New generation uni admission goes live

04 Mar 2019

THE launch today of a new-generation tertiary admission system offers students a simplified, seamless application experience.

The system, a culmination of nearly two years of close collaboration between the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) and the Australian National University (ANU), is unique in its combination of admissions, scholarship and accommodation applications in one, up-front process.

The system is underpinned by UAC Connect, UAC’s bespoke business solution that provides full coverage of the admissions process from application to offer generation. The foundation for UAC Connect is UAC’s proven centralised applicant management system and comprehensive assessment services.

The power of ANU ASA (admissions, scholarships and accommodation) is its integration. Both UAC and ANU systems work seamlessly, enabling live data exchange and synchronisation of student information.

UAC Managing Director Dr David Christie said, ‘We are pleased to have worked so closely with ANU to develop a new-generation admission system that takes a holistic approach to Year 12 students applying for university.’

‘UAC has successfully implemented custom-built admissions solutions for several metropolitan and regional universities to date: helping them create the future of tertiary admissions.’

Direct applications for study at ANU in 2020 open today and close on 31 May 2019.

Applications for tertiary study at UAC's participating institutions open on Wednesday 3 April 2019.
