Career Guidance

All boys in Form VI Have been asked to collect the UAC Guide to University Courses for 2024 from SB10. There is also access to the digital copy can be downloaded here. The early bird closing date for university applications is Friday 29 September 2023.

ATAR and Adjustment Factors including EAS
The UAC advises that universities have a number of schemes that allow for adjustment factors that may mean applicants receive an offer to a course even though they have an ATAR below the published cut-off. Examples include pupils with a strong performance in HSC subjects and those who have applied for consideration through an EAS (Educational Access Scheme).

Applications for university scholarships are available online for Sydney University; UNSW are available online; for UTS are available online and for Macquarie University are available online. A school statement of support may be required and this is obtained through your son’s Housemaster. As the School is on holiday from Wednesday 20 September, boys must act immediately after the Trials if they require a statement of support or reference from their Housemaster.
