Charles Darwin University’s (CDU) Higher Education Courses and Careers Night was a major success for all involved.
This year’s information night, held on 6 September, attracted in excess of 80 people and included sessions answering all the questions prospective students and their parents had about studying and life at CDU.
The night featured a variety of sessions for prospective students as well as lots of information for parents of school leavers about studying at CDU, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, the Tertiary Enabling Program, Indigenous entry and specialist research areas.
Adelia Mu-Prasad, Coordinator of Careers and Student Recruitment said the evening was both informative and entertaining and provided the answers for those who were thinking about studying at CDU.
“There was a range of prospective students wanting information, from school leavers and their parents to mature age people returning to the workforce or wanting to upgrade their qualifications, to graduates wanting to pursue further study.
“And from their feedback, it seemed they were pleased with the information and service they received on the night, which helped them to make a decision about study for next year, as well as the free BBQ and entertainment,” she added.
The strong representation from faculties and schools drew much attention as courses coordinator and lecturers fielded numerous enquiries.
Information on application procedures and careers advice were also available.
