Career appointments

We welcome all students in all years

Year 11 are encouraged to make an appointment this term when things are relatively quiet.  We have a number of tools and resources that can help with initial research and career pondering.

Anyone can make an appointment with a careers advisor.   We are  located in the LRC – please feel free to visit before and after school and at recess and lunch. Girls are most welcome to drop in but at times we can be busy with students, so the best thing to do is to send an email indicating your availability or drop in with your diary to schedule a time.

Simply email

Macquarie Entry Navigator

Everyone comes to university on an ATAR. Right? No, not with Macquarie Entry. ATAR is just one of the indicators we use to determine your suitability for study. It’s true that your ATAR rank can be a useful indicator of your chances for success in a specific course. But it’s equally true that for other courses there are other indicators we can use to assess your suitability. 


Use the navigator to see which entry pathway suits you best
