Many girls who studied Year 12 Business Studies, Economics and Legal Studies in 2021 have gone on to university to pursue careers in these areas. The understanding gained from Stage 6 subjects has fueled their desire to study further in these areas.
Here is a small sample of the girls who did well commenting on how their studies at Tara ignited their interest in the commercial, economic and legal worlds.
"I am doing a Bachelor of Law/Commerce at UNSW. Learning about the ongoing legal injustices in our world and the significant ripple effect of business decisions on the social, political and environmental spheres of society inspired me to undertake a double degree." - Dhara N
"I loved the environment in Legal Studies and how interesting the topics were, along with the flexibility of discussion which enriched our learning. Since I loved Legal Studies I’ve decided to pair Law with my Psychology degree and undergo this as my next steps and future path." - Sophia K
"I loved the teachers always making it relevant to the real world and current issues! After studying Economics and Business I am almost certain that the Social Sciences are a field I would love to work in!" - Mary-Claire N
"I studied Legal Studies and Business Studies and it was the best time of my life! I am studying Commerce at UNSW and I hope to major in Marketing or Business Law." - Nikki Z
"I found taking Economics at Tara a wonderful albeit challenging experience, and am still grateful for all the relevant and applicable skills and concepts I learnt as a part of the course." - Evelyn M
"In Business Studies I loved understanding real world concepts and the importance of understanding the business world as a function of everyday life. In Legal Studies I loved discussing the system in which our society is built upon, having lots of debates in class, and the engaging content. Legal Studies definitely inspired me to do the current course I am doing which is Law/Communications UNSW."- Aneesa S
"I studied Business Studies and Economics and I loved learning about Business Finance and all macro topics in economics. I am studying a Bachelor of Business and I plan to major in both Finance and Economics." - Bianca M
"I loved taking Legal Studies as a subject, as it provided me with a wider knowledge on how our society works and how not to break criminal law. Studying Business has been the core inspiration for my tertiary studies, as I’ve continued onto a Business and Innovation degree, to extend on my fascination with marketing developed in my Year 12 studies." - Paris G
"I loved Legal Studies as we were able to share our ideas and thoughts on what we were learning about and therefore learn about different perspectives and incorporate this into our writing, to produce a more rounded response. My passion for learning about current news stories and the way in which the law responds to these emerging issues through law reform inspired me to study a Bachelor of Communications majoring in Journalism, as I found a passion for learning more about current issues within society and having a platform to share this with a widespread audience." - Sophie B
"I found all the Social Sciences interesting at Tara and I found the teaching staff to be very helpful, always giving detailed feedback and information on how to apply and better your results. I am now studying a Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Business Administration at Macquarie University, which I found my passion for through social sciences at Tara." - Jordyn F
"I studied Business Studies, Economics, and Legal Studies whilst at Tara and thoroughly enjoyed these courses. All the resources made accessible, and feedback provided by my teachers really furthered my learning, ultimately allowing me to achieve in the HSC. Inspired by my social science study at Tara, I have now begun a Law and Criminology & Criminal Justice degree at UNSW and thank the department for their guidance." - Mackenzie C
