LAUNCH your tertiary studies at CHC before leaving high school.
LAUNCH offers you the opportunity to excel academically and to experience life as a student at CHC by studying up to two units while you are completing Semester 2 of Year 11 and/or Semester 1 of Year 12 (one unit per semester).
CHC offers early entrance admission to your tertiary level studies and subjects may count towards your QCE.
Successfully complete a CHC unit during Year 11 and/or Year 12 at high school and automatically gain admission to an undergraduate course when you graduate from Year 12 (subject to any additional entry requirements or prerequisites) and receive credit towards the completion of your degree.
LAUNCH students are not required to pay tuition fees, but are required to meet any personal study costs such as text books, etc.
Enquiries about LAUNCH should be directed to: Student Administration

Phone: 07 3347 7900
The LAUNCH program is offered outside normal school hours, and students are expected to attend all the required contact hours of the unit into which they have been accepted. You will be a member of a class of first year CHC students undertaking that unit as part of their undergraduate degree.
LAUNCH units normally require 3 hours of on campus contact per week, two hours for lectures and one for tutorials. In order to successfully complete your LAUNCH unit, you will need to commit to up to an additional five hours of personal study per week. Just remember that this commitment is on top of your Year 11 and/or Year 12 study program.
Entry to LAUNCH
You are eligible to apply for entry LAUNCH if:
- you are in Year 11 or 12
- you are achieving HA and/or VHA levels for your subjects at school
- you have the support of your school and parents/guardians
Queensland Studies Authority reporting requirements :
For Year 12 students completing the Queensland Certificate of Education, CHC is required to inform the Queensland Studies Authority of students enrolled in the LAUNCH program and their resulting grades. This is for recording on the Queensland Certificate of Education. A LAUNCH unit is recorded as two credits of Advanced courses of study – it does not count towards your OP.
