With a unique focus on the small-group discovery experience, the University of Adelaide will make nearly 6000 offers for places in its degree programs for 2014 to the State’s best and brightest students.
As university offers are emailed to successful students across South Australia today, the University of Adelaide will have made 5880 offers in this first round.
Students can check whether they have been made a first-round University of Adelaide offer via the SATAC website(http://www.satac.edu.au/).
"Being awarded a university place is a dream come true for many school-leavers," says Acting Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Pascale Quester.
"Students are acutely aware of where their future job prospects may be," Professor Quester says. “Some are incredibly determined to pursue a specific career while others may be less certain of what they want to do in the long term.
"My message to incoming students is to remember that there are many pathways to a particular job. You’d be surprised how courses like arts, sciences and engineering can open doors to all manner of career choices.
“We hope that that this new group of incoming scholars will be inspired and stimulated by their University of Adelaide experience and go on to make a meaningful contribution to the community. “And it’s vital that we continue to nurture our local best young minds at the same time as welcoming international students to our State.”
This year the University of Adelaide will nearly triple its offers in the Bachelor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and will see significant increases (over 1/3) in the Bachelor of Media, Bachelor of Nursing and a number of engineering degrees.
“One of our recent strategies has been to introduce an advanced degree across each of the different faculties,” says Professor Quester. “We’re pleased to see the high level of take-up in both the Bachelor of Computer Science (Adv) and Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences (Adv) reflecting the appetite for these extended research-influenced degrees.”
The University of Adelaide will continue to accept late applications for some Bachelor degree programs including commerce, health sciences, sciences, agriculture, arts and media as these areas have also been expanded to respond to student demand.
Students wanting to enquire about late applications should check the University of Adelaide website or call 08 8313 7335. Country callers can phone toll free on 1800 061 459.
