Offers flood in for Year 12 grads

THE long-awaited celebrations for more than 37,000 QTAC applicants will begin when they find out they have been offered tertiary places from today.

The successful applicants join 12,500 others who received offers in the December and earlier rounds for selected performing arts, distance education and other courses, bringing the total applicants receiving offers to 83.4%.

This year more than 59,000 aspirants applied to QTAC for semester one entry to universities, TAFE or colleges in Queensland, northern NSW and Tasmania.

The most popular area of study this year based on applicants' first preferences was in health - including nursing and specialist health professions such as medicine, dentistry, speech pathology, and occupational therapy - although nursing showed a slight drop in applications.

Other study areas showing the biggest percentage increases in applicant popularity included engineering, information technology and science.

Applicants can find out if they have been offered a place today by visiting QTAC's Current Applicant online service at www.qtac.edu.au.
