Health top choice for study for university hopefuls

THE countdown is over for 38,000 university hopefuls, including Gladstone's recently graduated high school students.

Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre began releasing its first round offers on Thursday and there were a few happy smiles in the Gladstone region.

QTAC reports the most popular area of study this year was health, followed by society and culture (which includes psychology, history and law).

Study areas which showed the biggest increase in popularity includes information technology, agriculture and environment, and engineering.

There were a number of excellent OP scores around the Gladstone region, and there are school leavers who have already begun their own path to the workplace with casual jobs and trade apprenticeships.

QTAC says people can still lodge an application for courses commencing in either first or second semester.

FAST FACTS

  • Friday, February 1 is the final date to change or add preferences for the February 7 offer round.
  • New applications should be lodged by January 23 to ensure they are assessed in time for the February round.
  • Those who have missed out on their desired course are advised to consider alternative pathways. For example, completing a year in a less preferred course could improve competitiveness for admission in the following year.
  • The QTAC website provides information on courses still open for new applications and changes of preference.
