Senior students looking ahead

SENIOR students are realising that next year is approaching all too quickly and plans for 2013 need to be made.

That was the overwhelming feeling among more than 1,000 students who attended today's Tertiary Open Day held at Southern Cross University.

Year 12 students from as far away as Maclean, Macksville and Dorrigo were able to take information from any number of more than 40 exhibitors at today's event.

Every single university in NSW bar two were in attendance today to answer the questions of any students looking for information regarding tertiary study in 2013.

Also on hand were staff members from Queensland Universities Bond, QUT and Griffith.

Coffs Harbour Senior College carrers advicaor Lance Noel has been a driving force behind the tertiary open days and he said each year the students gain a clearer picture of what their future plans look like.

"For the students this is really good because you've got all of the organisations under one roof," Mr Noel said.

"Being in Coffs Harbour you usually can't talk to everyone that you want to but today you can so it's a great benefit to the students."
