Uni roadshow gives insight

“THERE is a great myth out there that you can live on two-minute noodles.”

This was among the practical insights for Year 12 students at Coffs Harbour High School when the University Roadshow visited on Tuesday.

Kenita Monks plans to study a Bachelor of Business at Southern Cross University and said the information session reaffirmed her choice.

“I like the idea of studying locally so I can save up and enjoy the area and I think the Coffs Harbour campus is a good one,” Kenita said.

“I did want to study law but since studying business subjects I realised I want to interact with people and I think business will allow me to do that.”

The University Roadshow unravels the unknown and covers topics like early entry, accommodation, facilities and services.

In its ninth year it will visit 110 schools and involves Southern Cross University, the University of New England and Charles Sturt University.

Coffs Harbour High School career advisor Dionne Court said it’s the first chance for students to explore their future study options.

“Many are still deciding whether to go to university and the roadshow takes some of the unknown away in a personable environment where they can ask questions,” Ms Court said.

Later in the year students will have a chance to visit the campus they are considering applying to go to.

The University Roadshow finishes its tour of local schools today.
