8th of December 2016

The ATARs are coming, and 12 months’ worth of hard work and dedication is about to be scored, standardised and spat out as a little number under 100. It’s a bit of an anticlimax really – a more fitting reward for all your hard work would be a solid gold, life-sized statue of yourself. Or perhaps a tour of the Greek Islands.

Ahead of the great ATAR anti-climax, we wanted to remind you that Open Universities Australia (OUA) is here for you – and that you can worry less about your ATAR.

For the last 12 months, we’ve been travelling around the country interviewing uni students and school leavers to find out exactly what you need, what you’re worried about, and how we can support you. We also learned one really important thing.

You are not alone.

We spoke with hundreds of students at career expos this year and asked them some tough questions. You’ll see how everyone else is feeling in this video.

Most year 12 students and first-year uni students are worried about the same things. And we might have the solutions you need.

Worried about your ATAR score?

If you don’t get the number you want, we can help you get in to a degree by one of our 10 leading Australian unis Find out more about open access options here.

Worried that full-time uni isn’t for you?

It doesn’t have to be. If you want to take your degree overseas and see the world, or if you want to work and make some money at the same time, we can help you with flexible online learning options that put you in control of your study plan. Find out more about studying online here.

Worried about choosing the right degree for you?

We can help you match your career goals to the right course, with over 150 degrees to choose from. Plus our Pathways program lets you get started in subjects that lead to multiple degrees – so you can start studying without committing to a degree until you’re ready.

Worried you might not succeed at uni?

If you’re worried you might not have the academic skills to you need, we can provide some extra help before you get started. OUA’s Student Success team can help you with preparatory courses and study skills.

There’s no one right way to do uni. And we’ll help you find your own path.

It’s uni on your terms.
