Experience Day 2017 – Thursday 5 January 2017

Information for Year 12 leavers receiving their final results

If you have students thinking about going to uni in 2017 and who want to explore options at Notre Dame after they receive their final Year 12 results, encourage them to join us for Experience Day on Thursday 5 January. Notre Dame goes beyond the ATAR as an indicator of potential; we intentionally look for more. We look at academic achievement as well as individual desires and motivations, areas of interest, service inside and outside school, individual subject strengths and much more. We also look at Year 12 results as we need to know the student can manage the workload of the course they want to do.

  • If a student expects to get the results that will get them directly into a degree – that’s great – for most courses our indicative (approximate) ATAR is 70. For Law the indicative ATAR is 90.
  • We also realise that sometimes, students get results that are below what they were expecting or perhaps they weren’t eligible to receive an ATAR.  Maybe they weren’t even considering uni in Years 11 and 12 but now want to go. That’s OK too as there’s a uni pathway for those who want to build their skills and confidence before moving into a Bachelor degree.

Experience Day provides the opportunity for students to visit the campus at Broadway to explore course options for 2017. Students can take a campus tour, chat with current students and staff, explore their course interests, get involved in a range of activities and lodge an application and enrol on the day if they wish.
