Congratulations to Jake McCallum (Year 12) for his early entry into the Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) at Australian National University (ANU).
This course is pitched to students who are in the 99.95 ATAR range. Jake was also successful for a $6500 scholarship to support his studies in the first year.
Where is ANU:
ANU is a world-leading university in Australia's capital (Canberra). Excellence is embedded in their approach to research and education.
About the course:
ANU encourages students to inspire their curious mind with the Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours).
There's no other degree like it in Australia. Students get to explore their interests by undertaking research as an undergraduate student, get one-on-one mentoring by leading academics… all while enjoying the camaraderie of a group of like-minded students.
The research undertaken throughout the degree is excellent preparation for the fourth, or Honours year of the PhB. Students undertake a year-long research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor. This is where students can really indulge your passion and explore a topic in detail.
Many ANU graduates have used the PhB program as a pathway to completing PhDs in some of the best universities around the world, such as Cambridge, Oxford, Yale, UC Berkley and, of course, ANU.
The PhB can also provide a pathway to the Doctor of Medicine and Surgery (MChD) without having to sit the GAMSAT. Each year, 10 places are reserved in ANU's medicine program for students who successfully graduate from the PhB program and undertake a successful interview.
Well done, Jake! SCCC is very proud of you and we wish you well for the future.
