Students learn the 'Business of going to Uni'
The Y10-12 students who attended actively engaged with university staff, industry representatives and current business students to explore what it takes to study a business degree at university.
Students had the opportunity to work in groups with current university students to get detailed information on the range of business degrees available, as well as different study options. University academic staff were also on hand to discuss course options and explain the academic skills support and other student services which are typically available at universities.
Attending students commented that the most important thing they had learned on the day was: "...about what it takes to actually be at university and the study load involved", "...the many different things you can do after getting a business degree", and "communication is vital to business."
