UOW Early Admission
Applications for the 2019 Early Admission program will open at the UOW Early Admission website next Thursday 1 August at 10am, and will close on Friday 30 August at 5pm.
This year, UOW has partnered with the Universities Admissions Centre to power our applications system. Any student who is completing their final year at an Australian high school is eligible to apply. The application is very clear and easy to navigate; some highlights are:
  • Students will be able to register for Early Admission using their social media logins (facebook/Google/Linkedin), or they can login using their email address. As always, we ask that students don’t use their School email address, because we will need to communicate with them after they have left school.
  • When students progress past the first section (entering their personal details), they will receive an email to confirm they have begun their application, and will be provided login details so that they can log into their application to make edits.
  • As part of the application, students can nominate a person (usually a parent) to act on their behalf – this nominee will be able to access the application, call UOW on the student’s behalf to ask questions etc.
  • Students in NSW/ACT will need their NESA/Student ID number and 4-digit UAC PIN. Having these details means that their qualifications will automatically import into their application from UAC.
  • Students from outside NSW/ACT are still able to apply, they will be required to upload a pdf of their results to UAC as part of their application. They will be presented with clear instructions on how to do this once they indicate what state they are studying in.
All applicants will be required to answer four questions pertaining to the UOW Indicators of Success which will demonstrate applicants’ passion and dedication for tertiary study.
These questions are:
  • Academic Readiness - What are your study strategies for the HSC exams?
  • Motivation and Passion - Why do you want to study at UOW?
  • Communication and Collaboration - Describe a time when you worked with others to achieve a goal.
  • Planning and Persistence - How do you manage your time around your studies and other activities?  Include three strategies that you’ve used in Year 12 to prioritise tasks and organise your time.
Answers to these questions need to be a minimum of 100 characters, and a maximum of 500 characters. Note that this is characters not words, and a space counts as a character. This is not a test of students’ writing skills; they can use short answer/dot point style writing.
Once students have submitted their application, they will be able to amend the application up until 5pm on Friday 30 August.
Students will then be contacted in mid-September about the compulsory Early Admission Days held between Monday 30 September – Friday 4 October. Some students will be required to attend an interview as part of their Early Admission Day. This will depend on the course applied for and their application.
Students that are successful for Early Admission will receive an official UAC offer between 14 – 16 October.
The Early Admission website includes more details including FAQs; and there will also be Early Admission sessions at UOW Open Day…

UOW Open Day, next Saturday 3 August
UOW Open Day is the perfect opportunity for your students and their parents to spend a day exploring the university rated with 5 stars for student experience.

In addition to their room, the weekly fee covers students’ internet quota, electricity, water and gas. Plus, all residences are fully furnished.
Applications for 2020 are now open. You, and any interested students and parents can download the UOW Accommodation fees structure here.

UOW Scholarships
As your students are busily applying for Early Admission, accommodation etc, they should remember to also apply for UOW Scholarships. Many of our scholarships are open for application now. A full listing is here.
Your students may be interested in the Westpac Young Technologists Scholarships, which are designed specifically for high school graduates who are passionate about technology and eager to explore its potential for good.

UOW Bachelor of Arts in Western Civilisation
Commencing in 2020, the UOW Bachelor of Arts in Western Civilisation is for students who are intellectually fearless and ready to ask the big questions.
Throughout this degree, students will learn:
  • How to confront questions about art, literature, science, philosophy and religion as they investigate such topics as the nature of selfhood, truth, reason and wisdom.
  • How to engage in foundational debates rooted in the history of ideas that remain significant today.
  • How to engage with great works that present many, plural and diverging perspectives from within Western traditions of thought and art, while also becoming acquainted with under-represented voices and perspectives from outside of those traditions.
  • Why focusing on great achievements of Western civilisation should never involve denigrating great achievements of other traditions, and why all of these achievements deserve our attention.
  • How great ideas and art can shape us - our understanding of ourselves and the world - and how ideas can make a difference for good or ill.
Students can study the Bachelor of Arts in Western Civilisation as a single degree or double degree combination with the Bachelor of LawsBachelor of International StudiesBachelor of Creative Arts, or Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics.
Interested students, parents and teachers can register interest here and view the subject outline for further information.

CHANGES TO INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE
You may have seen recent media reports about upcoming changes to the International Baccalaureate (IB) schedule.
Tertiary Admission Centres around Australia are working on a fairer schedule to be implemented for 2022 admissions. The new schedule will enable more finely grained conversion of IB scores to ATAR ranks.
More details will be provided to IB schools, students and parents in the coming months.

ALL 2020 COURSES ONLINE IN AUGUST
If you’re planning to study an undergraduate course in 2020, all courses from participating institutions will be listed on UAC’s website from early August. If you’ve already applied and put in courses as placeholders make sure you log back in to your application and update your preferences at this time. 
If you haven’t applied yet, early bird applications close at midnight on Monday 30 September so this is also a good time to get your application in before the processing charge increases.

ACCESS AND SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS
A reminder that Schools Recommendation Schemes, Educational Access Schemes and Equity Scholarships are all open for applications.
These programs have opened earlier this year so schools have more time to help students with their supporting documentation like records of attendance, educational impact statements and student ratings (for SRS).
It also gives students more time to fill out their applicant statement, obtain supporting documentation like medical impact statements and Centrelink information, all before the pressure of final exams.
If you’ve already applied for EAS, don’t forget your supporting documentation. Your EAS application won’t be considered until UAC has received all of your paperwork.
You can check what you need to supply on UAC's website

HELP FOR YEAR 10 STUDENTS
UAC has launched a new online tool to help Year 10 students select their HSC courses.
Subject Compass suggests relevant HSC subjects based on a student’s interests, skills, personality traits, intended career path or tertiary study plans.

5 Tips to get the most out of your time at Open Days
Open Days are heaps of fun and, apart from getting there, they’re free.
So while it’s not a bad way to spend a day out of your weekend, you might as well do yourself a favour and really milk the experience.
Read the tips here - https://studyworkgrow.com.au/2019/07/16/5-tips-to-get-the-most-out-of-your-time-at-open-days/

Tertiary Admission Centres | Application Open Dates 2019
If you’re wanting to apply for Uni starting in 2020, you might need to apply through a Tertiary Admission Centre (TAC), and you should start the process soon.
 
What is a TAC?
TACs are centralised processing institutions, set up to handle the large number of Uni applications each year. They’ll deal with your application and be the ones to let you know of any offers (unless you’re applying directly to the Uni).
If you’re applying for Uni, you’ll need an ATAR or OP ranking number. You’ll be notified of your ATAR result by the relevant TAC for your state.
Lots of Universities encourage applications through the TACs. As you can imagine it’s a whole lot easier for the Uni as they don’t have to wade through all the applications, process them and respond.
For some Universities you can only apply through the relevant TAC. Other Universities will allow you to apply directly to them, or accept either method of application.
 
Save time
Applying through a TAC is a good idea if you plan on applying to more than one University and for more than one course. That way you can just fill in one form, you can often apply for scholarships or access schemes in the same application as well.
If you’re applying for Universities in different states though, you will have to apply through different TACs.
 
It will cost you
TACs charge an application fee, to cover their administration costs. These vary between each organisation.
Most of them offer an “early-bird” fee, so getting an application in early could save you time and stress.
If you still want to apply to Uni but don’t decide in time for the early-bird fee. Don’t worry, you can still apply. But the charges usually increase, some quite substantially.
 
Where to apply
If you’re applying for Uni in either New South Wales or the Australian Capital Territory, then you’ll need to apply through UAC. They are open for applications NOW.
CAREERS ON TRACK: JOBS IN THE RAIL INDUSTRY 
Rail is a fast-growing, exciting and diverse industry with a prosperous future. Most cities in Australia are now building new light rail or Metro services that are fast, efficient, digital, and safe. In fact, there is over $150 billion of new investment in rail over the next 10 years.
Working in rail is good for the environment, taking cars and trucks off roads, reducing emissions and road congestion.

The rail industry employs people with a wide variety of skills, attributes and interests. Whether leaving school, university, changing careers or returning to the workforce, rail offers a diverse range of interesting roles, such as engineering, IT, customer service, law, maintenance, administration, operating machinery, communication, management, and HR. 
The industry is looking for new entrants, graduates, mid-career professionals, apprentices and trainees. Safety, professionalism, staff development and great pay and conditions are all part of working in the rail family.
More than 200,000 people are employed by over 180 companies comprising private and public operators, passenger and freight operators, track owners and managers, manufacturers and suppliers who operate in urban, regional, and rural areas of Australia.

Many in the industry identify the diversity of roles and the variety of tasks as things they like most about working in rail. “I don't think many other industries offer such a choice of areas you could specialise in. This applies to all engineering disciplines from mechanical to electrical, software or structural engineering, or even project management, legal, politics, contracts, industrial relations, and the list goes on” Matthew Lokot, a Senior Fleet Engineer with Bombardier said.
The rail industry is also one that many employees take pride in being involved in as Brett Andruszkiewicz, Unit Manager of Tram Operations at the Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure (SA) identifies “There is satisfaction in providing a valuable service to the community that is depended on by thousands of people.” 
More information on the types of jobs available in rail, the pathways to entry and insights from rail employees can be found at www.railcareers.net.au
