Careers 8/4/22: Forensics, Hospitality, Engineering and more


UAC is preparing to open applications for Semester 1, 2023 courses on 12 April, 2022.

2023 UAC Uni Admissions Information Session

Join us for the 2023 UAC uni admissions information session on Facebook, 5pm to 6.30pm Thursday 7 April. We’ll be discussing 2023 uni admissions, key dates, early offers, and UAC access schemes.

I’m completing Year 12 this year. When can I start applying for early offers?

  1. UAC applications open on 12 April.
    Once you’ve completed your application for undergraduate study, you can then submit a Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) application. SRS offers are based on criteria other than (or in addition to) your ATAR.
    SRS applications close on 19 September. First SRS offers will be released November Round 2 on 11 November, 2022.
  2. Many institutions also have their own early offer schemes, which require you to submit a direct application.

From UAC: Everything you need to know about the ATAR in (just over) 2 minutes.

HSC students: don’t stress! Here’s a quick and simple ATAR explainer without all the jargon.

The ATAR is a rank, not a mark.

The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) is a number between 0.00 and 99.95 that indicates a student’s position relative to all the students in their age group (ie all 16 to 20 year olds in NSW). So, an ATAR of 80.00 means that you are 20 per cent from the top of your age group (not your Year 12 group).

Universities use the ATAR to help them select students for their courses and admission to most tertiary courses is based on your selection rank (your ATAR + any applicable adjustments). Most universities also use other criteria when selecting students (eg a personal statement, a questionnaire, a portfolio of work, an audition, an interview or a test).

The average ATAR is usually around 70.00.


Benefits of Internships

Internships, both a valuable add-on alongside an academic degree and a great way to explore and develop skills in a new industry. Also known as placements, internships are often a good way to add get relevant experience onto a resume when branching out into a new sector.

Here are some things worth knowing about the benefits of internships.

It opens networking opportunities

Getting a foot in the door into a new industry is the perfect way to meet like-minded people. It’s advisable for interns to meet a range of people outside the department or company as they might find themselves being asked to stay on for work in other areas of the business.
