Applying for Science Academy (OUASSA)
To register for Science Academy (OUASSA) you need to:
- Apply at the end of your Year 12 for Year 13
- Have a strong interest and passion for science
- Have potential to excel at NCEA Level 3 / New Zealand Scholarship equivalent
- Demonstrate commitment to follow through and complete tasks
- Show willingness to develop your communication and teamwork skills
- Be nominated by your school who must fulfil one or more of the following criteria:
- Small (<150 pupils)
- Rural / provincial
- Lower decile (1–6)
If that sounds like you then contact your school's Head of Science, who needs to complete a Student Nomination Form on your behalf and have it signed by your principal.
You will then need to complete a Student Application Form telling us about yourself and why you want to join the Academy.
We also ask that you write a short essay telling us your thoughts on Science in the 21st Century (full details are on the Student Application Form).
