Early Entry schemes: Posted 4-4-17 Deadline - No Deadline
CSU is offering Year 12 students the opportunity to be assessed for an early offer to study with us in 2018 at the upcoming MyDay events for Communication and Creative Industries related courses. Rather than having to wait until UAC/VTAC offers, Year 12 students could receive an offer during the year. The School of Communication and Creative Industries at CSU acknowledges that an ATAR score doesn't necessarily reflect a student's potential for a successful career in the communication and creative industries. Our Early Offer Program provides the opportunity for us to assess student's talents and ability to support success in this field. Open the attachment for details.
