What is Children’s University?

Children’s University Australia provides students with exciting free range learning activities outside their day to day school work. Children’s University is voluntary therefore, students get to choose what activities they would like to do. This allows them the freedom to direct their education and focus on activities that interest them. The activities they complete and the topics they learn about are all connected to subjects that can be studied at real universities.

Validated Children’s University Australia Learning Destinations (like the SA Whale Centre) all have a Children’s University Australia Learning Destination sticker in the window. Children take their Passports to Learning with them and get a stamp for the time they have spent learning. The more activities they do, the more hours and stamps they will get in their Passports, and the closer they are to graduating.

Once they have collected enough hours, students will graduate. Where they are presented with their completion certificate at a special ceremony. (They even get all dressed up in a cap and gown, just like the older university students!)
