The University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) campus in Petrie, situated some 7.2 kilometres off North Lakes, will be ready to welcome students in 2020. In line with its opening by February of next year, the institution will be hosting a “North Lakes: Meet USC Moreton Bay” event for parents and students who may be interested to study in Australia’s newest campus.
On Thursday, the 23rd of May 2019, representatives from USC will be at the Discovery Lounge of the North Lakes Sports Club on Flinders Parade to answer questions from potential enrollees, parents and other residents. The event will run from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Expected in the panel are USC Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill, USC Chief Operating Officer Scott Snyder, USC Pro Vice-Chancellor (Engagement) Professor Joanne Scott and Moreton Bay Mayor Allan Sutherland.
This is a free event but attendees must register their intention to be at the Q & A.
“This is an exciting project — in fact — it’s a game changer for our region,” Moreton Bay Mayor Allan Sutherland said when the campus’ development was first revealed. “Even those who don’t attend university will benefit from it being here.”
The new university will be the highlight of the Council’s ‘The Mill at Moreton Bay’ development project.
Construction of the upcoming campus has been progressing swiftly in the last eight months to complete its target opening date. Once opened, the campus will be known as USC Moreton Bay.
Found at the former site of the Petrie Paper Mill, the USC Moreton Bay campus will be a three-story university that can cater to 10,000 students. At least 50 undergraduate programs will be offered at the world-class institution for residents of Moreton Bay, nearby regions, and even New Zealand. By 2021 and 2022, the Petrie campus will add 16 more programs.
Submission of applications for Year 12 students at the USC Moreton Bay will start in August 2019. Interested individuals may refer to the application process on the USC website.
