Why become a STAR student? STAR at UC offers keen and capable secondary school students:     

 • a stimulating challenge while they are studying towards University Entrance
 • an opportunity to make a head start on their tertiary degree study 
• the confidence that they have what it takes to succeed in tertiary study.

What can STAR students study by distance at UC? We offer a wide range of courses across these areas:  

 • Economics 

• Education 

• Humanities 

• Languages 

• Mathematics

 • Social Sciences

 • Sport Coaching

What does a STAR course involve? Workload expectations As a general guide, a 15-point course at UC should equate to a workload of about 150 hours. If the course is run over one semester (as opposed to whole-year courses), this is a workload of just over 8 hours a week on average, which will include the time spent on tutorials, reading the online course materials and working on assignments.
