Over a dozen Bundaberg Year 12 graduates can breathe a sigh of relief thanks to CQUniversity’s Principal’s Recommendation Scheme (PRS), which has provided 20 students guaranteed entry into university.
The scheme takes the pressure off while their peers anxiously wait for ATAR results this weekend.
The PRS is a program that provides an alternate entry pathway to CQU based on the recommendation of a school Principal, rather than ATAR.
The Principal's Recommendation Scheme secure a spot for 17-year-old Emma Drury.
She said she was thrilled to receive guaranteed entry into a Bachelor of Business which helped her to start planning her future before even graduating from high school.
“I applied for the PRS after attending an information session at school,” Emma said.
“I want to pursue a career in Marketing or HR, so it gave me peace of mind to know I have entry into my dream course.”
Associate Vice-President (AVP) for the Bundaberg Luke Sinclair believed the program was a great option for students to help take the stress out of school and final exams during a disruptive schooling year.
“At CQUniversity, we believe senior schooling results are an important factor leading to student success. We also recognise that other factors and attributes such as motivation, talent, and passion have a key role to play as well.”
