Orientation events for CQUniversity students will be held at the Bundaberg campus on Tuesday, 5 March.
As the academic year draws near, CQUniversity’s Bundaberg Region expects to start with around 390 new students, feeding into an expected 2019 full-year total of 2031 Higher Education and VET students (a 3.78 per cent increase on 2018 figures).
The most popular higher education courses this year include nursing, physiotherapy, education, psychology, occupational therapy and the STEPS access program.
Orientation is a key event on the University’s academic calendar, providing new students with information and skills they need to succeed.
Throughout the orientation program, students will have the chance to learn about student support services including scholarships, counselling, academic support and course advice.
They will also attend course specific sessions where they will learn about assessments, learning systems and extra-curricular activities such as work integrated learning and global study opportunities.
New students who are unable to attend an event on campus can access a special online orientation module.
Some campuses also host sessions for parents and partners of new students, who play a vital support role.
O Week aims to strike a balance between learning the ropes and finding opportunities for fun, entertainment and social networking.
CQUni TAFE students started their 2019 programs in early February.
