University Subject at School

This is a great opportunity for high achieving students to try a university subject while at school. Please contact Mrs Thornton before applying so she can discuss the implications.

SUN is a CQUniversity initiative allowing students in Years 10 – 12 to study CQUni units whilst still in high school. Students can enrol in a range of units on-campus or by distance education, and combine them with their regular high school work.

As of Term 1, 2018 high school students from across Australia will have the opportunity to undertake their first Start Uni Now (SUN) unit at zero cost!*

Try before you buy: Students can choose from over 100 units and try out their subject area of interest before embarking on university study
Lower the cost of study: As well as the opportunity to try the first unit free*, SUN courses are offered at a heavily reduced price compared to normal university fees
Direct entry: After passing at least one relevant SUN unit (and meeting the course prerequisites) students may be eligible for direct entry, skipping the QTAC process
Finish their degree faster: Students may complete up to four units – essentially completing a whole semester before they graduate high school!
Credited towards QCE: Each SUN unit successfully completed can be credited towards their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). Each 6 credit SUN unit is worth 2 QCE credit points.

Term 2 applications close Friday, June 22, 2018.
