The University of the Sunshine Coast will hold an information evening about its award-winning Headstart program for Year 11 and 12 students at 6pm on Wednesday 5 September.
This program, which has involved more than 800 participants in the past nine years, enables students to undertake one or two university subjects while still in senior high school and gain credit towards a USC degree.
Students are able to choose from 65 subjects, with Indonesian, Journalism and Communication and Thought among the most popular.
The information evening is open to students currently in Years 10 and 11 and their parents. An optional tour of the USC campus will be provided beforehand at 5.15pm.
USC External Relations Manager Kylie Russell said the information event would outline how the Headstart program worked, its costs and course options.
“The biggest advantage of Headstart is that it prepares students for university,” she said.
“This information evening is a great way for them to find out more about USC’s campus, assessments and study workload.
“There will also be two current Headstart students there on the night talking about their own study experiences.”
Bookings are required by registering online or calling 5456 5000.
