Record offer numbers from University of Adelaide

Tuesday, 15 January 2008

As university offers go out around the State tonight, the University of Adelaide has made more offers to potential students than ever before.

By tonight, about 4840 potential students will have been made offers for University of Adelaide degrees. Students can check whether they have been made an offer via the SATAC website from 6pm or wait to receive a letter mailed this afternoon.

Among them will be offers for a place in South Australia's first Veterinary Science School, to be based at the University of Adelaide's Roseworthy Campus. More than 170 first preference applications were received for the inaugural year of the Bachelor of Science (Animal Science - Pre-Veterinary) degree.

Despite the record numbers of offers made, however, the University is still encouraging late applications from students who would like to study at the University of Adelaide.

Acting Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Fred McDougall said: "The University of Adelaide to date this year has made 600 more offers to potential students than two years ago.

"That's an enormous increase already but, in line with our long-term growth ambitions and our aims to respond to the needs of industry, community and South Australian priorities, we still have places available in areas like engineering, commerce, science and humanities.

"I would encourage any student who would like to study at the University of Adelaide but may not have applied for various reasons to make an application."

The offers to date also include 57 offers to South Australian students to study Medicine at the University of Adelaide's Medical School with significantly more offers to SA students expected by the end of February.

Students wanting to enquire about late applications should call the University of Adelaide's Student Centre on 8303 5208 or country callers can phone toll free on 1800 061 459.
