STAR Arts Courses

© Restricted/University of Canterbury

The Faculty of Arts offers first-year courses to talented secondary school students.

What is the STAR programme?

The STAR programme offers capable senior secondary school students the opportunity to enrol in first-year degree-level courses at UC while still at school. It is a chance to experience what it's like studying at university, get a headstart on tertiary studies, and meet with other like-minded secondary school students.

Both on-campus and distance courses are offered, and completed STAR courses can normally be credited towards a university degree once the student has achieved University Entrance.
