ACU Tips for Early Application

ACU understands that students may find online studying quite challenging. One of our ACU psychologists has given us some quick tips to help manage stress. 
Tip #1: Figure out what time management skills are best suited for you – Look into downloading an organisational app, to-do list or perhaps you prefer to plan your schedule using the classic pen and paper method. A schedule will help you manage your commitments and take the pressure off. Don’t forget to include breaks and fun activities too. 
Tip #2: Fill up on stress-fighting foods – It is convenient to reach out for a bag of chips or order a pizza to combat those late nights, however these foods do not burn your stress off. Try snacking on berries, which are rich in vitamin C and have been proven to help fight stress or cashews, which are rich in zinc and linked to lower levels of anxiety and depression. A calming tea such as chamomile may also help improve your sleep and calm those nerves. 
Tip #3: Master mindfulness – Constant stress and a mind that does not switch off can interrupt your sleep and hinder your ability to relax. Take time to refresh your mind. This could be a few minutes or half an hour depending on what you have time for. Mindfulness apps like Headspace and Calm can provide you with mindfulness exercises.

Galuwa means ‘to climb’ in Gadigal language and that’s exactly what we want Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students to do at UTS. The Galuwa Experience is a fantastic chance for young Indigenous high school students to discover the opportunities a degree at UTS can provide. 

The program is designed for high school students in years 10, 11 and 12 and introduces them to the undergraduate programs at UTS. The Galuwa Indigenous outreach program has been running for more than four years and has been a great success in building aspirations towards university study.  This program is designed to help high-school students understand what university education is like, and give them ideas for possible courses they could consider studying after high school. We also offer information about pathways into university, scholarships and support here at Jumbunna.

Macquarie Leaders and Achievers has reopened but closing soon
Given the current situation in NSW, we have reopened this scheme for Year 12 students.

Applications now close on Sunday 19 September. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the educational environment at schools and at universities over the last two years. Recent NSW Government announcements regarding delaying HSC written exams to 9 November has had significant impact on these students.  At Macquarie University, we recognise the anxiety and uncertainty many Year 12 students face due to the current situation. We understand there is some concern around university offers and planning for tertiary and HSC studies, as well as planning for attending university. We have always considered students to be more than their ATAR. That’s why we have multiple entry pathways to a degree. 

Students can also still apply for early entry to Macquarie through the Schools Recommendation Scheme which also closes on Sunday 19 September. 
More information about Macquarie Early Entry

The Future Students Contact Centre is open 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday to help with any enquiries students, teachers or parents may have.

She began her journey in her kitchen with a compounding chemist, trying to create foods using natural nutraceutical supplements. Eventually she created her ‘Health Jellies’, which are research-based, vet-formulated daily health jellies, which support a dog from pup to senior.

Amanda began working with CSIRO under the Kick-Start program to create a product at scale. She’s since been awarded commercialisation funding from the Federal Government's Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC) with a total project commitment of $344,850 and $149,925 provided in co-funding. These funds will establish a manufacturing line and finalise the development of the gummy chews, all from their new location in Mayfield West.
