Adults seeking to change careers or boost their work prospects are invited to a special event at the University of the Sunshine Coast campus at Sippy Downs tonight (Wednesday 18 September).
The USC Adult Entry to University Information Evening from 5-7pm will provide details on how people can return to study as mature-age undergraduate students.
Visitors will be able to chat one-on-one with USC staff about course options, career prospects, study costs, scholarships and financial assistance.
They can also attend seminars, go on campus tours and speak with current students about what university life is like.
University External Relations Officer Macaela French said more than half of USC’s students were aged over 21 and there was a wide range of support services to help them succeed.
“It’s never too late to go to university,” she said. “You don’t need a Year 12 qualification to get in. You can apply for entry based on your employment experience, post-secondary qualifications and life experience.
“Alternatively, USC’s Tertiary Preparation Pathway program is very useful to improve your academic skills and gain confidence.”
For more details or to book visit USC Adult Entry to University Information Evening or call 5456 5000.
A separate Postgraduate Studies Information Evening will be held on 2 October.
