Bundaberg CQUni campus part of diverse O Week

CQUni Bundaberg
CQUni Bundaberg's Orientation Week will begin soon.

CQUni will host a busy schedule of orientation activities at its Bundaberg campus on 5 March, with STEPS (Preparatory) Orientation starting earlier on 26-27 February.

It will be a time of learning and fun, according to CQUniversity’s Associate-Vice Chancellor for the Wide Bay Burnett Region Luke Sinclair, who said O Week presented many opportunities for students to get in the know about the next phase of their educational journey.

“We not only help our new students survive but also to thrive,” he said.

“Despite a reduced cohort of Year 12 school leavers, we hope to build our campus enrolments from the 2036 students we had last year.”

Luke said popular courses included – Nursing, STEPS (Preparatory Studies), Physiotherapy, Engineering, Education, Social Work, Accounting, Business, Occupational Therapy, Diploma of Nursing (VET).

He said orientation was 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,” Luke said.

“They will also attend course-specific sessions where they will learn about assessments, learning systems and additional opportunities including work integrated learning, social innovation projects and study abroad.

“New students who are unable to attend an event on campus can access a special online orientation module.”

Luke said as always, O Week would strike a balance between learning the ropes and finding opportunities for fun, entertainment and social networking.
