Dept of Education creates new Website to assist School Leavers

Dept of Education creates new Website to assist School Leavers

As you may be aware, the Department of Education and Training in partnership with the Tertiary Admissions Centres across Australia, have developed a new national higher education admissions information platform.

This was a key recommendation of the Higher Education Standards Panel in its October 2016 report 'Improving the Transparency of Higher Education Admissions'.

The new website 'Course Seeker' contains a national course comparison tool which allows students to search, select and compare up to four higher education courses nationally across different institutions and/or study areas. The website also allows students to filter course search results by ATAR, mode of study, study area and location.

We are pleased to advise that Course Seeker is now live and was officially launched by the Minister of Education, the Hon Mr Dan Tehan MP, last Wednesday 31 October 2018.

Course Seeker will provide prospective students with transparent information about Australian higher education admissions. This information will assist students in making choices regarding their tertiary education study.

Promotion of the website to students will commence via social media following the conclusion of Year 12 exams.

I encourage you to take the time to visit the website at www.courseseeker.edu.au. Institutions that may wish to provide feedback about their own content should contact the Tertiary Admissions Centre for their jurisdiction. Any other questions or general feedback about Course Seeker can be sent to: CourseSeeker@education.gov.au.

Yours sincerely
