Hear how Heather's daughter, Ellie secured an early offer to Western with HSC True Reward.

Our HSC True Reward early offer program will give school leavers much-needed peace of mind, offering students entry into university based on their Year 11* or Year 12 results. Ensure COVID-19 doesn’t derail your child’s hard work in preparing for their HSC.
