The wait is over for more than 12,200 South Australian students who will receive a first round undergraduate university offer today.

More than 10,300 of these undergraduate places have been offered to school leavers.

This latest intake brings the total number of undergraduate courses offered in SA in 2023 to more than 16,000. SATAC will make another round of offers on 25 January subject to course availability.

Students can check if they have been offered a place via the SATAC website and successful applicants will also be emailed the details of their course.

Health sciences remain extremely popular in SA followed by the social sciences.

The State Government commends the hard work of all the 2022 Year 12 students and wishes them well in their vocational and academic pursuits.

Students who did not receive a first round offer should not be disheartened with further rounds to come and a plethora of pathways into study available to them.

Economic growth and job creation is an overriding priority for the Malinauskas government and skills and education are integral to this.

And that is why we are investing in every stage of our children’s education.

We want to set all young people and our state up for success, a journey which begins at birth and continues all the way through to higher education and entry into the workforce.

It’s why we committed to the provision of three-year-old preschool, 400 university scholarships to attract a diverse and strong teaching cohort to the profession, and Fee-Free TAFE.

The Malinauskas government’s Fee-Free TAFE initiative contributed to a record breaking 9,100 South Australian students receiving SATAC offers from TAFE SA earlier this week.


Attributable to Susan Close

Awaiting a university offer can be a really anxious yet exciting time for a young person and I’m sure there are many excited South Australian families this morning.

One of my own children completed Year 12 last year so I understand how important today is for many students and their families.

Congratulations to all students who’ve just completed Year 12 and have applied for university and TAFE places, as well as those going straight into employment.

For those students that didn’t get offered the place they wanted, be assured there are many pathways into study and employment, and I encourage you to keep pursuing the career or vocation you want.
