The STAR at UC programme allows secondary school students from anywhere in New Zealand to enrol in first-year degree-level courses while they are in Year 12 or 13.
The STAR at UC Programme offers keen and capable students a stimulating challenge, an opportunity to make a head start on their tertiary degree study, the confidence that they have what it takes to succeed in tertiary study, and an opportunity to connect with like-minded secondary school students. Once the students achieve University Entrance they can credit courses they have successfully completed towards a relevant degree at UC and usually at other universities too. In 2017 UC had over 290 STAR students enrolled from 99 secondary schools around New Zealand.
