Senior high school students in the Blue Mountains and Central West will get the chance to discover more about university life and potential career paths when the University Road Show comes to town on next week.
 
With Denison College, Bathurst hosting one of the events, career advisor Dennis Behan says the University Road Show is a wonderful opportunity for his students as well as students from other local high schools.
 
“A large percentage of Bathurst school graduates complete their tertiary education at regional universities and this is a chance to hear from three different universities in the one session enabling students to consider a number of options for future study,” Mr Behan says. “Often regional students have difficulty attending university open days, so here the universities come to them. The sessions are very informative and give lots of time for questions about both the study options and the admissions process."
 
Year 12 is a time when most students decide on their path for the future. Everyone wants to be successful and to make the best choices, but accessing the right information at the right time is not always easy.
 
That’s where Charles Sturt University, Southern Cross University and the University of New England can help. These universities recognise the importance of helping students select the right study options. That’s why they go direct to regional students via the University Road Show.
 
Now in its eleventh year, the University Road Show will visit more schools than ever before, sharing information with around 5 000 students at 120 schools.
 
As Charles Sturt University Prospective Student Adviser Ms Fran Dwyer explains, the University Road Show provides senior high school students with accurate and timely information regarding university education.
 
“By pooling resources, Charles Sturt University, Southern Cross University and the University of New England are able to provide excellent advice to students in one visit, maximising the study options presented to students while minimising the amount of time students need to be away from the classroom.”
 
The University Road Show will be in Winmalee and Lithgow on Monday 13 February, Mudgee on Tuesday 14 February, Dubbo and Wellington on Wednesday 15 February, Orange on Thursday 16 February and Bathurst on Friday 17 February.
