We work with our students in Years 9 to 11 with the aim to help them 'get university-ready’. To build a curiousity and interest in further education.
Whether by helping you discover a career you had not previously considered, or by honing your discussion skills, we will offer you a headstart when it comes to your future. Below you can read more about some of the opportunities we offer.
