Access about more than ATARs
Charles Sturt U has a new alternate entry scheme which, “focusses on emotional intelligence, collaboration, empathy, communication skills, resilience.”
People who are accepted for the CSU Advantage programme, “become part of an exclusive nurture programme that will support them to develop their soft skills prepare them for university, and connect them with a community of like-minded people.”
There are 50 or so degrees on offer and for school-leavers acceptance is conditional, with required ATARS ranging from 55 to 65. The exception is pharmacy, which requires an ATAR of 70. The University of Sydney requites a 90 ATAR for its pharmacy degree.
