Year 12 is a time of great uncertainty, curiosity and discovery. As year 12 students approach the final chapters of their high school life they must decide what career path they want to pursue. As university students, we understand these difficulties as we have been in those exact shoes. This is where the HSC and Beyond program comes in.
VSA NSW held its inaugural HSC and Beyond program on the 1st of July – a one day peer mentoring program where students could ask the questions about university and the HSC they were most curious about. In turn, we offered advice that we wish we were given back when we were in high school. Throughout the day there were HSC Tips-and-Tricks Workshops where mentors who were successful in the HSC passed on their handy study tips. Mentors offered their honest and personal insights into what life was like after high school through the Q&A Careers Panel.
The day gave high school students a rare opportunity for them to interact with university students and also to network and meet people from different high schools.
Thank you to everyone who attended the HSC and Beyond program!
