Year 12 Student Reminder: ACU Community Achiever Program Applications Close on 31 July

Students interested in courses at ACU are encouraged to apply and to investigate other early entry programs such as the ‘Passion for Business’ and the ‘Passion for Law’.

Please note: ASPIRE is another conditional early entry program offered by La Trobe University.

Tertiary Open Days

The Year 10s, 11s and 12s have been emailed a list of Open Days and a copy is also saved on the Portal at . Open Days are generally during the month of August so students should organise their visits by using the various Open Day Planners such from Swinburne University. Year 10 and 11 students are encouraged to attend at least one Open Day while Year 12s should be refining their preferences.

Some Tips to Maximise the Value from Open Days…

  • Check registration requirements prior to Open Days
  • Plan the day using the institution’s Open Day Guide which is available beforehand from their website noting the timing of information sessions
  • If a course includes an interview/folio presentation as part of the selection process (e.g. Design related courses), students may well be asked about experiences or impressions gained at Open Day
  • Prepare questions for staff and students such as course requirements, industry placements, employment opportunities or study abroad opportunities
  • Consider the general environment, for example, rural or urban, city or suburban, large or small, range of clubs or societies, student support services and transport
