UNSW Gateway Program

Heathcote High School is an UNSW Gateway Partner School

Heathcote High School has secured a partnership with the University of NSW in their Gateway Admission Pathway and Program (GAPP).

Our students in Years 10, 11 and 12 have access to a range of academic enrichment opportunities that enhance school-based learning and increase preparedness for success in higher education.

Our school is the only school in the Sutherland Shire to have access to this comprehensive program that guides students who are interested in going to university to develop their understanding of future possibilities; begin to map out their path from school to tertiary education and beyond and to understand how to use their learning strengths to navigate their education journey. 

Opportunities include presentation skills workshop run by NIDA, on-campus experiences, on-line resources, leadership program, networking opportunities, HSC subject-specific master classes, academic support, tutoring and personalised mentoring.

As a Gateway Partner School, students will have access to apply for either early entry to UNSW or have a significantly lower ATAR entry requirement for their chosen degree.

After commencing their course at UNSW the support continues in terms of priority for scholarships, access to the Start@UNSW program to support their transition to university, free bridging courses, peer mentoring and additional academic support for some subjects.
