The SATAC University Application Deadline is 30 September for Equal Consideration.

Any Year 12 student contemplating a university pathway in 2023 (or even to defer and take up in 2024) should register a SATAC Application by 30 September.  Once students have an eight digit SATAC registration number, they have the ability to add further preferences, change the order, or even delete preferences through to 4 January 2023.

There are a few exceptions where course applications close before 4 January.

30 September:           Final closing date for Medicine, Dental Surgery, Oral Health and Veterinary Bioscience at the University of Adelaide.

30 September:           Final closing date for Year 11 Flinders Grade Scheme.

28 November:            Final closing Date for Creative Arts Drama at Flinders.

1 December:              Final closing date for Medicine at Flinders.

Please note that almost all courses are flagged with a statement that they may close and not accept new applications after 1 December 2022. It is important that all preferences you may be considering are amongst your preferences by those dates. Click here for more information.

Students needing help with their applications should book in at the LEC desk for an appointment with one of the Career Counsellors. We remind students that there is a comprehensive PowerPoint on the Careers and VET Portal on SEQTA. Look under Important Info: Career Presentations Year 12 Student SATAC Presentation. It explains the application process, complete with video links.


The Flinders Year 11 Grade Admission Pathway application deadline is 30 September for both SATAC Application and Flinders application on the Flinders Website.

A reminder that Flinders base their considerations on the best five Year 11 subject grades, and students just need to satisfy SACE* and any prerequisite and application requirements to take up a Conditional Offer.  Another difference with the University of Adelaide scheme is that the grades can go to a minimum of three B grades and C grades for some courses. Your ‘eligible’ Flinders University preference needs to be your first preference by 30 September 5:00 pm. It can be changed in preference position after that.

*Note: A minimum ATAR of 70 is required for all Education/Teaching courses even under the Year 11 Grade Scheme.
