Gympie Open Day

If you’d like to try the latest technology or try on a new career, come along to Open Day at the University of the Sunshine Coast Gympie on Sunday 17 August from 11am to 2pm.

USC Gympie Manager Graham Young encouraged people from across the region and beyond to visit the learning hub at 71 Cartwright Road and see what’s on offer.

“Bring your family, enjoy the facilities, entertainment and food and be inspired by the stories of current students who are following their dreams,” he said.

Visitors will have the chance to experience high-tech nursing in the replica hospital ward, the latest techniques in primary education teaching, and virtual reality via the Oculus Rift goggles.

Programs available at USC Gympie in 2015 include Bachelor degrees in Business, Commerce (Accounting), Nursing Science and Primary Education, as well as Tertiary Preparation Pathway for adults and Headstart for senior school students.

“New in 2015 will be first-year courses for a number of Social Sciences-related degrees, such as Counselling, Social Work and Psychology,” Mr Young said.

“During term, students can use the shuttle bus which runs three times a day between the Gympie campus and the main Sippy Downs campus, enabling them to access other programs and courses not offered in Gympie.”

He said the USC Gympie Open Day would include seminars and one-on-one advice on study and career options for both school-leavers and mature-age students.

“Going to uni can be a big leap for some, so we’re providing plenty of practical tips that will help prepare you or your child for tertiary study,” he said.

Seminars for parents will offer tips on how to support students during the transition to university.
