Step 1

Do your research:

  • Visit Recommended reading list page
  • Collect Relevant brochures
  • Attend Career and Subject Expo’s
  • Speak with your teachers, College course and career advisers, family and friends!

Step 2

Five key considerations in your choice:

  • CAREER GOALS – narrow down your interest to potential industry areas, not necessarily specific jobs
  • PATHWAYS – identify whether a university or pathway (eg TAFE or another RTO) or a blend of the two if necessary to achieve your career goal(s).
  • University entrance score (ATAR): A minimum of four 20 credit stage 2 subjects or course equivalents is required.
  • INTERESTS – choose subjects that genuinely interest you.
  • ABILITIES – choose subjects you are capable of doing well.
  • PREREQUISITES – certain university courses require you to have studied particular subject(s) in Year 12.
