I've Finished!! Now What?
24 November 2015 - To all the students starting their own university experience, and to the ones still plotting away, my best advice for you is to enjoy the ride. Don’t be in a rush to finish. While your degree is the ultimate goal, it’s the friendships and precious experiences you gain along the way that become almost more important in shaping you for life beyond USC.
Work, Social Life and Study: It's a Balancing Act!
17 November 2015 - Studying here at USC has given me this opportunity: to rise, and shine, take centre stage and put my Creative Writing ambitions into action. Two years ago, I would have never believed the feats I've achieved. They are by no means 'high flying', but becoming a Student Ambassador, being published now twice in USC's Creative Writing Anthology and performing for this year's Art Gallery Twilight Markets are just some of the experiences I've had, and a semester abroad in Italy will surely be the highlight of my degree! No matter what stage you're in, age or background you are in, there is something at USC for everyone.
Nursing Student Jess Takes Flight
11 November 2015 - Having the opportunity to work alongside a team of health professionals I have much admiration for is an experience I will never forget. Recently I got to take on a placement experience with The Royal Flying Doctors Service where I got to observe and handle real life emergency situations. Studying a Bachelor of Nursing Science at the University of the Sunshine Coast has opened my eyes to a world of nursing that I have never experienced before.
