Senior school students can try university early

6 Mar 2019

High school students interested in gaining an early start to university can attend a free Headstart information evening at USC’s Sunshine Coast campus on Thursday 21 March.

The Headstart program gives students in Years 11 and 12 the opportunity to study up to two subjects on campus to try out a future career or learn subjects not offered at their schools.

The event at Sippy Downs from 4.30pm to 6pm will provide information to students from Years 10, 11 and 12, as well as their parents and school staff.

Also attending will be previous Headstart participants, such as former Maroochydore State High School student Jessica Bettega who last year graduated from USC with an Animal Ecology degree.

USC staff will provide information on the University’s expansion, including the opening of USC Moreton Bay in 2020, and quick tips for parents about how to support their children through Headstart subjects and senior schooling.

To register and for more details go to Headstart information evening.
