University and Careers

Philosophy

The University & Careers Education program at Redlands is focused on providing each student with the tools, knowledge and self-awareness to make the best possible decisions about their future post school. We aim to empower students to take responsibility and ownership of their tertiary education.

Services

The University & Careers Education program begins in Year 9 and continues after students have left the school. A wide range of services are offered to students and a wide range of resources are available for students to use or borrow from the University & Careers Office.

Some of the key services offered are:

  • Comprehensive career assessment incorporating a feedback interview and follow-up research workbook
  • Individual consultations (mandatory in Year 11)
  • Regular Year Group Career Meetings
  • Resume and Work Experience preparation
  • University field trips

  • Guest speakers from universities, industry and alumni
  • University (Australia and overseas) applications preparation including test preparation advice, personal statement/essay reviews, scholarship application advice, transcript preparation and management of the reference process
  • Gap year and summer programs advice

Events

The University & Careers office works with the Alumni office to host Careers events for current students.
The annual ‘Study in the USA’ event attracts students from all over NSW.
