9 December 2009: It's 'change of preference time of the year', when prospective higher education students get the chance to reconsider the choices they've made and look at other new and exciting opportunities.
To assist students with the change of preference process, Australian Catholic University (ACU) will be holding information sessions at each of its campuses. These sessions are an opportunity for students and parents to speak directly with current students, lecturers and course coordinators about their particular course of interest.
ACU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Greg Craven, said change of preference was the perfect time for prospective students to assess their choices, get further advice, and even look at different ways to get into a course.
"University will be a huge change in your life that combines hard work with a lot of fun," he said. "With most degree courses being either three of four years its essential to make sure you have picked the right degree."
"And if you didnt get in, dont panic - contact the University and ask about pathway options, or to learn about other courses that you hadn't even thought of yet."
