Want to get a HEADSTART on uni?
The University of Adelaide’s Headstart scholarship program gives high achieving students the opportunity to study at university while still in Year 12, and have these university studies count towards their SACE and ATAR.
While studying at the University part-time Headstart students not only have the opportunity to find out what university life is like before they even finish school, but also contribute to, and benefit from, the diverse cultural and intellectual life of the University of Adelaide.
Headstart provides gifted and highly-motivated students with a challenge beyond the Year 12 curriculum and the chance to grow as individuals as they combine secondary school and university studies.
Headstart students can choose to replace or supplement their Year 12 subjects with university courses (subjects). Their university grades are recorded, and students are able to credit these grades towards their SACE Stage 2 level studies and ATAR. Headstart students may also receive credit towards their degree studies if they enrol in a University of Adelaide program after high school, enabling them to complete their program of study early or study a wider range of courses than usual.
The 2017 Headstart brochure is available here. Please note that a 2018 Headstart brochure will be available from early-mid September.
Successful Headstart applicants will receive a scholarship exempting them from both tuition fees and the Student Services and Amenities fee for up to 12 units of first-year university study, which is equivalent to two courses per semester.
|Semester 1 closing date:||Monday 5 February 2018|
|Semester 2 closing date:||Monday 9 July 2018|
Further information about the scheme is available from the Office of Academic and Student Engagement.
