Student uni applications still open at Notre Dame!

15 January 2014

Tertiary Institutions Service Centre (TISC) and University Admissions Centre (UAC) offers may be out, but the door is still wide open at The University of Notre Dame Australia.

Applications can be received right up until classes start for students wishing to commence study in the first academic semester of 2014.

Notre Dame is one of only a handful of universities in Western Australia and New South Wales committed to offering this extra period of reflection and direct application. The University of Notre Dame Australia’s specialist course advisors are continuing to help students find the right course and the University encourages direct applications throughout January.

“We are aware of the pressure students feel in receiving an ATAR score at the end of December and then the mad panic to scramble for places at universities in early January,” Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Hayden Ramsay, said.

“Notre Dame prides itself on allowing students as much time and assistance as possible to make a considered and careful decision about the courses and the environment that best suits them.”

Notre Dame’s personalised admissions process sets it apart from other tertiary education providers, considering each applicant as a unique individual in a one-on-one interview with a member of academic staff. Applicants are assessed on personal qualities such as motivation, and aspirations and professional suitability, in addition to their ATAR ranking.

“Notre Dame is committed to providing students with the best learning environment possible to fulfill their academic goals and aspirations,” Professor Ramsay said.

“Reflecting our Objects as a great Catholic university with a broad commitment to excellence, Notre Dame students are renowned for their ability to think critically, act ethically, and seek meaning in life – something we’re extremely proud of as an academic institution.”

The Australian Graduate Survey’s 2012 Graduate Destination Survey recognized Notre Dame for its high graduate employment rate, with 85.6 per cent of Notre Dame’s bachelor degree graduates finding a job soon after graduation. This is almost 10 percentage points higher than the national average.

Notre Dame also offers a limited number of scholarships to prospective and currently enrolled students. Information on these scholarships and others, many of which are funded by government, industry and not-for-profit  can be found at
