WSU Scholarship Success

25 Jun 2020

WSU Scholarship Students 2020

We are proud of the following students who were successful in their application for the Western Sydney University Academic Access Program. There were 27 applications this year with 13 being accepted in to the program. These students will complete their 13 week university courses entirely online this year starting on 29th June.

The Nirimba Academic Excellence scholarship provides motivated students who attend Wyndham College with a unique opportunity to undertake university study at the same time as they undertake year 11 at school. This opportunity is a result of the partnership between: the schools; Western Sydney University; and Western Sydney University The College.

An agreement between these partners allows up to 20 students each year from the Nirimba schools to gain sponsored enrolment at WSU/WSU The College. Students who successfully complete a unit are able to gain an early offer of enrolment into most WSU courses on the completion of their HSC. Students may also become eligible for the award of a substantial scholarship as a result of successful completion of these units. The 20 available places are allocated to the schools on the basis of their total year 11 and 12 enrolments.

Recommendations are made by the Principals and staff of the schools, but WSU/WSU The College ultimately determines which students are able to enrol. They base these decisions on school recommendations and student applications. Students who complete the course will be offered $20 000 scholarship if they receive a distinction or high distinction and an early offer to attend WSU. If the student receives a credit or pass, they will receive an early offer.

As part of the scholarship students receive a $500 one-off payment in their HSC year. We wish these students the best of luck in their courses.

Selected Year 11 students from St John Paul II Catholic College and Wyndham College attended an orientation day run by WSU. The sessions were aimed to get the students started on their university pathway to early entry and a $20 000 scholarship if they are successful in their 13 week course.

This offer is exclusive to the two high schools on campus and is a benefit of the Nirimba Precinct Partnership that offers unique pathways for students from school to tertiary study.
