Seven Shearwater students from Years 11 and 12 have commenced university subjects at Southern Cross, as part of the Head-Start program, which provides an opportunity for Year 11 and 12 students to study alongside first year university students. Students that successfully complete their subjects gain automatic entry into a variety of degree courses at SCU and advanced standing for the subjects they have completed. Our students are currently undertaking units of study in 'Processes and Philosophy of Engineering'; 'Biology'; 'Communication in Organisations' and 'Visual Communication and Design'. Free from university fees, the program offers high-achieving students the chance to gain a taste of university life, stimulate their interest in academic pursuits and enhance their educational performance and long-term aspirations. Shearwater students have had great success at Head-Start in the past and we wish this year's cohort all the best with their studies.
