Danielle Griffiths of Cooma may have only just graduated from the University of Canberra, but she already has her dream job.
Ms Griffiths was awarded a Bachelor of Business Informatics at a ceremony at Parliament House.
"I did an ICT cadetship and I'm continuing as a business analyst so I'm already doing my dream job," the former Monaro High School student said.
The University of Canberra hosted its mid-year graduation ceremonies when 1,304 students graduated, with many coming from rural and regional areas.
University of Canberra Vice-Chancellor Professor Stephen Parker congratulated the students on their academic success.
"At the University of Canberra we aim to prepare students for a successful and rewarding career and we are delighted to be attracting more students from regional areas," Professor Parker said.
Work is now well underway on the University campus for the new University of Canberra Public Hospital and GP Super Clinic. The University of Canberra Brumbies will also relocate to the campus as part of a new Sporting Commons.
Regional students graduated ready for careers in areas including education, science, commerce, nursing, public relations and journalism.
