ONE student at the Cooma Universities Centre (CUC) has already decided her 2014 resolution - to commence a Bachelor of Arts studied via distance education through Central Queensland University.
Shannen Venables Burt has been using the CUC since May last year to complete an alternate pathways course to University. Last Wednesday, Ms Burt received notification that she has successfully been admitted to study the Bachelor of Arts at CQU and will therefore continue her studies locally at the CUC.
Many universities that offer distance education degrees and courses are still open for direct application and enrolment to study in Semester One 2014 which will commence mid to late February. Some different degrees offered by distance that are currently being studied by students at the CUC are Arts, Education (primary and secondary school), Science, Business, Information Technology and Accounting.
A distance degree is done at your pace and your own time, but by utilising facilities like the Cooma Universities Centre, you are able to work in a dedicated study space, have access to high speed internet and engage with other students studying at University too.
If University study is something you have been thinking about, go and chat to the Cooma Universities Centre coordinator, Zoe Dawson, at the centre in Bombala Street, between Boyce and Cigana Workwear.
