It's changed the lives of thousands of students already, and now CQUniversity's STEPS program is seeing its biggest year yet.
More than 1100 students are tackling the STEPS program in Term 1, across Bundaberg, Rockhampton, Mackay, Gladstone, Brisbane, Noosa and Sydney, and by Distance Education.
And plenty more aspiring students attended information sessions about the bridging program at all STEPS campuses this week.
CQUniversity's Skills for Tertiary Education Preparatory Studies (STEPS) is a free, Centrelink-approved enabling program that helps aspiring students get the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to start a degree – regardless of their age, background, or high school results.
It's an initiative that is key to making higher education more accessible and equitable, and the program is another reason that CQUniversity is emerging as one of Australia's great universities.
STEPS has grown exponentially in the past few years - in 2012, the intake was just 1300 across three terms.
STEPS Head of Program Chris Cook said he looked forward to seeing the eventual career paths of this year's new students.
“Every year there are so many inspiring stories from our STEPS graduates, in the degrees they tackle and the opportunities that study brings them,” Chris said.
“And as the program grows each year, so does the diversity of success stories – once they’ve achieved STEPS, our students really can achieve anything!”
The hour-long STEPS information session will be held at CQUniversity campuses at 9am on Wednesday, May 20. For more information contact CQUniversity on 13 27 86 or visit www.cqu.edu.au/steps.
