Early Offer Program

Change your perspective with an early offer from Notre Dame

At Notre Dame we know that you need to change your perspective to change the world. That's why philosophy and ethics play such essential roles in every Notre Dame degree. You learn to explore other views before arriving at your own. We challenge you to question everything, to separate real news from fake news, truth from lies and to distinguish information from knowledge.

At Notre Dame you are empowered with the fundamentals of critical thinking – lifelong skills to navigate an uncertain future.

For your chance to secure a university education of a lifetime – before you sit your year 12 exams – apply for an early offer.  This exclusive program is open to Year 12 students who have demonstrated academic excellence and/or are making a significant contribution to their school or community.

An early offer takes the pressure off, you can sit your Year 12 exams with added confidence. It’s also a great way for schools to acknowledge their outstanding students.

Applications for an early offer to study in Semester 1, 2020 are due 31 July 2019. Good luck!
