The LAUNCH Program offers Year 11 & 12 students the opportunity to study three higher education units through CHC for FREE (before finishing Year 12!).

Various units can be completed online or on the CHC campus. Courses are available across each discipline! Through LAUNCH you can get a taste of what you want to study before you graduate, finish your studies after school sooner, lower your education costs, and ease your admission process!

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 completion of Year 12 (other entry requirements may also apply). If you are accepted into this program, 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 or online 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/online. You do not need to attend any physical classes for external/online 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;
  • We recommend that you are achieving a HA (B) or VHA (A) standard subjects at school. Lower results will still be considered on a case by case basis;
  • 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.

To enrol in a LAUNCH Unit, simply fill out our Online Application Form.

You will need to upload your most recent academic results and a letter of consent from your parents. You may also require a letter of consent from your school (not required for Semester 3 during summer holidays). If you don’t have these documents on hand, feel free to submit your application anyway and we will contact you regarding the documentation we require.

Enquiries about LAUNCH should be directed to: CHC Student Administration
