Calen students ready to tackle uni
Published on 19 March, 2013
CQUniversity Mackay welcomed twelve Year 10 students from Calen District State College for their two-day Uni Skills program this week.
Uni Skills is a structured Engage Education program run by the CQUniversity Widening Participation team. This program aims to provide students with insight into higher education and its benefits.
As part of their program, students participated in a campus tour, academic writing sessions, career planning and experiential activities in the areas of Geoscience, Business and Chiropractic Science.
They also heard from a guest speaker from the CQ Institute of TAFE, who spoke about the school programs available to senior students and the potential pathways from TAFE to university.
