New students commence studies in Wangaratta


Monday, 16 Feb 2015

Wangaratta campusNew students will kick start their university degrees by attending Orientation Day at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wangaratta this week.

Students studying Agricultural Business Management, Agriculture, Horticulture, Wine Business, Education (Birth to five years), and Veterinary Technology will gather at the CSU Wangaratta Regional Study Centre on Tuesday 17th February 2015 from 10.30am to familiarise themselves with the facility and meet academic staff.

"Orientation Day is an opportunity for new students to meet up with fellow students at the start of their course to make important connections," Wangaratta Centre Manager Ms Robyn Farley said.

"They can acquaint themselves with Charles Sturt University's services which can assist them in their study including the library and academic study support. They'll also be experiencing all of the Wangaratta facilities first hand."

2015 will be the first year of the Bachelor of Veterinary Technology with over 70 students commencing in the inaugural cohort. The Veterinary Technology course is an integrated degree and a joint project between CSU and GOTAFE.

Construction of the new CSU-GOTAFE facility on Tone Rd, Wangaratta was completed late last year.

Over 2,600 new on-campus students will be welcomed to all CSU campuses for semester one.
