LAUNCH PROGRAM

CHC’s LAUNCH program offers Year 11 & 12 students the opportunity to experience life as a CHC student.

Participants can study up to three units (subjects) during Years 11 and 12 (a maximum of one unit per semester) and the units that you successfully complete may count towards your QCE.

The LAUNCH program is designed as a pathway of admission to your higher education studies. When you successfully complete a LAUNCH unit, you automatically meet the academic entry requirements for admission to the related undergraduate course following your completion of Year 12 (other entry requirements may also apply). If you are accepted into this course, you will also receive credit towards your degree for the related LAUNCH unit(s) you have successfully completed.

As a LAUNCH student, you will be part of a class of first-year CHC undergraduate students. The LAUNCH program is normally offered outside of school hours, and you will need to attend all of the required classes for the unit. LAUNCH units normally require three hours of on-campus contact per week and it is recommended that you undertake an additional seven hours of personal study each week (a total of 10 hours per week).

Some LAUNCH units are available externally. You do not need to attend any classes for external units, but you need to engage in the learning materials for approximately ten hours per week via the Moodle learning platform.

Just remember that these commitments are on top of your Year 11 and/or Year 12 study program.

You are eligible to apply for the LAUNCH program if:

  • You are currently in Year 11 or 12;
  • You are achieving A and/or B results for your subjects at school; and
  • You have the support of your school and your parents/guardians

Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA):

For  students completing the Queensland Certificate of Education, CHC is required to inform the Queensland Studies Authority of students enrolled in the LAUNCH program and their resulting grades. This is for recording on the Queensland Certificate of Education. A LAUNCH unit is recorded as two credits of Advanced courses of study – it does not count towards your OP.

Enquiries about LAUNCH should be directed to: CHC Student Administration
