Open Day- Saturday 28 July
Flinders University is once again offering this entry pathway for 2019 to your current Year 12 students.
What is uniTEST?
uniTEST is an aptitude test that has been developed to assess the kinds of generic reasoning and thinking skills that underpin studies at higher education and that are needed for students to be successful at this level. uniTEST is offered to your students at no cost and they cannot be disadvantaged by participating. Flinders University will select applicants based on both their Year 12 results (60% weighting toward the ATAR score) and uniTEST performance (40%).
Please see the uniTEST FAQs for additional information.
Since 2012 almost 11,000 students from 248 schools across Australia have participated, resulting in many students gaining entry into their preferred course at Flinders University by using a combination of their ATAR and uniTEST score. In 2017/18, approximately 300 students received an offer to Flinders University based on their uniTEST performance.
See me if you wish to sit this test.

Changes to the Vocational Education and Training (VET) selection rank schemes
From 2020 onwards however, UQ will no longer allow school-leaver applicants to receive a standalone selection rank on the basis of a VET award alone. This change will only impact students applying for tertiary entry in the year immediately following Year 12.
Non-school-leaver applicants will still be able to use their VET qualifications to apply for entry to UQ in subsequent years, and this change will not impact students completing their OP in 2018 (current Year 12 students) or 2019 (current Year 11 students).
Contact UQ Admissions on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on (07) 3365 2203.
There are two main changes to the selection process for the MD Program at UQ:
• The introduction of a Mini Multiple Interview as part of the selection process (only impacting current Year 10 students, or younger)
• The introduction of prerequisite courses to ensure students are well prepared for the first two years of the program (impacting all students)
Program update: Bachelor of Advanced Business (Honours), QTAC Code: 709101
Run by internationally respected industry experts and academics, the Bachelor of Advanced Business (Honours) is designed to ensure students stand out to employers.
This program can be tailored to help students achieve their career goals, with the option to choose up to three majors consisting of six courses from the one area of specialisation. The program's unique capstone course in leadership and ethics will give students the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to real business cases.
Entry is limited to a small, highly motivated and high-achieving cohort aspiring to leadership roles in business, the community or academia.

In 2018, The University of Queensland will be introducing an additional entry requirement for prospective students applying for the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours). This change will impact current Year 12 students applying for study in 2019.
