We want to engage and challenge passionate learners, so they can excel in their area of talent. Our senior students have the opportunity to pursue subjects offered externally from the Australian National University and the University of Canberra to accelerate their future pathways.

ANU Extension Program

These courses are a collaboration between Australian universities and the Board of Senior Secondary Studies. Students undertaking these courses gain access to university resources including libraries, computer systems and cutting-edge facilities. The results from these courses can be counted for the calculation of Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) scores. Students who complete university courses at an appropriate level may be given early entry to university and may gain credit towards their studies at university in each of the courses completed.

Students who successfully complete studies in ANU Extension will receive an early offer of entry into an ANU bachelor degree program and may receive six (6) credit points towards their bachelor degree for the work completed in ANU Extension.

University of Canberra Accelerated Pathways Program

Studying an H Course in the University of Canberra Accelerated Pathways Program gives ACT Year 11-12 students access to the library, computer systems, and modern learning facilities at UC. Entry to this program is by written application and interview, and is based on learner attributes and interest in a subject area. Students attend one two-hour class per week on campus, during ACT school term time (Wednesday afternoons from 4:45-6:45pm). Successful completion of an H Course will contribute to the Year 12 Senior Secondary Certificate and can form part of the ATAR calculation.

Students who are successful in their H Course studies are eligible for early entry offers into UC and can receive credit towards a UC undergraduate course.
