Hundreds of potential students, including those who have yet to apply, are expected to visit the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Sippy Downs campus on Monday 17 December for last-minute advice on enrolling to study in 2013.
The USC Options Q&A Evening will also benefit people who have already chosen the University of the Sunshine Coast as a QTAC preference. More than 9,000 people have put USC as a preference so far this year.
The event from 4pm to 6.30pm will feature academic, admissions and support staff offering one-on-one advice about degree options, pathways to university, overseas study as part of a USC degree, scholarships, fees, financial support and student services.
USC External Relations Manager Kylie Russell said group seminars and campus tours would attract students eager to have their questions answered in a welcoming environment.
“It’s a great opportunity for people who want more details on the University’s programs and courses, such as Business and Information Technology, Communication and Design, Education, Health, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science and Engineering,” she said.
“We have new offerings in Nursing Science and Midwifery, Drama, Animal Ecology, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and the proposed Law degree.”
Seminars also will be held to provide information for parents and partners who will be helping support the students.
Ms Russell said current USC students would share their experiences at the event.
“They’ll have plenty of tips on how to thrive in your first year of uni,” she said.
