As always a vast array of information sessions from Sydney University:

Key Dates

Careers Space 2022 

On Wednesday 18 May 2022, we will have between 30-35 Alumni on campus to speak to our senior students in round table discussions and Q&A sessions about Alumni current careers, how they got to where they are and current students who are just setting up their careers. We look forward to having them all back on campus and to hearing any insights from our students.

Year 12

This week I launched the How To Apply process with Year 12. Most of our students will be applying through UAC at the end of the year, and the application is one that forms over time. UAC is officially open for business but just like a 24 hour shop, it does not mean that they have to start now. The most important date that I usually repeat is the steep price hike –  it changes from $73 dollars to $200 if students apply after the end of September. These dates are an important reminder for all students and parents in Year 12.

The Careers Reshet page for Year 12, has helpful and relevant links to resources that are commonly used.

HSC and Careers Expo    

This annual expo is taking place at Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park from Thursday 2 June 2022 – Sunday 5 June 2022.

I encourage all Year 12s and Year 11s to attend. All careers, tertiary colleges, universities, the Defence Forces, private colleges and anything career related will be represented here.
