The Tertiary Access Payment is a scholarship provided by the Federal Government to assist students who completed Year 12 in 2020, with the cost of relocating from an outer regional or remote area for tertiary study.
If you know a high-achieving Year 11 or 12 student who would like to get a taste of university life while in high school, they can apply to take part in START QUT. Applications for Semester 2, 2021 are open 31 March and close on 31 May, 2020.
Students can trial potential study areas, experience the university lifestyle and learn about the differences between high school and university. Students will be part of the student community and attend lectures, tutorials or workshops with other QUT students.
For more information including entry requirements and the full list of all units available for study, visit the START QUT website.
QUT's Young Accelerators program offers on-campus curriculum-mapped STEM workshops, events and teacher professional development sessions that aim to excite and inspire learning by combining STEM with creative learning and entrepreneurship.
