Early College Entrance in Australia
Jung, Jae Yup; Young, Marie; Gross, Miraca U. M.
Roeper Review, v37 n1 p19-28 2015
Early college entry is an educational intervention that is being increasingly used in Australia. Following a review of the current Australian literature on early college entry, an overview is provided of the characteristics of, and the procedures associated with, one formal Australian early college entry program (the Early Admission for Exceptionally Talented Students Scheme at The University of New South Wales). Thereafter, a discussion is presented of the insights that may be gained from the research to optimally address the intellectual and socioemotional development of exceptionally gifted students who may be candidates for early college entry. Finally, a number of suggestions for the direction and focus of future research are made.
