What to expect

When you enrol in Headstart, you become a university student. You will find new and exciting opportunities and challenge as you experience university study first-hand. You can expect to:

  • meet and study alongside other USC undergraduate students
  • be independent and responsible for your own attendance and assessment
  • attend lectures and tutorials on campus
  • have full use of the university’s facilities and support services
  • complete assessment tasks which may include written assignments, oral presentations, group projects or exams

Study at university is quite different to study at school. University can be academically challenging, but almost one-third of Headstart students receive a high distinction or distinction for their university work.

  • Your commitments
  • USC's commitment to you
  • Your school's commitments
