“Now that I’m more confident in my own ability and what I can do, and I’m able to direct myself, I feel a bit more comfortable going into that University environment” – Cole Pearson, student at Marden Senior College. 

Year 12 is often considered one of the most important years in a young person’s life. Earning an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank) is the most direct path to University for many, which usually comes at the end of your High School life. But for some, it doesn’t quite end up that way.

Whether you didn’t quite get the ATAR you wanted, didn’t make it through Year 12 or even High School itself, Marden Senior College opens up plenty of new doorways. They offer new opportunities for those who could use a more relaxed, yet adult, learning environment, with flexible opportunities. No this isn’t actually just for young people, but those of any age.

So what do you do if you want to get back into education? Wavelength sat down to chat with Stephen Inglis, Principal at Marden Senior College, and Cole Pearson, a student at the college, about how education here can be beneficial.
