There are many online resources available to support students in obtaining career information and reflect on their skills, abilities and aptitudes.

NASSSA has a Career Tools website which can be accessed HERE.

NASSSA Career Tools

We strongly encourage students to have conversations with their school's CAREER COUNSELLOR to discuss their needs [see sample "Needs Assessment Survey"]

Find top tips for young people. Resources contain information, contacts and activities to help students make a successful transition from school into tertiary study, work or post school programs. Some resources target Aboriginal students or others for students with a disability - all are useful for any students!


What should I study?

The "What should I study", University Project Team, are pleased to share their project results, in the report, What Should I Study? Project Outcomes and Recommendations.

Over the past two years the team has been conducting research to gain a better understanding of the ways in which Year 12 students in South Australia decide what to study at university, and how they are supported. The project, which was funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training, is now complete.

Thank you to all who participated directly, supported data collection activities, or who showed interest and support for the research. [NASSSA is mentioned as a supporter of this project, in the report]

A copy of this report and other project outcomes is available at . Feedback and/or comments are welcome at
