       I have received the latest USC Courses and programs guide.  There is also information on Higher OP bonuses- for regional preferences, Maths C students, Athlete Bonuses and the QTAC Education Access Scheme bonus (which means they could give you up to 3 OP bonus points) to help you into USC.
       They are also offering a new LAW degree and have added 'Drama' as a major to the Bachelor of Arts degree.  In 2013- 54 students received scholarships to assist with their study costs (approx. $400 000 worth).  Make sure you investigate available scholarships through USC.
