Early Offer Guarantee gives you the chance to receive an offer to study at UniSC as early as August, long before ATARs and final results are released so you can head into your final school exams knowing you’re sorted for 2024.
How does it work?
The offer is made based on your school Principal's recommendation and is independent of your Year 12 results. Your Principal will consider your academic performance, as well as your motivation, talents, passions, and abilities to see if these are a match for success at university. If your Principal recommends you for the Early Offer Guarantee, then as long as you have met the prerequisites and other program-specific requirements for your chosen degree, you’ll receive an early offer to study an eligible program at UniSC.
All offers made before the last day of school will be conditional on you completing Year 12, so make sure you keep going to school and do your best in your exams.
To be considered for the Early Offer Guarantee, applicants must be current Year 12 students attending a school within Australia that has opted-in to participate in the initiative.
