Head Start

The University of Southern Queensland's Head Start Program is the most popular choice for our students.
The advantages of completing a USQ Head Start subject include:

  • The first subject studied through the Head Start Program is tuition-fee free. The only financial cost to students is transport and textbooks.
  • Students are able to get a taste for both university life and the field of study which they are considering pursuing. While many of the units are available externally, USQ's location in Toowoomba makes it ideal for students to study on-campus.
  • Successfully completing a USQ Head Start course provides many advantages including entry into a related USQ Degree, provided that additional entry requirements for the degree are met. These may include subject pre-requisites, auditions or other program specific requirements. Students will need to apply through QTAC and list the Head Start Course they completed.
  • To gain entry to the Head Start Program, students must have a B average on their latest Semester Report Card. USQ recommends that Head Start students allocate 10 hours per week of study time to their subject.
