Something for everyone at Courses and Careers Night 


If you’ve got questions then Charles Darwin University (CDU) has the answers for you at tomorrow night’s Courses and Careers Night at Casuarina Campus.

This year’s information night will feature sessions answering all the questions prospective students and their parents could possibly want to know about studying and life at CDU, as well as a free BBQ for visitors to enjoy the friendly campus atmosphere.

There will be sessions for prospective students, as well as lots of information for parents of students thinking about studying at CDU in 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 will provide lots of answers for people who are thinking about studying at CDU.

‘Parents are often concerned about their children’s university experience. They want to be assured their child is receiving quality education that will prepare them for the workforce when they leave university.

‘The Courses and Careers Night aims to provide all the information a student thinking about study at CDU could possibly need and confirm for them that CDU is a great option for them,’ she added.

Professor Charles Webb, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Teaching & Learning, will present a report about the progress of CDU in the last three years, including highlights and achievements. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Information on CDU courses, careers advice and application procedures will also be available. A welcome and introduction from the deans of each of CDU’s faculties also feature on the program.

The event will include a free BBQ and entertainment, and a tour of the campus.
