More than 400 undergraduate students received offers to study at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) today (January 15) as part of the Queensland Tertiary Admission Centre’s main offer round.

USQ Vice-Chancellor Geraldine Mackenzie congratulated all students who received an offer to commence their learning journey at USQ.

“Receiving an offer is a great achievement and we’re delighted so many students from diverse backgrounds have earned a place to study with us,” Professor Mackenzie said.

“To date, we have made over 2000 offers and look forward to welcoming our 2020 commencing student cohort to the University next month.”

Today’s round has issued 420 offers at USQ Toowoomba, USQ Springfield, USQ Ipswich and online.

USQ Ipswich is considered to be the health precinct campus of the University, offering popular degrees of Nursing and Paramedicine, whilst Springfield is popular for Education, Business and Engineering programs. With more than 100 degrees available, USQ is still accepting applications.

USQ Toowoomba will offer a Bachelor of Aviation for the first in Toowoomba this semester and will be home to an A320 flight simulator.

In late 2019, USQ announced a new scholarship scheme for high achieving school leavers.

To date, USQ has received 120 applications for these scholarships including 11 applications for the Chancellor’s Excellence Scholarship, 63 for the Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship and 46 for the Executive Dean’s Scholarship.

USQ continues to be the number one university in Australia for graduate starting salary, and Professor Mackenzie said the focus of USQ was preparing graduates for the future workforce.

“USQ produces graduates in professions such as nursing, teaching, engineering, law and accounting, keeping local students in the region and attracting students into the region who may stay after graduation,” she said.

“USQ offers outstanding supportive learning environments and a student-focused commitment to learning and teaching at all our campuses.”

Students will commence Semester One, 2020 on February 24.
