THE long-awaited celebrations for hundreds of Toowoomba high school graduates will begin today when they find out whether they have been offered tertiary places.

Successful applicants need to respond to their offers before the January 25 due date in order to secure their place.

This year more\ 59,000 tertiary aspirants applied to QTAC for Semester 1 entry to universities, TAFE or colleges in Queensland, northern New South Wales and Tasmania.

Applicants can find out if they have been offered a place at 1am today by visiting QTAC's Current Applicant online service at www.qtac.edu.au.

The most popular area of study this year, based on applicants' first preferences for Semester 1 entry, was in health (which includes nursing and specialist health professions) followed by society and culture (which includes psychology, history and law).

Study areas showing the biggest percentage increase in applicant popularity included information technology, agriculture and environment, and engineering.

QTAC manager public relations and information services Pat Smith said there was still time for people to consider their options and lodge an application for courses commencing in either first or second semester.

The QTAC website provides information on courses still open for new applications and changes of preference.
