SUN shines across WA, creating fresh options for school students

CQUniversity’s Start Uni Now (SUN) program has been given the green light by the Board of the School Curriculum and Standards Authority in Western Australia.

The recent endorsement means that senior secondary school students undertaking units in the CQUniversity program from Term 2, 2018 will now be able to count the learning towards their Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE).

CQUniversity Associate Vice-Chancellor Western Australia Professor Trevor Davison said he was thrilled at receiving the recent news.

“It’s been a lengthy process, as expected for something of this magnitude, but the result is wonderful and I can’t thank the Authority enough for their support in endorsing the units,” Professor Davison said.

“The School Curriculum and Standards Authority has endorsed CQUniversity’s SUN-specific study units meaning students who complete the units with us will now have their achievement reported on their WA Statement of Student Achievement.

“The endorsement also means that CQUniversity WA will be able to provide future students with another opportunity to engage with us.”

The eight SUN units that have been endorsed are Introduction to Nursing, Current Trends in Psychology, Education as a Profession, Introduction to Business, Foundations of Business Law, and Introduction to Law and Basic Aeronautical Knowledge.
