Kyabram P-12 College students Dylan Coombs, Lainey Heale, Dean Mulcahy and Brad Keath have all received first-round university offers.

A new school year is about to begin at Kyabram P-12 College, but for four of last year’s VCE class, life as a university student is about to begin.

Brad Keath, Dean Mulcahy, Lainey Heale and Dylan Coombs received first-round offers.

Mr Keath was the college’s dux last year, receiving an ATAR score of 96.

This year he will study commerce at Melbourne University, with the hope to become an actuary.

Mr Mulcahy dreams of becoming a property developer.

This year he will study his first preference, a construction management course at RMIT in Melbourne.

He said the course would give him the skills to manage all elements of large-scale construction projects.

Miss Heale received an offer for her second preference, podiatry at Charles Sturt University in Albury.

‘‘I had always wanted a career in health. My first preference was for physiotherapy, but I changed my mind,’’ she said.

Since Year 8, Mr Coombs had set his sights on becoming a health and physical education teacher.

Mr Coombs will begin studying at Federation University at Mount Helen, near Ballarat, this year.
