What you need to know about new rights for casual employees

As of October 2018, casual employees now have the right to request a permanent part-time or full-time position after working for at least a year in a casual role. If, like many young people, you’ve spent a lot of your working life jumping from one casual job to the next then this is BIG news.

CHANGES to the 2019 university admissions cycle

The UAC PIN will be emailed to all Year 12 students in late March 2019.

The UAC guide will be released to schools for distribution to students in late March 2019. This publication will be smaller than previous years as the most up-to-date information will be online.

Applications will open online in early April 2019 – this is to accommodate all early entry schemes.

NOTE: not all courses will be listed in April, however students will be able to add and subtract preferences as the period progresses, and UAC will update the website and information in the UAC news when they release more courses as they become available.

Early Bird and SRS closing will be as usual at the end of September 2019.

All in all, the only thing changing is the opening date, all other dates such as ‘close of preference’ and ‘offer dates’ will run the same as other years.


I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and I hope you all have a wonderful and safe summer holiday.
