Abstract

The University of Notre Dame Australia’s Vice Chancellor, Dr Peter Tannock officially launched the University’s 2007 Admissions Guide on the Fremantle Campus this month. Principals, careers advisors and senior staff from Government, Catholic and Independent Secondary Colleges attended the launch.

Dr Tannock said that the University has come a long way over the past 14 years. He explained that the Objects of the University were the provision of university education, within a context of Catholic faith and values; and the provision of an excellent standard of - teaching, scholarship and research; training for the professions; and pastoral care for its students.

“We believe that as a result of this commitment to these Objects we have had the good fortune to experience a growth in enrolments at a time when overall demand for tertiary education was on the decline.

“The new admissions process is designed to ensure that we continue to attract high quality applicants. The University’s goal is to have all students graduate,” he said.

The Manager of the Admissions Office, Mrs Rommie Masarei explained that the admissions process for Notre Dame is quite different from the other four Western Australian universities.

“School leavers who apply to Notre Dame are assessed on their personal qualities and motivation to study, their contribution to the community, their academic record and an interview.

“The Admissions Office ensures that all elements of a person’s application are considered, culminating in an interview for every applicant.”
