Future students to find out more about teaching, nursing at UOW Eurobodalla
Information session to include interactive teaching session and visit to on-campus nursing lab
The tyranny of distance can be a considerable barrier to undertaking study and achieving career dreams, particularly for those who live in regional and remotes areas.
The University of Wollongong (UOW) Eurobodalla is encouraging those in the wider region who have considered a career in nursing or teaching to attend an information session this Saturday (14 October) and discover what the Batemans Bay-based campus has to offer. The event will provide future students with the opportunity to explore the on-campus nursing lab and experience an interactive teaching session, as well as hear about the many careers available in nursing and teaching.
Jaimey Facchin, Campus Manager of UOW Eurobodalla, said having a campus in a regional area provided local students with immense opportunity without having to relocate.
“There are many high school students who don’t want to move away for university, who may not have the financial means to do so or may want to study with the support of their family and friends. At the same time, postgraduate students who are looking for a career change often have family and work obligations that make relocating difficult or impossible,” Ms Facchin said. “This has become even more pertinent in a post-pandemic world that has highlighted the importance of local communities and the value of frontline workers like teachers and nurses.
“We are delighted that we can offer fantastic study opportunities in a regional community. Our classes are small and our environment is warm and welcoming, so students have all the tools they need to succeed in their chosen career.”
UOW Eurobodalla offers a Bachelor of Nursing for school leavers and non-school leavers. The Master of Teaching program is aimed at postgraduate non-school leavers, however, graduates can begin their teaching qualification by undertaking a relevant Bachelor degree – in Arts, Business, or Economics and Finance – followed by the Masters in either Primary or Secondary Teaching Methods.
Locals without an ATAR or equivalent are also invited to attend. UOW College offers a pathway program that can be studied at UOW Eurobodalla, that - on successful completion - provides guaranteed entry to all degrees offered at this campus. In most cases, the UOW College program is fee-free.
