LATEST NEWS ? project u is a resource to help students work out their post-school options.
WHAT IS PROJECT U? project u is a unique outreach project aimed at high school students from disadvantaged backgrounds to consider university as one of their post-school options.
WHAT'S IN IT? We surveyed current high school students from Years 10, 11 and 12 to ask them why they don’t think that university is within their reach. There were many fears, concerns and misconceptions. Then we talked to current university students about how they handled the key decision-making milestones in their lives, overcoming obstacles, and busting myths.
PARENTS' VIEWS. Many parents and young people share the same concerns, and 'project u' will help to answer your questions. For example, uni students discuss the concern that university is financially out of reach, and talk about scholarships, part-time work, and how they make ends meet.
Have a look at the teen bedroom section for more about this and other issues. Better still, hear from other parents (click on 'play movie'), just like you, talking about their ideas and advice.
