JMC Academy Virtual Open Day - Saturday 15 August
With the recent announcements from the Federal and State Government of billions of dollars in support for the creative industries, the focus on Australia’s future within the Creative Industries themselves has really come into focus.
The resilience, adaptability, vision and heart of our creative industries will be on display during our Online Open Day on Saturday 15th August, challenging perhaps your own expectations of where the industry is headed in terms of growth and renewal. You’ll meet some of our current students and Alumni as they talk about their journey from passionate creative to a sustainably employed creative.
This programme will build upon our previous Open Day where school leavers will learn more about what it means to commit to study and a creative journey. Sessions on 'Why you should back yourself as a Creative' and ‘The Future of Work’ will enable students to hear from 1st years and right through to a few years into employment and how their perceptions, experiences and world have all helped shape where they are today.
As always, you'll be able to view detailed course overview information sessions and participate in live Q+As with our admissions teams, students and experienced Heads of Department. There will be loads of on-demand content to view also including virtual campus tours, what’s new for JMC in 2021 (including the opening of a brand new campus!) with our CEO Dr George Markakis. Most importantly you’ll uncover the secret to why JMC has been ranked #1 for student satisfaction amongst all private creative institutions in Australia*.

LATROBE UNIVERSITY HAS LAUNCHED SOME NEW ENTRY PROGRAMS FOR 2021
Latrobe University has just launched some more new pathways to tertiary study. Please see info below and research further online.
Latrobe have created two free pathways where students can study a La Trobe subject or micro-subjects online – and we’ll use their results, instead of an ATAR, when they apply for an eligible Bachelor’s degree.
In Achieve at La Trobe, VCE students can complete a first year La Trobe subject online in Semester 2, 2020. We’ll use their mark to calculate an ATAR-equivalent score – and if it’s higher than their ATAR, we’ll use this score when they apply to La Trobe.
In Prepare for La Trobe, students can complete online and free micro-subjects from our Tertiary Preparation Program that’ll give them the skills to thrive at uni, as well as an ATAR-equivalent score they can use when they apply. VCE students will complete three micro-subjects and VCAL students will complete six.
Both pathways are free, online and offer tailored support services to help your students succeed.
Explore our full range of pathways and entry schemes. https://www.latrobe.edu.au/study/apply/pathways/undergrad?cid=edm%3Aacs%3Anan%3Anan%3Anan%3Ainf%3Acon%3Anan%3Anan%3Anan%3Anan%3Anan%3Anan%3Anan&deliveryName=DM7242

UNE Early Entry Scheme is now openIf you are considering UNE please take a moment to read through this information below.
What makes UNE's Early Entry Program so unique?
UNE's Direct Early Entry program is not new and has been running successfully for more than 20 years. They understand that an ATAR is not the only measure of future success at university. Instead, our approach relies on the School's/TAFE's recommendation of the student, including the student's personal attributes, ability to work and learn independently as well as their overall potential for academic success at UNE.
What is Early Entry
Students will be able to choose up to 3 course preferences in their free online application, which will be combined with:
Students' ATAR will not be part of the assessment process so even our non-VCE students can be included.
- their academic performance;
- our school's recommendation; and
- any extenuating circumstances that will be taken into consideration.
Students will receive their offer directly from UNE in November. Even if the student does not meet minimum criteria for a degree offer, they will nevertheless receive a place in UNE Pathways program. UNE's Pathways Enabling Course is free and will build their study skills and capability to get them into their course of choice.
Of course all students are encouraged to keep their options open and a UNE Direct Early Entry application does not exclude them from applying through VTAC or to any other university.
Benefits of UNE Direct Early Entry
- Open to all year 12 students
- Apply directly to UNE online
- It's free to apply
- ATAR is not required
- Know in early November that your students you have a place at UNE
- Students can still make other applications via VTAC
- Most courses can be deferred
- Study fully online options available for most courses
- Study on-campus options available for most courses with affordable accommodation in their residential system.
Find out more about the program on UNE's Early Entry page.
Key Dates for Early Entry

VU Guaranteed 2020 applications now open / Update on scholarship application processWe hope you’re keeping well during this unprecedented time for us all. In this period of uncertainty, we’re pleased to share that our VU Guaranteed program will proceed as usual in 2020 – with an exciting development.
Thanks to feedback we received from participating schools, from 2020 the VUG application will double as an application for VU’s next generation of scholarships. Our Ignite scholarships and study grant acknowledge students who demonstrate passion and drive, and are inspired to use further study as a way to become world changers. Students who can show their passion for learning, willingness to develop themselves and their communities and a desire to become world changers are ideal VU scholarship candidates.
Two Year 12s from your school will receive a $2000 Ignite scholarship to VU or VU Polytechnic, and one Year 11 from your school will be awarded a $500 Ignite study grant to help set them up for success in Year 12. These scholarships can relieve the financial stresses students face, and enable them to pay for study essentials like technology, transport, textbooks – or developmental experiences like travel.
You know your students best – so while we facilitate the application process, the school will decide on the scholarship recipients.
These scholarships will replace our previous Chancellors and Achievement Scholarships. We anticipate the Ignite scholarship program will grow in the coming years as we make this transition.
To continue to support students for the duration of their education, we have also introduced the Thrive scholarship program. Our Thrive scholarships provide currently enrolled students the chance to access equity-based funds or support. VUG students applying for these new equity-based scholarships upon commencement will also receive accelerated access to apply.
All Year 11 and 12 students from your school are invited to apply for the VUG program. Successful applicants will enjoy a guaranteed place at VU or VU Polytechnic prior to final Year 12 exams. Visit the website to find out more or direct students to apply.
