The University of the Sunshine Coast will hold a special Mid-year Entry Information Evening in Gympie tomorrow (Wednesday 1 May 2013) from 5pm to 6.30pm.
This free event at the Gympie Civic Centre on Mellor Street will give prospective students the chance to talk one-on-one with USC’s academic, administrative and support staff about how to start studying in July.
Gympie residents can attend any time between 5pm and 6.30pm. A 20-minute “Preparing for Study” seminar will begin at 5.30pm and include a presentation by a current USC student.
The information evening will outline the wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees available at the University’s main campus at Sippy Downs, and the study programs available at USC Gympie (Bachelor of Nursing Science, Bachelor of Primary Education, a bridging program called Tertiary Preparation Pathway and a Headstart program for senior high school students).
USC’s External Relations Manager Kylie Russell said the information evening would be helpful for anyone who was considering studying next semester, including those who have already applied.
“You will be able to find out about alternative entry pathways, studying overseas as part of your degree, the costs involved in studying and the financial support that is available,” she said.
“The Preparing for Study seminar will also provide some practical tips on preparing for your first semester at uni, insights into what university life is like, and details about USC’s support services,” she said.
Bookings are essential for the Gympie Mid-year Entry Information by emailing <firstname.lastname@example.org> or phoning (07) 5456 5000.
Another Mid-Year Entry Information Evening will be held at USC’s Sippy Downs campus on Wednesday 8 May, from 5pm to 6.30pm.
