Early Offer Engineering Courses at Curtin, UWA, Murdoch and ECU
Curtin, ECU, Murdoch and UWA are conducting a trial of issuing early offers for engineering courses to current Year 12 students, based on predicted ATARs.
What are the criteria for getting an early offer?
You ll need a predicted ATAR above a certain level, and confirmation that you re enrolled in courses that are likely to satisfy the universities English competence and course prerequisite requirements.
Can I still apply for other courses?
Of course. You can put in all your preferences from 4 July, if you want, or just put in an engineering preference to participate in the trial. Or you can wait. Just get an application in before 30 September, so you don t have to pay a late fee.
Do I have to apply early?
No, you don t. If you don t want to participate in the trial, you don't have to apply early. Even if you do want to take part, you ve got plenty of time to put in an application. It's not first come, first served, so you don't have to rush to submit an application the moment they open.
How do I get an early offer?
Apply via TISCOnline.
List the course you d like an early offer for as your 1st preference (you can always change preferences later).
Get a letter from your school stating your predicted ATAR and confirming which Year 12 courses you re currently enrolled in.
Scan the letter and send it to:
TISC will send it on to the university concerned.
Once the university has checked that you meet the criteria for an early offer, they'll send you an email with details of the offer.
What kind of offers are they?
The offers in this trial are conditional offers. They let you know that the university will be happy to have you as a student, however you will still need to meet certain requirements in your final results for the offer to be confirmed. Those conditions will be laid out in the offer you receive.
If you satisfy the conditions of the offer, you ll receive a confirmation offer in Main Round (18 January).
Do I have to accept the offer?
That s completely up to you. As this is a trial, we don't want to limit your options in any way. So whether you accept the early offer or not, it won t affect your chances of getting an offer in the main round.
Universities may ask you to accept the offer via their website, so that they can invite you to various activities. Even if you accept the early offer, you are still in the running for offers as usual in January. You can add preferences (for most courses), delete preferences and rearrange your preferences until 11pm on 5 January 2017.

[accordion_item title="Mindsmart Parent Workshops" accordion="accordion"]
A teen s job is to transition into an adult. This is a complex task, which often brings emotional turmoil. During this time, teens have the daunting task of learning to balance their own emotions.
Emotions lead to behaviour. Because teens are still learning to manage their emotions, they can be vulnerable to making undesirable behaviour choices:
alcohol abuse, illicit drug taking, smoking, harmful eating patterns, aggression, violence, self harm, suicide attempt
The problem is, these behaviours work by providing temporary relief of emotional pain, so they are reinforced and more likely to be repeated.
But short term strategies are not always so great in the long term.
And that s where you, as a parent or guardian, can help.
Maya Manning, Clinical Psychologist, will be running a series of parents workshops, from July to October 2016. During these workshops parents will learn:
what are emotions?
why are emotions important?
how to help your teen manage excessive emotionality
how to help your teen decrease unhelpful coping behaviours
how to help your teen increase helpful coping behaviours
2016 Workshop information:
1-3pm at St Catherine s College, The University of Western Australia, Perth.
Dates: 30 July, 13 August, 27 August, 8 October, 15 October, 22 October.
Attendance is $175 per person, or $300 per couple. Afternoon tea included.
