4 ISSUE 19 | September 2009 applIcaTIoN for STUdy for HIgHEr EdUcaTIoN IN 2010 Now opEN Charles Darwin University is a dual sector university and offers courses in higher education from undergraduate (Bachelor) to Doctorate, and also in Vocational Education and Training (VET) from Certificate I to Advanced Diploma level. HIgHEr EdUcaTIoN Applications for admission into Higher Education courses for 2010 are now open. You can make an application to SATAC based on your Tertiary Entrance Ranking (TER). Admission into an undergraduate course is by successful completion of the Northern Territory Certificate of Education (NTCE) or equivalent and a TER of 60 or higher. Information on additional special admission requirements are contained in the course outline, where applicable. Students who have previously studied Year 12 and a TER score of less than 60 but more than 49 has been attained at the end of Year 12 are still encouraged to apply for their chosen higher education degree course. This is done through the South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC), because Charles Darwin University awards bonus points to all Northern Territory school leavers as well as interstate school leavers from a high school in a rural or remote area that borders NT i.e. South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales. To apply for admission visit http://www.cdu.edu.au/study/ highered.html. vocaTIoNal EdUcaTIoN aNd TraININg Charles Darwin University (CDU) offers more than 100 Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses in 23 different industries, at CDU campuses and centres throughout the Northern Territory. VET courses range from Certificate I to Advanced Diploma level and include apprenticeships and traineeships. With such a variety of options, from hospitality and tourism to transport and storage, and automotive to business and clerical, you can choose the course that is right for you. A full list of current VET courses offered at CDU can be accessed at http://www.cdu.edu.au/cduvet/index.html This list provides initial details on courses available, the campus offering the course, career opportunities and general course information. Charles Darwin University offers continuous enrolment into VET courses. For most courses, all you will need to do is complete the enrolment form. However, some courses require students to complete a VET109 VET Course Enquiry prior to enrolment. The easiest way to check availability and the enrolment process for the course you are interested in is to contact the specific CDU team prior to enrolling. Most certificate courses do not have specific entry requirements but do require a satisfactory level of literacy and numeracy; a Tertiary Entrance Rank (TER) is not required for enrolment. Diploma courses require successful completion of Year 12 (or equivalent), completion of a Certificate IV, or relevant experience.
