University College Programs – Languages
Students in Year 12 who are studying a second language (German, French, Japanese or Chinese) have the opportunity to take a University College Program (UCP) course with the University of Tasmania (UTAS).
The courses consist of a series of six workshops, held once a month, beginning in March.
These courses are free, 100% HECS/HELP free and a successful pass will gain the student 25% credit towards a general university diploma if they choose to study at UTAS. This is also a great way for students to get a taste of university life and it gives them the chance to meet other, like-minded students.
From 2018 it will be compulsory to have completed this course in order to gain admission to the High Achiever Program (HAP).
