A wealth of Wagga year 12 students have taken advantage of Charles Sturt University's first round of early entry offers, with 112 places offered to Wagga students ahead of their final HSC exams.
The offers are through CSU's Advantage program, which take into account consideration of qualities such as a persons academic competence, including year 11 results and communication skills, to determine the success of a person as a student and in the workforce.
The second round of the program has now opened, giving further local students a chance to secure an early place at the university for next year.
Mater Dei Catholic College and The Riverina Anglican College both had 27 students receive offers from the first round, Kildcare Catholic College and Wagga High School had 22 students, and Kooringal High School had 14 offers.
Karen Murray, the careers advisor at Kildare Catholic College said the 27 students offered entry at CSU are delighted.
"Overall, my students are very happy. We had a very high percentage of Kildcare students who applied and received offers," Ms Murray said.
