The last careers presentation for Term 1 was on Wednesday 22nd March. The University of Wollongong provided students with information on courses, exchange opportunities and early entry schemes. The theatre wasn’t enough space for all the interested students who spilled into the aisles. This was an informative session and I hope provided students with valuable information. I look forward to the presentations planned for Term 2.
UAC Information evening
On Tuesday 28th March UAC held an information evening at Sydney Technical Boys High School to outline the changes to University applications in 2017. It was good to see quite a few Bethany students and their parents attend to get a better understanding of the new procedures. No doubt this was informative and helped students understand the new changes and how the Tertiary rank is calculated.
