What our students say


Sophie always wanted to go to uni, but her HSC results just weren't enough to get in. Sophie didn't want to miss out, so she enrolled in Newstep. Sophie worked hard in Newstep to achieve her university dream, and is currently studying a double degree in Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Commerce.


Peter was unwell during his schooling, and was unable to achieve an ATAR in his HSC. Rather than embarking on more time-consuming pathways to uni, Peter enrolled in Newstep. Newstep was a major turning point for Peter, who is now in his final year of the Bachelor of Mathematics/Bachelor of Science program.
