School presentation guidelines

We receive many invitations from schools to run information sessions on the ATAR and applying to uni. Unfortunately, we can’t get to everyone, so we’ve created some guidelines for requesting a presentation:

  • Single schools must have a minimum of 250 students and parents in attendance.
  • If your school can’t meet the minimum attendance requirement, join up with one or two neighbouring schools.
  • If you are in a regional area, check when UAC will be at an event near you, then join up with other schools and request a presentation around that date.

UAC Days

These professional development days are for careers advisers, year advisers and other senior secondary staff who advise students about subject selection, the ATAR and applying to uni.

The morning session explains the calculation of the ATAR and strengthens understanding of the scaling tables by involving participants in exercises and discussion. The afternoon session provides information on all things UAC, including Schools Recommendation Schemes (SRS), Educational Access Schemes (EAS), and the UAC application process. There will also be time for you to ask specific questions.

Bookings for UAC Days are now open.
