The choice you make after high school is likely to be the first life-changing decision you'll make.
That choice is usually made up of two questions:
'What do I want to study?' & 'Where do I want to study?'
If you're feeling like there must be other options out there than the major two or three local unis then this event is for you!
Hear from Australian students who have just been offered a place at three of the top colleges in the US...
University of Pennsylvania - tied at #8 by US News, UPenn is an Ivy League college known for its world-leading business school and a culture of student internships.

By the end of this event, you'll come away knowing why Australian students are choosing US Colleges over local universities and how to work towards your own journey overseas!
Chris Z. - University of Pennsylvania Class of 2023
"Hi everyone! My name is Chris. When I started thinking about what I wanted to study after school, I just couldn't find one course that grabbed my attention within Australia. For this reason, I started looking at American colleges in early Year 11 and was really interested in the multifaceted approach they took to broad ranging degrees within a liberal arts and sciences college. I discovered that I could test the water with a range of interesting subjects in my first two years before having to decide on a major. The application process initially appeared to me as a lot less complex than it became, but I am very happy I stuck it out. I am (super excited) to head over to UPenn in August to study logic, information and computation. I look forward to meeting you all and hopefully giving some insight into any questions you may have. See you there!"
Allie B. - Duke University Class of 2023
“Hi, I’m Allie! I’ve recently graduated from Abbotsleigh in Sydney and have been accepted in Duke University to study Political Science. I’ve wanted to study in the states from a young age, attracted by the amazing both academic and personal opportunities that college in America offers. I’m excited to chat to you all and provide some advice that I hope you’ll find valuable!”
Max S. - University of Chicago Class of 2023
"Hey! My name's Max and I'm really keen to start at UChicago this year. At the moment I'd be looking to study Physics or Literature, although after two years of the Core Curriculum I'm sure I'll have even more passions to pursue. While my admissions journey was certainly less than ideal--I was in the Gold Coast doing my ACT's days before the modern history HSC exam--I'm so glad I chose to do it, and all the stress involved was validated once I opened the admissions letter. Hopefully I'll be able to share some helpful advice I wish I had going into US applications. See you all there!"
