O Week for USC students

Posted: 2pm 16 Jul 2021

USC (University of the Sunshine Coast) is staging on-campus and online Orientation events next week (July 19-23) to help new students on its five campuses - which include Moreton Bay and Caboolture.

Semester 2 Orientation has program welcome sessions, support advice, academic workshops, stalls and campus tours to introduce students to USC before the start of classes on July 26.

Applications open

The cohort includes some who are starting university after a short break since finishing high school and others embarking mid-year on paths to gaining new skills and careers.

It is not too late to apply to study at USC in Semester 2, with the University still receiving direct applications for most programs until Wednesday August 4 (applications for Nursing Science have closed and applications for Education will close on Monday July 19).

USC will run a two-day Orientation at its Sunshine Coast campus on July 19-20 and Moreton Bay campus at Petrie on July 21-22.

Orientation events will be held at Caboolture on July 19, Fraser Coast on July 20 and at Gympie on July 21.

USC is also offering an online Orientation program from July 19-23.

Check In app

Health and safety measures are in place at all campuses to ensure a COVID-safe Orientation and those attending are reminded to use Queensland Government's Check In Queensland app.

With Queensland Health extending restrictions in South East Queensland for one more week, new students at Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay and Caboolture campuses are reminded to follow the guidelines requiring the use of face masks and social distancing.

The full USC Orientation program is at usc.edu.au.

Those interested in studying at USC can join the University’s interactive online Open Day on Sunday, July 18.
