Fast forward

Fast Forward is a UWS partnership with schools which helps students to see the value of continuing their education through to year 12 and beyond.

Fast Forward students are encouraged to strive for their personal best and to see tertiary study as a realistic and viable post-school option.

They participate in experiential learning opportunities which develop their skills and foster familiarity with the university environment. Students with academic and leadership potential are selected at the end of Year 8, to begin in Year 9.

Early in Year 9 students attend an awards ceremony where they are recognised for their achievements. This night takes place at UWS Kingswood Campus.

In Year 9 and Year 10, students attend a Skills day a UWS where they are able to have a look through the university as well as work on some skills that will help them out in future endeavours.

The program continues through to Year 12 at Senior Campus. Students get to participate in a shadowing day where they are matched with a university student studying the course the Fast Forward student is interested in. Students spend the day at UWS with the uni student, attending lectures, tutorials (and lunch breaks!).
