Year 12 students from across Lower Eyre Peninsula have joined their peers from across the state in planning for the future after receiving university and TAFE offers.

The South Australian Tertiary Admission Centre emailed more than 6500 offers to undergraduate courses in the main January offer round on Tuesday.

The recipients followed more than 11,000 who received their offers in earlier rounds from December 30.

St Joseph’s School graduate Isaac Scott is one student university bound in 2019, having received his first preference of Bachelor of Media at Adelaide University in December.

Mr Scott said he was pleased to see he had been accepted into his first preference.

He said most of his friends also got what they wanted as well.

“Most of my mates are moving on to Adelaide so it will be cool to experience a new chapter in our lives together,” he said.

Mr Scott said he was moving to Adelaide on February 22 and would live at Aquinas College as he began his degree.

School returns on January 29 with a new group of year 12 students beginning their journey towards tertiary education or other pursuits.

Mr Scott said his main piece of advice was for students to consult the teachers as much as possible if they needed help.

“I really focused on really trusting my teachers and asking for as much advice as possible,” he said.

Further offers will be emailed out to applicants on January 24 and 31 as well as February 5 and 7 with offers to continue in February and March for courses if places are still available.

In addition to receiving offers by email, university applicants can also check offers online using My Application on the SATAC website.
