“You learn what it’s like to be at uni and pretty much going to uni – it’s fun.”

What is Headstart?

Headstart is a transition program for Year 11 and 12 students to study USC courses while still completing high school.

Get a taste of university life and prepare for future study while working towards a USC degree, expanding your knowledge, and interacting with university staff and students.
