Early offer eases way to Southern Cross Uni
AS thousands of Year 12 students anxiously await their HSC results, Coffs Harbour's Ian Campbell is already planning his move to Southern Cross University next year.
Ian, who has just completed his HSC at John Paul College, is one of more than 100 students from across NSW and Queensland who have secured a spot at SCU, despite not having received their Year 12 results.
Through the STAR Entry Scheme, Ian has been offered a place in the Bachelor of Hotel and Resort Management course at the Coffs Harbour campus.
As part of its commitment to keep local students living, studying and, ultimately, working in the region, SCU last week offered places to Year 12 school students who were expected to score well in their final exams.
Offers were made to 104 students from schools in the Northern Rivers, the Mid North Coast and in southern Queensland based on their results during the year, and principal's recommendation.
Ian said he was extremely pleased to receive an early offer.
"I was really happy with it. I'm still hoping to get good results, but this has taken away lots of the stress," he said.
