Senior College Career Chats – Applying Interstate
A useful starting point is The Australian Education Network of Australian Universities website which allows users to search for courses across Australia. It also has information about University rankings and, for example, you can search by state, University and course type. http://www.australianuniversities.com.au/
Our next Career Chat session will be on Wednesday 13 April from 1.00 – 1.30pm in the Careers Room when a representative from Bond University will attend Tintern to speak with students from Years 10, 11 and 12. Tintern Grammar is a collegiate school and that means our students can apply for the ‘Collegiate Scholarship’ which represents 50% of the tuition fees for a single or double degree with the exception of the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. The criteria includes academic excellence, leadership skills and community involvement. There are also a range of other scholarships available at Bond University.

Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT)
This site was introduced by the Australian Federal Government during 2015 and it aims to assist students to make more informed decisions about their tertiary studies by collating different survey data from the Universities. The strength of this website is that it allows comparisons to be made between Universities relating to the degree of student satisfaction relating to the following types of information:
- Quality of teaching during course
- Engagement with institution and sense of belonging
- Provision of learning resources
- Level of support received at their institution
- Skills acquired during their studies
Other data includes percentage of students in full time employment 4 months after completion of their course and median salary for graduates in full time employment. https://www.qilt.edu.au/
