Trinity College - Australia



Trinity College invites your students to the Young Leaders Programs in December 

The Young Leaders Programs offer students aged between 14 and 17 a taste of residential college and university life, right here in Australia. The Young Leaders Programs are designed to inspire, increase confidence, encourage critical thinking and guide students on a pathway to tertiary education. In December, students can choose one, two or three academic streams – all of which align with the University of Melbourne’s New Generation degrees, to give students an idea of what they might like to study in the future. Young Leaders Programs and Trinity College Foundation Studies work together to prepare students for the best tertiary education at Australia's No.1 ranked university.

In July 2015, a record number of 273 students participated in the Young Leaders Programs across the Arts, Biomedicine, Commerce, Sport Development & Management, New York Jazz Symposium, Fine Arts, Biomedicine, Leadership for Social Justice and English Intensive for International Students Streams. 

December applications are coming in now! Places are limited to 40 per stream and will close when they are at capacity. Do not wait until the closing date as there is a strong chance that you will miss out!
