HSC University Pathways
Why study the HSC University Pathways at UNE?
Your student or child is one of a select few who may be able to undertake a university unit that supplements their HSC education, and provides advanced standing into a university course of their choice. At UNE this program is unique as it is offered as a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP), meaning that if you are an eligible domestic student you may defer your tuition through HECS-HELP.
The HSC University Pathways is designed for students who have completed an ATAR acceptable subject before starting year 12. UNE offers a range of first year units, which can be completed in the first semester of year, allowing students to focus on their HSC in the latter half of the year.
Below is a list of units students may be eligible for, based on their HSC studies. These units are available in a wide range of university degrees:
AFM101 Introduction to Financial Accounting**
