Redefining Admission Strategies
|Event Date/Time: Aug 21, 2012|
Whilst the new higher education system is demand driven, it comes in the context of distinct equity targets.
In response to the removal of caps for undergraduate places, a 2012 analysis of admissions data has found significant declines in ATARs. The lowering of entry scores has ignited much debate over quality and whether the ATAR is the best predictor of success.
The transition to deregulation signifies a transformation for the sector and the ways in which providers attract, enrol and retain students. With increasingly diverse student populations and heightened competition, the process of attracting applicants, assessing aptitude and making offers is rapidly changing.
A demand-driven system coupled with clear access targets, highlights the importance of ensuring admission and retention are jointly managed. This conference will examine how to successfully manage selection and recruitment to boost completion rates.
