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 tomorrow (Wednesday 14 March).
The Headstart program, which has attracted more than 700 participants in the past nine years, enables students to undertake one or two university subjects while still in senior high school.
Students are able to choose from more than 90 courses – including Indonesian language, psychology, creative writing, communication and digital photography – and gain credit towards a USC degree.
The information evening is open to students in Years 10-12 and their parents.
They can also join an optional tour of the USC campus beforehand at 5.15pm.
USC’s External Relations Officer Tegan McFarland said the event would outline how the Headstart program works, its costs and course options.
Bookings are required by registering online or calling 5456 5000.
