Prospect Management

Prospect Management works to assist all future students on their journey to the University, from initial awareness and consideration of our offerings, through to application and acceptance of an offer.

The team includes the Future Student Enquiry Service, which is the central point of contact for all future student enquiries via phone, email, live chat, social and face-to-face appointments.

Our portfolio includes international and domestic students interested in studying at undergraduate or postgraduate level. We do not manage prospects of HDR, online or University of Adelaide College offerings.
