Summer School at UC

Posted on November 3, 2020

Headstart summer school courses are designed for newcomers to university study who want to be confident that their skills and knowledge are suitable for 1st year.

Headstart runs over the summer from 5 January to 12 February 2021.

If you qualify for University Entrance, but plan on studying a subject you are not confident in, or if you have been away from study for a while, then the Headstart pre-university catch up programme may be for you.

Mathematics is an important subject if you intend to major in Engineering, Commerce, or any of the sciences including Health Sciences, Psychology or Forestry.

Physics and/or chemistry are key subjects if you intend to major in the Physical Sciences, Biochemistry or Engineering.

Headstart courses are designed to prepare students for 100-level study at UC. While the science courses are very likely to be helpful for Health Sciences or Veterinary Science at other universities, it is not guaranteed that they will be entirely suitable preparation.

Headstart courses do not contribute credit points towards a degree.
