Students studying at Queensland Academies have access to an extensive range of university programs whilst they are studying the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. Current Year 11 student Genivieve Wert has been successful in obtaining access to the Start QUT Program where she is undertaking the Bachelor of Creative Industries - Screenwriting.
With a passion for creative writing Genivieve is studying An Introducation to Screenwriting where she hopes to learn the skills required to write her own film or theatre scripts alongside University students.
Genivieve is 3 weeks into her studies and she says "I am absolutely loving it! It's a completely different experience and I get to learn a different set of subject specific skills not offered at QACI. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 all lectures and tutorials are online but I have still been able to meet and work with some current university students. I have my first assessment coming up for the course which I am a bit nervous about but I'll just give it my best! From my first day at QACI we were encouraged to embrace the opportunities and I've really tried to do that with this course."
The IB Diploma Programme is widely recognised by the world's leading universities and QACI would like to congratulate Genivieve on taking the leap of faith to gain the additional knowledge and the skill base to prepare her for University proper.
