Close to 100 high school students have spent the past six months getting a head start on their future university degrees. The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) Head Start program offers high-achieving Year 11 and 12 students the chance to undertake university study while finishing high school. A group of successful Head Start graduates were celebrated on 28 August, with 30 receiving their certificates at the USQ Toowoomba Refectory. The USQ Head Start is an academic extension program where students can study one university subject during a semester, allowing them to get a head start on their university studies. This program will allow students to gain entry into a related USQ degree straight out of high school.
