USC’s 2017 Open Day: Associate Lecturer in Health and Environment Jane-Louise Lampard chatting with Open Day visitors Leanne and Brittany Jenner

Careers that are likely to be in demand in the years ahead will be discussed in detail at the University of the Sunshine Coast’s annual Open Day on Sunday 22 July.

USC will hold a ‘Careers of the Future’ forum as one of many activities during Open Day, which is expected to attract thousands of prospective students from across the Sunshine Coast and further afield.

The forum will consider how people can study for jobs that don’t even exist yet and will look closely at the core skills needed by a future workforce.

Panellists will be USC’s High Performance Sport Director Professor Brendan Burkett, Associate Lecturer in Serious Games Katryna Starks and recent biomedical science graduate Gabrielle Schaffer who now works at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

Open Day will be held from 9.30am to 2pm at USC’s main campus at Sippy Downs and will have the theme ‘Rise, and shine starts here’. It is aimed at giving students all the information they need to make the most of their time at university.

Visitors will be able to inspect the campus, get questions answered, and learn more about the study programs they’re interested in by chatting one-on-one with USC academics.

They can sit in on real lectures across a wide range of disciplines to see what uni life is like, and attend information sessions that outline study programs and career opportunities.

There will also be other panel discussions that will focus on: how to choose the right university; what factors need to be considered when planning a gap year; and moves to overcome gender stereotypes in careers.
