What could Head Start lead to?

Completing a course through the Head Start program allows you to gain entry into a related USQ Degree provided you have also met the program pre-requisites

You can also gain academic credit for the courses you pass, which means you will have fewer courses to study when you start your degree. Make sure you check out the enrolment pattern for your desired degree to ensure this.
