High Achiever Program

Through this program, the University of Tasmania enriches the educational opportunities for high-achieving students and develops links between the University, the students and their schools and colleges.

As well as providing students with academic challenge and the change to experience University life, the High Achiever Program offers a number of other benefits including:

  • Subsidised course costs
  • Credit towards a UTAS Degree
  • Counting units towards the ATAR
  • Access to facilities and support services

The High Achiever Program applications open in September with on-time applications closing on 20 December 2015. Supporting documentation will be accepted until mid January and every effort will be made to approve and process applications as early as possible.
