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

Launching this year is the ACU Guarantee program, which will allow Year 12 students to gain entry to ACU based on their Year 11 results. Open now for 2021 applications, the ACU Guarantee program will see offers made as early as September – although you must still complete your Year 12 exams to qualify. If you’re 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.

Adjustment factors and access schemes

Other programs providing entry assistance include special access schemes for each state, and our adjustment factor programs including 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. 

University Experience

Would you like a taste of uni life before you enrol to study at ACU?

Come along to our free University Experience day. Tailored to your study area of interest, the day will give you an insight into campus life as a uni student.

Choose a workshop from a range of study areas, which may include nursing, midwifery, business, paramedicine, education, philosophy, physiotherapy, psychology, public health, exercise science and lots more.
