The Bachelor of Arts - Enhanced Program for High Achievers is available to school leavers, higher education transfer and special entry applicant and is designed to offer high achieving applicants additional challenging material to enable them to maximise their intellectual growth and potential. It provides students with an environment where they can come together with other students who have similar capabilities, to develop their interests and share ideas.

Students will be assigned an academic mentor throughout the degree, who will supervise them during their third year project and who will facilitate their participation in a WorkReady Internship Program, Study Abroad Program and/or Workplace Experience and Career Development topic in the second or third year of the degree.

These topics will introduce them to inquiry and research methodologies, address broad questions affecting the modes and practices of study across Arts disciplines and investigate the seminal assumptions that unite and differentiate the intellectual communities of the Humanities, Sciences and the Social Sciences. They will also provide students with the opportunity to develop leadership and collaborative skills, and undertake a project in the final year of the Program.
