USQ Head Start subjects are available to students in Years 11 and 12. Head Start subjects run for one semester, although students can elect to study additional subjects in subsequent semesters. While many of the units are available externally, USQ's location in Toowoomba makes it ideal for students to study on-campus.
The advantages of completing a USQ Headstart subject include:
To gain entry to the Head Start Program, students must have a B average on their latest report card. USQ recommends that Head Start students allocate 10 hours per week of study time to their subject.
