one handy publication. Comprehensive course descriptions can be found on UAC’s website. Course details can change throughout the year so encourage your students to check back regularly.
