Students on CDU campus

Year 11 students

In Year 11, you start developing good study / work habits like time management, self-motivation, organisation and a balanced lifestyle. These habits will be useful in Year 12 and for the rest of your life.

If you're thinking about going to university, pay attention to your subject selection. Speak to your career adviser about assumed knowledge or prerequisites for university courses.

At CDU, you will have opportunities to participate in several events on campus where you can speak with staff and students about life as a CDU student.

VET for Secondary Schools (VSS)

VSS helps you develop job-ready skills while completing high school. CDU offers a range of VET programs for secondary school students across the Northern Territory.
