Short Courses and Information Sessions
headspace | Group Chat – the Perfectionism Predicament
Sunday 4 September 2022, 7:00 pm

Perfectionism can seem like a positive trait, as we often think it means doing well, and striving to do our best. However, for those living with the drive for perfection, it poses many challenges. It can impact our relationships with others, our mental health, and ironically, often result in us not doing as well as we could have.
Join our eheadspace clinicians and the headspace youth National Reference Group to learn more about what perfectionism might look like, its links to mental ill-health, and ideas about what to do if you think you might be experiencing perfectionism.

Let’s Chat – SRS Early Offers
Wednesday 7 September 2022, 6:00 pm
While the ATAR is still the main selection tool used by most unis, there are other ways for you to show that you’re ready to succeed at uni. Many institutions have one or more early offer schemes for Year 12 students. Through these schemes, institutions assess you using criteria other than (or in addition to) your ATAR.
We’ll give you an overview of the Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) and discuss:
  • how to apply
  • whether you’re guaranteed early entry if you apply
  • other universities’ direct early entry schemes
  • how many early entry schemes you can apply for.
