Deciding which university to attend and course to study can be stressful. This stress can be heightened when offers from universities are being made, as it can be easy for students to feel overwhelmed.
As Victoria's number one university for student support (Good Universities Guide 2020), Federation University Australia will host an Info Day on December 13, to assist students through this period. Course advisors will provide one-on-one advice on ATARs, how to change preferences, courses, scholarships, applications, pathways and a range of student support services.
Advice will be offered on frequently asked questions including what happens if I don't receive my first preference? What happens if I do receive an offer from the university of my first choice? What do I need to do next? Students are also welcome to explore our campuses on Info Day and see for themselves why Federation University is ranked Victoria's number one university for graduate starting salary and full-time employment (Good Universities Guide 2020).
Associate Professor Annette Foley, Associate Dean, Accreditation in the School of Education, said students who received an offer from the university of their first choice should celebrate meeting the requirements.
"For those students who don't receive an ATAR they were expecting or wanting, it is important for them to know that they have options and that not all is lost," she said. "This can be a time for students to recalibrate and think about what they want to do. My advice to these students is to relax, take a step back and assess their options. Start by doing some research around what is on offer. Remember that you have your whole life ahead of you and there are many options, opportunities and pathways available to lead you to the career of your choice."
