STAR courses great for students wanting a challenge

November 9, 2021

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

You can find the list of courses most suitable for STAR students on the pages with course information for 2022.

Talk to your school careers advisor if you are interested in doing a STAR course in 2022.

Applications for Semester 1 courses are due by Friday 11 February 2022
