Class of 2021 secures 74 early university offers

Year 12 students finished the HSC this week and in wonderful news, a record-breaking 74 students have received early university offers prior to receiving their ATARS or HSC results which will be released in late January.

And there are more early offer rounds still to come over December and January. 

Principal Shauna Colnan gave IGS Careers Advisor Amelia Phillips a brief at the start of the year to open as many opportunities as possible for Year 12 students to gain early entry to university.

”It’s wonderful to see our students pursuing these opportunities and being rewarded with so many reassuring early offers, especially given the year we have had and the uncertainties our Year 12s have had to face. I couldn’t be more proud of them, all of them.” 

Our students have received offers to study at UTS, Western Sydney University, Australian Catholic University, Macquarie University, The University of Wollongong, ANU, The University of Tasmania, Notre Dame University and The University of Sydney via their Creative Arts Special Admission Scheme (CASAS).

“Our students have worked tremendously well over the past two years during the pandemic and I am grateful for these Early Entry Programs that provide students with some relief regarding their study options for next year,” Careers Advisor Amelia Phillips said.

“The main offer round for Year 12 will be on 26 January where universities will be making offers based on the ATAR. Information will be sent to our Class of 2021 graduates closer to this time to remind them to change their preferences by 21 January in preparation for this round.

“Early Entry programs offer Year 12 students the opportunity to receive either a conditional or unconditional offer to study a course at university.

“Since 2019 at IGS, the number of Early Entry Programs has doubled from 17 pre-pandemic to 44 for this year’s Year 12 cohort. Despite the increase in the number of programs, the criteria that students must meet remains largely unchanged.”
