UAC: supporting the future of admissions

01 Jun 2018

THE higher education landscape is more dynamic than ever and universities are actively looking for alternative student recruitment strategies.

The Australian National University (ANU) is one such institution and the announcement of ANU’s new admissions model is the culmination of more than 12 months of collaboration between the University and UAC.

The new model aims to simplify the process for new students by providing admissions, accommodation and scholarship applications in one up-front process. It is applicant-focused and offers a seamless student experience with application outcomes to students earlier in the year so they can get back to focusing on their studies.

The system is underpinned by UAC Connect, our 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 that supports our comprehensive assessment services.

For over 30 years the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) has successfully serviced the higher education sector’s application, assessment and offer needs through centralised services for undergraduate, postgraduate, international and equity programs.

More recently, UAC has developed several bespoke admissions services for tertiary institutions through UAC Connect. 

UAC Managing Director Dr David Christie said, ‘We are pleased to have worked so closely with ANU to develop an industry focused admission model 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.’
