The STAR Programme allows secondary school students from anywhere in New Zealand to enrol in first-year degree-level courses while they are in Year 12 or 13. UC offers both on-campus and distance courses.
Once students meet University Entrance they can credit STAR courses they have successfully completed towards a relevant degree at UC and often at other universities too.
Why be a part of the STAR Programme?
The STAR Programme offers keen and capable students:
- a stimulating challenge
- an opportunity to make a head start on their tertiary degree study
- the confidence that they have what it takes to succeed in tertiary study
- an opportunity to connect with like-minded secondary school students
