Situated in the heart of the Mawson Lakes campus of the University of South Australia, our senior school for Years 11 and 12 is dedicated to providing a smooth transition from high school to university. UniSA is one of Australia’s top universities and our students are at the centre of this learning hub. They are surrounded by world-class facilities and qualified, dedicated and engaging teachers.
The academic focus at the Mawson Lakes campus is on information technology, engineering, science, environmental studies and aviation. UniSA’s other campuses specialise in the other disciplines, providing a career path for all student interests. Students who enrol in MLS-UniSA will complete the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) and are able to use results from their Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) to apply to any university in Australia and many others internationally. What’s good to know is that students who successfully complete their SACE at MLS-UniSA are not required to supply evidence of IELTS to satisfy the University’s English requirements for entry; completion of the SACE certificate is sufficient evidence for English language proficiency at UniSA.
Furthermore, our strong partnership with the University of South Australia provides students with many advantages not available to other students. For example, performing MLS students will be able to study, at no cost, two first year courses at the university and count these towards their SACE. On top of this, all our students who complete their SACE and continue on to any UniSA on-shore bachelor program receive a 25% reduction in their university tuition fees each year for up to four years as long as a credit average is maintained.
MLS-UniSA offers, in conjunction with excellent study experiences, a healthy and safe lifestyle where MLS students can select from a variety of uni cafes, sit quietly under trees on green lawns, join in fairs or meet-up in casual student hubs. The Adelaide climate is warm and so are the communities and businesses of Mawson Lakes that surround the university – and all just 15 minutes from the city of Adelaide major shopping precinct.
Just as important, however, is our focus on developing a maturity and an outlook in our students that will prepare them for their lives ahead. We understand that in a matter of months students become adults, so we strive to give them the skills necessary for that transition and to prepare them for the challenges and celebrations that inevitably lie in wait for them.
MLS-UniSA offer three intakes (February, July and September) across two year levels, dependent upon prior study.
