Information sessions for Year 10 parents, guardians and carers.

Transition to university is a big adjustment not just for your teenager but also for you.

This is your opportunity to learn about all that is involved in the lead up to life at university.

You play a vital role in helping your children make the best choices about their future and year 10 is a great place to start! When teenagers select their senior subjects, it’s important they choose the right prerequisites for the university programs they are interested in.

These smaller group sessions will give you the necessary information you need to assist your child with making an informed choice about their future.

Sessions will be held by our expert Future Student Contact team who are all recent graduates from university. All sessions will be approximately one hour long with additional time for any questions you may have.

Topics include: (but not limited to)

  • Understanding the university language - Preparing for University in Year 10
  • The differences between high school and university – workload, hours of study
  • Scholarships – for students who are high achieving, from a low-income background, are excellent at sport or studying particular subject areas
  • QTAC, fees, accommodation and more
