“The Find Future You information sessions will help attendees learn more about CQU, how we can support you to be what you want to be and walk you through your next steps in getting there,” he said.

“For more personal support, visitors can also grab a treat or something to drink at the Careers Café and speak to support staff about their career goals, how to apply, entry pathways and anything they need to know about studying.”

Mr Sinclair also said there would be interactive activities across the campus facilities from a range of study areas including in selected labs and learning spaces.

“Featured sessions will cover some of our most popular courses here on the Bundaberg campus including allied health, nursing, engineering, agriculture and digital media,” he said.

“Here you can chat one-on-one with our expert lecturers and teaching teams to find out more about courses of interest and future career pathways.

“There will also be opportunities to learn more about enabling education and the many vocational study options on the campus.

“Prospective students can also find out more about CQUniversity’s many support services including careers, wellbeing and counselling, scholarships and Indigenous student engagement.”
