.. University Information
Information regarding open days at NSW universities is available in the current UAC news (go to www.uac.edu.au then to undergraduate/publications/download). Also in the current UAC news are key dates for applications. 2014 UAC Guides will be available early in term 3 with the closing date for applications being 27th September. A very useful site for university information is available at www.myfuture.edu.au This site covers all Australian universities and has links to all courses.
