Welcome to the Woolooware High Careers Newsletter. Please note that the information provided on this page is not exhaustive. There are many opportunities available for students and we encourage that you regularly check the websites of the Tertiary Institutions that are of interest to you.

Where possible, the format of the newsletter has the Year 12 specific information toward the end. Information for all students is at the beginning of the newsletter. However, it is advised that students in year 10 and 11 familiarise themselves with scholarship, early offer programs and the likes so that you are aware of the processes and what you can start to do now to give yourself the best possible chance when you are in Year 12.

UCAT ANZ Closing Date Reminder

A reminder that the UCAT ANZ registration and online booking closes on 17 May 2019 at 11:59 pm AEST. There are no late registrations. UCAT ANZ has replaced UMAT from 2019 (for university entry 2020).

UAC NEWS and reminders

UAC has already received thousands of applications from Year 12 students for study in 2020.

To start their application students will need their Year 12 student number (issued through their school) and their UAC PIN (supplied by UAC).

Once they have applied they can use their UAC Application Number (generated once they input their personal details) and UAC PIN to login and manage their application.


Remind your students to provide their email address to NESA (preferably a personal email address rather than a school email address). NESA provides this information to UAC to send PIN information.


Institutions haven’t provided all 2020 course information to UAC, but let your students know that they can select any course commencing in 2020 for now to complete their application and come back later to review and update their preferences. All courses will be available through UAC by August.


Educational Access Schemes, Equity Scholarships and Schools Recommendation Schemes 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 have students who may be eligible for these schemes, encourage them to begin their equity application as soon as they've applied through UAC.
