YEAR 12 STUDENTS

Year 12 students have received a detailed SEQTA Direct Message this week with important updates. This update included a SATAC Update, Information on the STAT, TAFESA and CSPA test information and information regarding a change to Equity Bonus Points at Equity Schools for 2021.

SATAC have sent reminders to students that on enrolment (i.e. just after SATAC 15 January 15 offers), you will need an Australian Tax File Number and a USI. These are both free and we encourage students to complete the online applications as soon as possible. Please note that the Tax File Number takes a few weeks to obtain.

Many Universities are setting up targeted support services if you wish to make contact to discuss preferences relevant to that University with back up plans. UniSA are calling their service the Applicants Health Check. To make a booking please click here.

If students participate at an elite level in sport and wish to go to Flinders University, there is a special application due 1 December. For more information please click here.

The Playford Trust have sent a reminder about their very generous scholarships for up to 20 students enrolling at The University of Adelaide in Mining Engineering or Petroleum Engineering Degrees. For more information please click here.

The National Careers Institute (NCI) has just released a range of information and services designed to assist school leavers and to understand their education, training and work options. The School Leavers Information kit covers a range of topics to assist school leavers in navigating their options, both short and long term. We strongly recommend looking into this, for more information please click here.

The “Your Career” website also has many useful resources.
