Experience USC

Experience USC is an exclusive day for Year 10 students to explore a range of career paths, speak with academics and current USC students and experience what uni life is like. To ensure the event is COVID safe, Experience USC will run differently this year with fewer streams, but more opportunity to engage in an array of different study areas and careers. Students will leave the day feeling inspired, informed, and motivated about their future.

The experience of the day will better prepare students for SET planning, so they can develop their understanding of how their high school studies and subjects will support their journey to university and create opportunities to future career pathways.

Experience USC is a highly sought after event that’s not to be missed!
