EARLY ACHIEVERS PROGRAM - APPLICANTS NOTIFIED 25 NOVEMBER 2016

Admissions will notify all applicants for the Early Achievers Program by email on Friday 25 November regarding the outcome of their application.

They will be advised either that their application was unsuccessful, that their application could not be considered because it was not complete (we did not receive verification of their community experience from any referee), or that they have an EAP offer.

The EAP offer email will detail the steps they need to take to ensure that they are made an official offer for Semester 1, 2017 in their nominated course.

A specific group of approximately 60 students will receive an email for an alternative course offering.  These students achieved a high score for their community experience but applied for one of the following competitive courses, where EAP places were strictly limited:

  • Bachelor of Occupational Therapy
  • Bachelor of Paramedicine in North Sydney
  • Bachelor of Physiotherapy

These applicants will be asked to reply to the email from Admissions if they wish to accept an alternative offer.
