Grace secures her dream degree with an Early Offer

For Grace, receiving an Early Offer from Notre Dame secured a place in her dream degree (teaching) and reduced the pressure surrounding WACE exams.

“Even though I had my place already, I was really motivated to show I was worthy of having the Early Offer,” Grace says. “I could focus on my studies and Year 12 was much less stressful.”

Grace says it was Notre Dame's School of Education’s stellar reputation – renowned for high levels of practical experience, small class sizes and job-ready graduates – that made her apply for an Early Offer.

“The culture of Notre Dame is incredible – I love feeling like I’m in such a community. With the small class sizes it’s so easy to meet people and I’ve made good relationships with my tutors and lecturers.”

With Notre Dame’s focus on developing critical thinking skills to create future-proof graduates, Grace says she has learnt how to approach different issues and see the world from different perspectives – essential skills for teachers.

The tutorials help you develop your critical thinking skills – you can’t just base all your answers off a textbook – we’re taught to apply our knowledge and understanding to real-world scenarios.
