Welcome to Elizabeth Blackburn School of Sciences
The Elizabeth Blackburn School of Sciences is now accepting applications for 2018. Our first cohort of students completed their VCE with outstanding results.
The new School is a branch of The University High School that has been designed to cater and engage young people in years 11 and 12 who have a passion and the potential for success in the fields of Science & Mathematics. The Elizabeth Blackburn School of Sciences has been designed in partnership with DEECD, University of Melbourne and Bio21 and will expose students to the latest innovations and excellence in the teaching of contemporary science and mathematics.
Students enrolled in the Elizabeth Blackburn School of Sciences at The University High School will be provided with a rigorous academic program focussed on the sciences and mathematics in a very supportive and engaging environment. Students will be mentored by University of Melbourne post graduate students from Bio21, The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI) or other Science, Engineering and Mathematical Institutes in our precinct, who will guide them to maximise their learning opportunities.
