We’re giving three lucky students the opportunity to win the ultimate ADFA Open Day VIP experience across two days, 24-25 August. It will give them an exciting taste of life at ADFA, where they could have the added advantage of gaining a world-class University of New South Wales degree with no HELP debt.
All they have to do to enter is take our fun quiz to find out which famous leader they're like; then tell us why they’ll make a great leader themselves one day. Entries are now open and close on July 19, 2018, so be sure to direct them to our website for their chance to enter and win.
Your students will benefit from a unique education that combines degree study with Service training — and they’ll acquire valuable leadership and management skills at the same time.
They can undertake a world-class degree in Arts, Business, Engineering, Science or Technology and get paid while they study. Once they graduate they’ll head straight into an amazing job as an Officer in the Navy, Army or Air Force.
The benefits they'll enjoy at ADFA include:
• The best student/teacher ratio in the country
• A salary plus superannuation while they learn
• Leadership and management training
• Subsidised food and accommodation
• Free medical and dental care
• Free fitness, sports and leisure facilities

A guaranteed job once they've graduated.
Important Changes To Tertiary Entrance
From 2020 onwards
UQ will not be considering 'alternative' qualifications from current school leavers for tertiary entry in the year following Year 12.
UQ will accept the inclusion of VET qualifications and performance ranks in the calculation of an OP.
At the moment they will accept a stand alone qualification, however, from 2021
• School leavers who obtain an ATAR will be assessed on their ATAR -, if they have completed an eligible qualification at school, then that qualification can also be assessed for entry independently.
• School leavers who pursue only a qualification as a secondary school outcome will not be eligible for entry to QUT on the basis of their completed qualification alone for a period of two years following their secondary studies.
• School leavers with neither an ATAR nor a VET qualification (ATAR-ineligible applicants) will not be eligible for entry to QUT.
• Performing arts qualifications will not be assessed for admission for any applicant.

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.
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)
