I was lucky enough to attend a Professional Development day at the University of the Sunshine Coast last Friday.
What an outstanding University. I was very impressed with their staff, the facilities and the courses on offer.
The University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) campus that I visited was in Sippy Downs although it has many other locations. Their website is very informative if this University is an option for your child. https://www.usc.edu.au/
USC offers many courses from Bridging and Prep courses to TAFE to Bachelor Degrees and Honours programs.
The Open Day for USC, Sippy Downs Campus is on Sunday 23 July 2017.
Note: USC’s undergraduate degrees are available on campus only.
USC offers the following:
- Bridging and Preparatory Courses
- USC offers three different courses that are designed to help you succeed at your studies.
- Diploma Degree Programs
- Associate Degree Programs—2 Years Full-Time or Equivalent Part-Time
- Undergraduate Degree and Honours Programs
- USC / TAFE Queensland East Coast Articulation Pathways
- These pathways are specific articulations between the University of the Sunshine Coast and TAFE Queensland East Coast. There are many other pathways to USC if you have already studied at TAFE.
- USC / TAFE Queensland Brisbane, South Bank Articulation Pathways
- These programs are delivered by USC at TAFE Queensland Brisbane, South Bank.
Thanks to USC for looking after me last Friday and with the new Hospital at the Sunshine Coast we will see this University growing with Allied Health Pathways, plus we will see the population growing with many other jobs within the community springing up – to support the Hospital.
