Prospective UC students welcomed on campus for Course Advice Day 2021

Danielle Meddemmen

12 January 2021: The University of Canberra is ready to welcome prospective students to the Bruce campus this week for its annual Course Advice Day.

Those who have received an offer to study at the University during 2021 are invited to experience the University first-hand on Friday 15 January, meeting with staff and students for an insight into campus lifestyle and community.

The University will also be utilising the CheckInCBR app for COVID-safe check in on the day and is encouraging all who plan to attend to download the app prior to arriving at the campus.

Hand sanitising stations will be located at key touch points on the day, along with additional cleaning staff on hand.

Faculty specific tours will be held in small groups every half hour between 9am and 1pm, with attendees required to register prior to the event.

The day will also include tailored course advice and enrolment assistance available in the Refectory.

Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students, Partnerships and International), Professor Lawrence Pratchett said the event has always been a great opportunity for prospective students to start planning their university year.

“Course Advice Day has always proved extremely helpful for future students in talking with our friendly staff about academic programs, on-campus support services and accommodation options,” he said.

“I would encourage all prospective students to attend and take advantage of the one-to-one assistance with offer acceptance and enrolment processes.”

“After a quiet campus in 2020, we are really looking forward to welcoming people back to the University to showcase our facilities in a COVID-safe environment,” Professor Pratchett said.

“The Bruce campus is traditionally known for being a hub of activity and for its vibrant student life, so to revive that in 2021 will be fantastic.”

Course Advice Day is open to all prospective students, however border restrictions are currently in place for hotspots, and all intending to attend should check ACT Health guidelines before travelling.
