Students experience university life

Year 11 and 12 students from across the region and beyond spent the day meeting with lecturers and current university students and attending various sessions on study areas, careers and pathways.

More than 200 future lawyers, nurses, engineers, teachers (and many more) visited the University of Southern Queensland’s (USQ) Toowoomba campus for Students Experience Day yesterday.

The students took part in hands-on activities based on their career interests and got a taste of university life.

Students Experience Day aimed to improve students' understanding of their post-school options so they can make informed decisions about their future.

The students explored a range of career fields, including Creative Arts (Theatre, Music and Visual); Agricultural Science; Astronomy and Physics; Biomedical Science; Business Management; Education; Engineering and Built Environment; and Food Science. 

Schools involved included Highlands Christian College, Toowoomba Christian College, Warwick SHS, Toowoomba SHS St Ursula’s College, St Saviours College, Downlands College, Wilsonton SHS and Tara Shire State College.
