People interested in studying Civil Engineering and Nursing Science at the University of the Sunshine Coast can now apply to start studying mid-year.
Information about these two degrees and the University’s many other study programs will be available at a special Mid-year Entry Information Evening at USC on Wednesday 8 May from 5pm to 6.30pm.
This free annual event gives prospective students the chance to talk one-on-one with USC’s academic, administrative and support staff about how to start studying in July.
People can attend any time between 5pm and 6.30pm, but a 20-minute “Preparing for Study” seminar starting at 5.30pm comes highly recommended for those who are new to tertiary education.
Entry to the Bachelor of Civil Engineering and the Bachelor of Nursing Science was previously only available in Semester 1, but the degrees have been added to the growing number of study programs at USC that now have mid-year entry.
USC’s External Relations Manager Kylie Russell said the information evening would outline the wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees available at the University.
She said it 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 by emailing <firstname.lastname@example.org> or phoning (07) 5456 5000.
