Senior Curriculum

In Years 11 and 12 students study for the Higher School Certificate (HSC), with a broad variety of Shared Course, ATAR, NON-ATAR, Vocational Education & Training (VET) and EVET study options.

Denison College facilitates intra-campus learning for senior students by providing a bus between campuses to enable senior students to move between campuses for classes.

Study in Year 11 and 12 – Choosing courses for senior studies
An integral part of Denison College is the sharing of senior curriculum (courses) across the campuses:

  • Students can tailor an individual senior curriculum which suits their particular needs
  • Students can access more than 100 HSC courses across campuses
  • College bus provides transport between campuses
  • Students can access externally delivered VET courses

In assisting students to select appropriate course for senior studies, Denison College produces The Senior Studies Guide. The guide contains:

  • Details of Higher School Certificate (HSC) requirements
  • List of courses offered
  • Description of all subjects on offer
  • Career Planning Guide
  • Offers suggestions on subject combinations compatible with broad career areas and pathways
