Sarah Langley, Alex Darling and Tom Mullins will all be heading off to university next month after receiving their course offers on Friday.
The wait was over for many prospective university students on Friday afternoon when this year’s first round of offers was released.
All three have studied at St Augustine’s since primary school and were pleased when they received emails confirming their offers.
‘‘I was feeling quite confident I’d get the offer, but you’re never quite sure until you’ve actually got it,’’ Alex said.
He will be heading off to Melbourne next month to study science at University of Melbourne’s Parkville campus.
In the longer term, he is hoping to get into the field of astro physics and a possible career working at a university.
‘‘I’m looking forward to the new experience of going to university. In a way it’s still going to school, but it’s really a whole new journey,’’ he said.
Tom will also be moving to Melbourne to study journalism at La Trobe University’s Bundoora campus.
‘‘I’m looking forward to meeting new people and gaining independence,’’ he said.
‘‘I think I’m the only student from around here going to Bundoora and it will probably take a few weeks to get used to it all.’’
Sarah will be studying human services and social work at La Trobe University in Bendigo.
‘‘Moving to Bendigo and starting something fresh will be a new challenge after being here so long,’’ she said.
‘‘I haven’t thought too much beyond university and will just see where it takes me.’’
Victorian Higher Education and Skills Minister Peter Hall said students who may have missed out on a first round offer should not feel discouraged.
‘‘Firstly, dont panic, there are many more paths to tertiary study than ever before,’’ Mr Hall said.
‘‘There’s a huge range of TAFE and vocational education and training courses that are pathways to higher education studies.
‘‘Many vocational training courses can lead to a university degree, and some are even delivered in partnership with universities to make this transition easier.’’
