In line with their diverse range of academic and co–curricular interests, the Class of 2018 will head into a varied set of post-school destinations.
More than 63% of students received a VTAC offer for their first preference for tertiary study. This year, after all VTAC offers were made, 91% of students had received an offer for their third preference or higher. Numerous students received multiple offers, having applied to study at interstate and overseas institutions.
Interstate offers to date include ANU (17), UNSW (1), Charles Sturt University (1) and Sydney University (4).
In 2018, eight students applied to study at UK institutions. Seven students included either Oxford or Cambridge in their range of applications. Six were invited to interview and all took up this offer.
Two students were subsequently offered a place at Oxbridge: Oxford (Austin Haynes, Literature) and Cambridge (John Lush, Classics). Students were also offered places at St Andrews, Kings College London, Durham and Edinburgh universities.
To date, four students have been admitted to other international universities – Harvard College (Daniel Blunt), New York University Abu Dhabi campus (Bevan Chu), University of Chicago (Stanley Zhu) and Rice University (Campbell Salmon). Several other students are still awaiting the outcome of their US applications.
