UC welcomes prospective students at Course Advice Day 2020

9 January 2020: The University of Canberra is open for business and preparing to welcome around 1,000 prospective students and their families at Course Advice Day tomorrow, Friday 10 January 2020.

The University Admissions Centre is releasing a further 13,000 university offers at 7.30am on Friday 10 January, with those who have received an offer to study at UC invited to come to the Bruce campus to find out more about the career-orientated, sector-leading courses available at UC in 2020.

Prospective students will have the opportunity to meet their faculty and future lecturers to get tailored course advice and first-hand accounts of what it’s like to study at UC.

“Those who received an offer to study at the University of Canberra will be able to receive one-on-on assistance at Course Advice Day to apply and accept their offer, and enrol in units,” said Professor Lawrence Pratchett, Pro Vice Chancellor/Associate Vice President (Students, Partnerships and International).

“It is a wonderful opportunity to chat to our helpful staff about support services, pathway programs and accommodation providers, so prospective students can feel welcomed and comfortable before commencing their studies,” said Professor Pratchett.
