Course Advice Day(s)

Taking the next step from high school to university can be overwhelming. UC’s Course Advice Days provide an opportunity for your students to get all the information and support they need with applications, enrolments and starting their new chapter at UC. We will be offering two slightly different Course Advice Days in December and January:


Friday 10th January 2020,



We can help your students kick-start their tertiary journey by providing one-on-one assistance with applying, accepting their offer, or enrolling in units. We will have all of our support services, pathway programs, accommodation providers and helpful staff on hand to answer any questions.


Wednesday 18th December 2019, 10am-2pm


This session  is perfect for students who have already received an offer to study with us, as well as those who are worried about their ATAR and wanting to explore their options.


Explore UC Day: Save the date

We are pleased to announce we are organising Explore UC Day in late March 2020.
The Explore UC Day is the perfect day for your students to experience life as a student on campus at the University of Canberra. The day will feature an array of activities for students including mini lectures and interactive workshops across our five Faculties.

Please save Monday 30th of March and Tuesday 31st of March in your calendars and we will send through more details closer to the day.

Fast Forward Program Update


It is with great excitement that we announce that our inaugural cohort of Fast Forward Program participants have been selected. The level of interest that the first program generated and the quality of the applications well exceeded our expectations. We will be formally welcoming our Fast Forward Program participants into the program at our Welcome Function next week, and we would love it if you could join us.

DATE: Wednesday 11th December 2019
TIME: 5:30-7:30pm
VENUE: Ann Harding Conference Centre, Building 24 University Drive South


Careers Advisor Web Portal


We are in the process of developing a new web portal for you to house the information that we share with you throughout the year, including handy resources, UC event details, our library of newsletters, and other updates. The new portal will also provide you with a handy location to book engagement activities with us. We hope to have the portal ready by the end of January, in time for our new year of engagement. 


Update Your Details and Feedback

With a new year comes changes from both our team here at UC and at your schools; please help us keep your details up-to-date by taking a moment to update your details below.

There is also a section on this form to leave feedback. If you have had any queries or concerns about activities we have run with you, or just want to tell us what worked well, we would love to hear from you.
