To be eligible for the program, you need to demonstrate very high levels of academic performance in senior secondary education. As an example, you would normally be expected to be enrolled in Year 12 and have completed three or more Level 3 subjects in Year 11, with EA - Exceptional Achievement demonstrated in school/college reports and TE scores.
The University will consider applications from Year 11 students who show exceptional academic achievement, as well as the maturity to balance university experience with TCE study. The judgement of the principal in regard to the individual student's capacity will be taken into account in determining eligibility.
Some University units have specific entry requirements. If you apply for entry to the High Achiever Program you should consider carefully your overall study demands in the TCE/IB in relation to proposed university units before confirming your enrolment. It is also important that you are aware of the University's timetable for your planned HAP unit before confirming your enrolment with the University.
Note: International students on a student visa may only enrol in units by distance study mode if they are also enrolled in units on campus, and may only study 25% of their total course by distance study mode. International students who wish to study wholly by distance may only do so if they are studying in a country other than Australia, or if they are in Australia on a visa other than a student visa.
- For International students in addition to any costs for textbooks/stationery, there are course fees and for the 2014 HAP Program the set fee for all units is $1200. For more information on how to apply, please see the International Students page.
