Semester 2, Outlook
Admissions continues to focus on second semester applications. The main
"pressure" point has been international undergraduates and impact on
Accommodation. As at yesterday we have 52 undergraduates who have
accepted their offer (i.e. paid a deposit). Last year we enrolled in
total around 149 international undergraduates into ANU in semester 2.
We currently have around 80 unresolved international undergraduate
applications, most of those are CBE applicants. Applications for
students coming from Category 3 & 4 countries like China and India are
now closed. Applications for category 1 & 2 countries close 20 June. We
are noticing now a slow down of applicants.
On the domestic undergraduate front, Admissions staff will be meeting
with College Student Administration Managers and Statistical Services
staff next week to discuss strategy on UAC applicants for semester 2.
The UAC offer process commences soon with offers being made around 30
On the graduate research front for semester 2, International Research
applications and offers and acceptances are higher than same day last
year (i.e. 2 June). There are 14 who have accepted their offer compared
with 11 on the same day last year. In total second half of last year we
had a total of 66 international research students commence. So at this
stage you could (very cautiously) predict similar numbers this year.
I'll highlight the very cautious!! It is not as positive an outlook for
domestic research students. Number of applications is down when compared
with the same day last year and there have only been 10 offers made to
date. I will say it's really early days for research students because
they have until 31 August to enrol. Last year in the second half of the
year around 63 domestic research students enrolled.
On the graduate coursework front for semester 2, Domestic offers as at 2
June total 57 compared with 39 on same day last year. We enrolled around
261 graduate coursework students semester 2, 2007 and we know domestic
applications typically come in closer to commencement dates.
International offers total 634 compared with 477 same day last year. 35
have accepted as at 2 June. That is significantly down on same day last
year. International coursework enrolments semester 2, last year were
I hope this provides a useful outlook for semester 2 so far. We have
provided individual College data to Student Administration Managers and
will do so again next week.
We have completed looking at all the mid year potential graduands for
We are in the process of organising the bricks for semester two so an
email will be going out in the next week about brick information for
semester two. If you are aware of staff in your area who should be
receiving this information but may not be on our list of contacts ask
them to get in touch with us and we can add them on. Brick payments will
be taken at the MCC from 17 July 2008 to the 1 August 2008 inclusive We
should note that a number of Colleges are now utilising the Coop
Bookshop, Electronic Methods and other methods and we encourage use of
those alternative sources.
Semester two fees will appear on the students accounts by the end of
June and invoices will start to go the students email account after the
7 July 2008. If you are aware of any students who are experiencing
problems with paying their fees please encourage them to contact us
immediately as it is much better for us to know there is a problem
before the due date rather than after. The due date for semester two fee
will be Friday the 8 August 2008.
