The ANU has the big news about their plans for an extension diploma for chosen year 11 and 12 students:
The ACT region’s best and brightest senior secondary students will get a head start on university study with the launch of the ANU Extension Diploma of Advanced Studies today.
Year 11 and 12 students will be able to attend ANU at the same time as completing school, and will get academic credit for completed subjects.
The ‘Extension Diploma’ will provide a university pathway for high performing students when it starts up in 2014. It will give up to 240 year 11 and 12 students each year the chance to study subjects in the national priority areas of maths, science, languages and Asian Studies at ANU, alongside their senior secondary school work.
At the end of year 12, students will be able to transfer straight into a degree with full credit for the university subjects completed.
