ANU Tuckwell Scholarship - Application Process Commences March 2020 for Year 12 Students (Current Year 11)

Tuckwell Scholarship

Australian National University (ANU) launched the Tuckwell Scholarship Program in 2013.   The Tuckwell Scholarship Program at the ANU is the most transformational undergraduate scholarship program in Australia.  A Tuckwell is not just about a students’ intellect.  It is also about their desire and determination to use their natural abilities to realise their full potential so that they can make a difference in the world.  All up one could say, this is no ordinary scholarship!

So, Tuckwell Scholar students will receive:
 

  • $21,850 per annum (2019 rate) (increasing with inflation) for each year of the length of their undergraduate degree, to cover on-campus residential costs, books and general living expenses
  • priority access guaranteed to ANU-approved student accommodation
  • an annual allowance of up to $2,000 to assist with their move to Canberra and to support two annual return journeys (e.g. airfares) between their home and the University for each year of their degree. The allowance will be dependent on the proximity of their family home to ANU.
  • a domestic economy return airfare, or other transport costs, for their parents to visit at the start of the program, and
  • an ANU Sports Centre membership for the length of their degree.

Scholarships are awarded based on four criteria:

Applying for a Tuckwell Scholarship is a three-stage process which commences with an initial application from yourself and a recommendation from a school teacher. 

Applications will begin in March 2020.

Free iCanMed 3-Hr UCAT Workshop - How to Score 3000+ (96th percentile) on the UCAT Exam

Dear Year 11 Students,

If you are planning to sit the UCAT next year this workshop will address all the must-know information you need to effectively prepare. If you want to receive the insights, experience and expertise that will help you get ahead of the competition, this is a workshop that you cannot afford to miss.

Overview:

Medical and dental schools are continually finding new ways to identify the candidates who are most likely to become successful health professionals in the future. The UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test) is the latest addition to the selection process used by thirteen universities in Australia and New Zealand. Some universities weight your UCAT score just as heavily as your ATAR when deciding on final offers, while others won’t even give you an interview offer unless you achieved a UCAT score in the top 10% of the cohort. This means that doing well in the UCAT is a make-or-break for prospective candidates.

In this 3-hour workshop, we will:

  • Discuss the methods/formulas that medical and dental schools use to select top candidates
  • Highlight all of the critical mistakes that students made when preparing for and sitting the 2019 UCAT
  • Offer game-changing strategies that helped almost 400 iCanMed students score 3000+ (96th percentile or above) on the 2019 UCAT
  • Sit a mini mock exam that contains questions with the same difficulty, format and style as those found in the official 2019 UCAT
  • Teach the correct methods to solve major Section 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 question types, with a focus on achieving top speeds without compromising accuracy

Limited seats per stream (all streams cover the same content)
