While Year 12 is a challenge at the best of times, finishing school in the midst of a global pandemic is tough. So, we’ve been looking at a range of ways to help and support you during your final year of schooling – from exam support to university admission. We’re hoping these programs and activities will help you gain confidence as you approach exams, and provide some certainty around university entry in a deeply uncertain time.

ACU Guarantee

ACU Guarantee allows Year 12 students to gain entry to ACU based on their Year 11 results. Opening in June 2021 for 2022 applications, you may receive an offer as early as July, although you must still complete your Year 12 exams to qualify. If you are concerned about your Year 11 results, you can apply for additional adjustment factors by submitting up to three statements outlining personal circumstances and your motivation for university study.

Year 12 students who receive an ACU Guarantee offer will also be able to access Studiosity – a 24/7 on-demand online study support service. You can connect live to access online tutors in real-time.

Adjustment factors and access schemes

We offer a range of entry assistance programs, including special access schemes for each state, and our adjustment factor programs like the School Relationship Program, Campus Program, Subject Program and Regional Schools Program. Each adjustment factor program will automatically grant eligible students up to five adjustment factors (eligible for a maximum of 12 adjustment factors across all programs).

Please note that a different process applies to applications for the ACU Guarantee program where you may receive a maximum of 10 adjustment factors.

Open Days in-person and online

Deciding what to study is a pretty momentous decision. That’s why we run Open Day – it’s everything you need, in one place, to help you make your choice.

This year we are running both on-campus and online Open Days. Check out our website to see what’s on offer near you, view on-demand study area videos, virtual tours, photo galleries and more. If you still have questions you can contact our friendly AskACU staff.

Campus tours

Explore your campus and discuss your study options by booking a guided campus tour.

Due to current public health restrictions by some state governments, our group campus tours have been temporarily suspended for some of our campuses but will be up and running once restrictions ease. For now, you can explore our campuses with our 360-degree virtual tours.  

Study at ACU Webinars

Join us online to have all your questions about studying at ACU answered. Get helpful advice on how to apply, find out more about pathways to uni, explore your study options and hear from ACU students about what life is really like at ACU. Study at ACU Webinars are held regularly and you can register for one or all webinars.

Talk with Industry webinar series

Join us for one of our Talk with Industry webinars, a series of panel discussions featuring ACU graduates across a range of different professions. You can hear from ACU graduates about their work experience and get tips and advice for pursuing a career in your area of interest.

Change of preference

We’re running a series of Change of Preference Information Sessions across our campuses to help you navigate your study options, alternative entry and admissions pathways once you’ve received your Year 12 results. Held in mid-December, these events include personalised campus tours, information sessions and one-on-one consultations. Information will be available on our Future Students Events website soon.
