Our whole island is your campus

Schools Recommendation Program

Together with schools, we’ve introduced a program to help year 12 students get ahead.

You can apply for our exciting, diverse courses and secure your place early for the next year’s intake.

Our program allows Australian year 12 students to apply for up to five courses at the end of May. We will then release offers monthly from July through to early December, which will take the pressure off you during year 12.

Rather than an ATAR, your application is based on your school’s recommendation and your year 11 results.
