Thousands Less Apply to UOW Studies Through Universities Admission Center | Illawarra Mercury

news, latest news,

There was a decrease of 3,000 students indicating through the University Admission Center (UAC) a preference to study at Wollongong University in 2022. UOW’s total preference intake in 2021 via the UAC was 15,646. As of November 30, the total preferences for UOW in 2022 was 12,337. The preference snapshot released by UAC shows that UOW had 2,760 first preferences, up from 3,469 in 2021. But the first number of preferences is only a guide at best, as applicants can change their preferences as often as they want – and often do – so these numbers change on a daily basis.

This includes more than 40,000 NSW HSC students awaiting publication of their results . Based on figures from previous years, UAC expects around 20,000 of these students to change their preferences after receiving their ATAR with a realistic assessment of the courses for which they may be eligible. Those numbers are down about five percent from a year ago, as students increasingly apply directly to individual universities to maximize their chances of receiving an offer. Although UAC processes direct applications on behalf of individual universities, these preferences are not included in this tally. The ATARs will be released at 9 a.m. on January 20, 2022 to give 12th grade students time to review their preferences, which can be changed until midnight on Friday January 21 and the first main round of offers for 12th grade students on the ATAR base will be released at 7:30 am on Wednesday January 26.
